Event Description

This season come and join us to experience a natural phenomenon so unique that its almost magical, where millions of fireflies swarm the forests around Pune/ Mumbai.

Our past experience on such trips has been great! Especially for those witnessing a natural phenomena like this for the first time. However we’ve felt that some serious PHOTOGRAPHERS who dedicate most of their time for an expensive passion are the ones who don’t get much time spend to in the forest, mainly because they have to adhere to the schedules made for the entire group (From safety perspective esp with children and senior citizens).

So here is the opportunity to spend a full night taking photographs of the starry sky against millions of fireflies. The limit for this group is 15 photographers only (Those with DSLRs and Tripods). Your group will be lead by an expert to locate sightings of the fireflies.
