Camp with the Fireflies by Mapping Journeys
"Every blink of a firefly's light says .... Believe!"
As children, you've spent summers chasing them and wondering how are these insects able to light up?
They never failed to amaze you and astonish you. Here is a chance to be amazed yet again.
We will be visiting the small yet beautiful Shinganwadi nearby Samrad village. This village is the home to the famous Sandhan Valley Trek during the Winters, to a reverse waterfall during Monsoons and to fireflies during Summers. Witness the fireflies emitting their lights and camping with you.

Once at Shinganwadi we will freshen up and proceed for early dinner. After dinner we will stroll to the campsite which is 15 minutes from the base village.
This campsite shows off bright stars as not many light sources are present in the vicinity. The nights are always pleasingly cold. We will spend the night gazing at the stars, appreciating the fireflies' lit trees, and sleep by the campfire!
