Fireflies Special Night Trek To Kothaligad-Peth

Kothaligad, Pethwadi
2 Days1 Night

Event Overview

Fireflies Festival :
We are all set to host one of the most eye-catching outing of this season – The Fireflies Festival. Pre-monsoon climate is the ideal period for fireflies and glow-worms for mating and in pursuit of the mate, hundreds of fireflies gather together on a tree displaying their bio-luminescent lights in the dark nights. Dense forests is just the perfect place for these twinkling creatures for this kind of ritual and this is the exact time when we can experience synchronous twinkling of hundreds of fireflies- one of the most beautiful phenomena in nature.

Peth Fort is situated in Shahapur taluka, Karjat district. Height of this fort is 3100 ft above sea level. This fort is also known as Kothaligad because of the internally excavated stairs at the fort top. During the specific period of pre-monsoon, thousands of fireflies males glow in mating display to attract females. This is one of the best natural phenomena one can expect…This fort is very small in size but was used as an ammunition storage and defense station during Sambhaji Maharaj’s era. This fort is surrounded with other forts like Bhimashankar, Rajmachi, Dhak, Sidhhagad and Prabalgad
