Trek India Welcomes you for the Fireflies Special Trek to Kothaligad
Well, leave it on us then. Trek India has got wonderful plans for you to enjoy another fun-filled weekend with fireflies, homestay/tents stay and authentic home-cooked food.
About Fireflies: -
Fireflies belong to the family of beetles, and not flies as they are commonly mistaken for. These nocturnal winged beetles use bioluminescence, a chemical reaction when oxygen combines with luciferin, which is present in the lower abdomen of the insect to produce light.
All fireflies glow as larvae. Bioluminescence serves a different function in the larvae than in adults. It appears to be a warning signal to predators, for, the larvae contain chemicals that are either
distasteful or toxic.
Kothaligad is a Fort with a height of 3100 ft above sea LEVEL. It is also known as the Fort of Peth because of its vicinity to Peth village at its base. There are a small temple and large cave at the base and a chimney like a tunnel to the top of the fort. This pinnacle is carved from inside forming a staircase reaching the top.

In case of any unexpected change in weather or other unforeseen situations that are beyond our control and due to which camping may not be feasible, the operator will try their best to make alternate stay arrangements in the nearby homestay OR village (subject to availability).
