Chasing the Fireflies Ratangad Camping at Bhandardara
Camping Under the Dark Sky with Glowing Fireflies !!
Join Us In Chasing Fireflies in the Fireflies Festival (Kajwa Mahotsav)
‘They are the one who bring light in the darkness, and
without darkness, they could never be able to shine’.
Fireflies are tiny insects which display the bio-luminescence character! With the arrival of first monsoon showers, the fireflies radiate fluorescent green light from their body to attract their mates which are a treat to watch.
When Hundreds of Fireflies exude light together you will feel as if you are standing among millions of stars dancing around, this phenomenon of natural light is truly mesmerizing.
Come along with us and play with these little creatures as they will keep amusing you all night!
Awaken the photographer in you to capture the nature’s true beauty and behold it in your memories.
Situated by the Pravara River, Bhandardara is blessed with peace and tranquility with a relaxing view. You can spot many famous landmarks including the Kalsubai peak and Ratangad, Harishchandragad forts. Deep and dark, the
valley of shadows in Ratangad Forest and adjacent Samrad.
This village is a home to millions of fireflies. The shining bluish green water of Bandardara surrounded with lush green mountains are a treat to eyes.
With all these beautiful values, imagine your self-camping with us at the edge of the Bhandardara lake along with your friends, good food, and fun. A cozy night in camping tent under a sky full of stars enjoying the true beauty fo life and nature.
Twinkling Fireflies showing their patterns giving you the happiness worth a Camp are the highlight of this event.
Experience rustic village stay–camping or home-stay in the case of rains. Night Strolls, mystery stories around Samrad and Ratangad will keep you hooked in its beauty!
This is a weather-based activity. Fireflies are best seen just before the arrival of the monsoons. Hence this is the best time to spot these fascinating twinkles of light. Since Monsoons have showered early this year, spotting of a good number of fireflies cannot be guaranteed, in the case of heavy showers or inclement weather conditions. However camping in light rains can surely be one of the most beautiful experience ever. In case if the weather becomes inclement then alternate arrangements will be made for night stay.
