Fireflies or Lightning Bugs are insects belonging to the Beetle order. With the rampant developments around the cities; these dazzlers are now pushed away to fringes of the extended city where the trees/shrubs still exist.

The small window in time just before the rains arrive gives us the opportunity to witness a beautiful spectacle of dazzling fireflies. It’s the mating season for these fireflies & as a result thousands of them light up around trees and shrubs making it a rare and beautiful sight.

Join  Canvas N Chrome as head off to an Obscure & Uncrowded village to try and capture this scene in our mind and camera if possible while enjoying the rustic village experience.

Note: This event can be considered as Child Friendly - so bring along the little ones & introduce them to the outdoors!

 Important Notes:

 

  • There is no Trekking involved in this event & hence children & families open to the idea of walking/hiking are most welcome 

  • The walk/hike is graded as Easy because of an easy trail/walk on tar road which leads to the forested patch where we can view the Fireflies; Endurance grade is Medium as we will be walking around for about 3 hours.

  • Wearing full clothes (Track pants + Full sleeve Shirt) is advisable – Prevents cuts & bruises while walking through the forest & also protects from insect bites.

  • Track pants advisable – Jeans can get uncomfortable on treks & also tend to soak & retain water if it rains, avoid as far as possible

  • Trekking/Sports shoes advisable – Covered feet provide safety from stubbing your toes on rocks, etc and also from insect/snake bite.

  • Extra Floaters/Footwear advisable – Sports shoes tend to open up/tear during walks through rain & having an extra pair of floaters helps.

  • A sturdy & comfortable backpack/haversack advisable – To stock all the gear & keep hands free while walking.

  • Packing of all essentials in polythene advisable – To protect from getting wet in the rain.

  • A good torch is compulsory – for the night walk

  • Please carry a water bottle from home - refill option is available for free in our home stay & this prevents addition of plastic bottle trash in a pristine environment

  • Carrying Mosquito repellent gel/spray/patches would be recommended

  • Carrying at least 2 liters of water is advisable.
