About Prabalmachi Camping

Want to spot fireflies just 1-hour drive from Mumbai. So Prabalmachi is your next destination.

Prabalmachi Trek is one of the best weekend treks near Mumbai. Your trekking will start from Panvel. At Panvel station, you will be welcomed by our company representative and then transferred to the base village of Thakurwadi.

Camping at Prabalmachi is an exciting and fun-filled experience overflowing with unique stories, and unexploited nature, under a blanket of the star-studded sky and in the midst of a forest full of fireflies.

Fireflies or lightning bugs are structured with specailized cells in their abdomen which emit light. Behold the glimmering thrill of millions of fireflies through your naked eyes, and capture this gripping phenomenon with your lens. This trek will not give you the pleasant of hiking up a mountain, but the view of fireflies along the route to the prabalmachi.

It offers a breathtaking picturesque backdrop of both Prabalgad and Kalavantin Durg, with a scenic valley view of the outskirts of Panvel.
