2 Days1 Night

Event Overview

Look at thousands of sparkling fireflies Camping at the hill-top, Panoramic view of both Kalavantin & Prabalgad Heya peeps! Looking for more share of fireflies without having to travel too far? Prabalmachi is a base village for Prabalgad and Kalavantin here you have one of the best hilltop camping experience surrounded by thousands of fireflies. Fireflies will be back this monsoon to show their magic show. Join us to watch these tiny magical messengers of hope. Magic happens when these tiny flies glow like ferry lights. It's one magical sight.

Imagine thousands of fireflies lighting up at precisely the same time, over and over, from dusk to dark. The most spectacular show is said to be the mass synchronous display of several Pteroptyx species in Southeast Asia. Masses of male fireflies congregate in groups (called leks) and in unison emit rhythmic courtship flashes. Fireflies or lightning bugs are from the family Coleoptera:Lampyridae, and they may well be our most beloved insect, inspiring poets and scientists alike. Most importantly to remember, fireflies not neither flies nor bugs. Fireflies are actually beetles and there are 2,000 species on our planet.
