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 we hike up to Prabalmachi to try and capture this scene in our mind and camera if possible. This is a kid-friendly event so bring along the little ones to enjoy the rustic experience of camping and the wonder of fireflies.
