Trek Overview

Watching fireflies is always exciting, but imagine thousands of fireflies twinkling lights together in a dark forest. This is what you can witness in Fireflies Night Trek to Kothaligad. This event usually takes place during pre-monsoon time which is the ideal period for fireflies and other glow worms for mating. They light up to attract their mate. This process is called bioluminescence. In Kothaligad you can see thousands of fireflies creating a beautiful spectacle and magical pattern. You are definitely gonna amaze by the view and the surrounding, we bet on that.

Kothaligad is attracted by many visitors during the fireflies event. Kothaligad is also known as Peth fort because the village of Peth is situated at the bottom of Kothaligad. The Peth fort is getting a great view from the base village. Steps are made to reach the top of the Peth fort. Caves carved out of huge rocks, Bhairoba cave, small water tanks, and some cannonballs are the best things to visit in Kothaligad fireflies camping. In the morning, descend with memories or challenge yourself for an adventure as you can hike up the carved leading the head.

So, what are you waiting for? Just put on your trekking shoes, take your camera, and join us for the Fireflies Night Trek to Kothaligad.

On the trek to Kothaligad, I had a fantastic experience with the LBYD team. Everyone’s safety was guaranteed by the two guides,, who were quite cordial. Along with a friend, I made a reservation for this trek, and the two of us met the guide at the base camp that same day along with the other guests who had made reservations. We all trekked together to the summit because  instilled a sense of teamwork in us from the beginning. This journey was undoubtedly memorable. Will advocate LBYD to anyone looking for a wonderful trekking experience in Maharashtra.

It was a wonderful experience to “live before you die.” It was a wonderful experience that you must go on at least one trip with them to have for yourself. Trek guides were helpful and kind.

I travelled to Kothaligad with LBYD. The trip was excellent, and the hike leader was highly competent. I’m eager to go on more adventures with LBYD.
