Camping with Fireflies at Kondana Caves

Kondana Caves near Karjat.
1 Day1 Night

Event Overview

Fireflies are basically insects which display the bio-luminescence character!! They actually throw out fluorescent green light from the body to attract their mate. This phenomenon of natural lighting is so mesmerizing that at times one can experience thousands of fireflies flashing the light which is one of the best natural sights to behold. We have happily coupled this beautiful experience with camping near the foothills of Kondana caves near Karjat. These caves are located at the bottom of Rajmachi fort and offer a wonderful short trek of about an hour to reach atop the caves. This Buddhist caves is a nice example of Indian architecture and offers good scope for photographer and nature lovers.
