Why Rajmachi fireflies night trek?
An exciting climb up to the Rajmachi Fort in Maharashtra is a terrific alternative if this thrills you and you can watch the beautiful fireflies flashing in the dark. The Rajmachi Fort walk features a very scenic track with a string of intriguing sights like waterfalls and Buddhist caves, making it ideal for a long weekend. A historic fort with a stunning view greets you at the summit of your walk. The Rajmachi Peak has historical significance dating back to the First Anglo-Maratha War when porters used this route to reach the fort. Two important forts on this summit, the Shrivardhan Fort and the Manaranjan Fort, were declared protected monuments after independence.
Initial 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 are 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. Experience doesn’t need any explanation its phenomenon and visuals leave you with moments to cherish for a lifetime.
