Fireflies Festival Camping
“Cause I'd get a thousand hugs, from ten thousand lightning bugs, as they tried to teach me how to dance! ” – Fireflies, Owl City.
A firefly is actually a beetle. A one of a kind insect which emit Bioluminescence to impress its female counterpart. It’s a celebration, before the shower of love!
Witness the surreal glowing magic of millions of flies through your naked eyes, and capture this mesmerizing action with your lens.
Prabal machi is a huge meadow perched on a hilltop which is not too high above the sea level. It’s an ideal setting for camping as it’s got all the basic amenities (washroom etc.). Interestingly, Prabalmachi is also the base village for a popular trek in the area, Kalavantin Durg. Enthusiasts can join us for an optional morning trek to catch the first sunrise from the top of this geological wonder!
