Fireflies Trek and camping at Sandhan Valley is one of the best places to see millions of fireflies at one place in India during pre-monsoon season. Fireflies or lightning bugs make light within their bodies. This process is called bio-luminescence and is shared by many other organisms, mostly sea-living or marine organisms. Fireflies light up to attract a mate. To do this, the fireflies contain specialised cells in their abdomen that make light.
Sandhan Valley: The Valley of Shadow.
Sandhan Valley is situated in the western ghats of Sahyadris. The valley is located on the west side of beautiful Bhandardhara region near Samrad village. The village itself is located approx. at 3000 fts above sea level. Valley is surrounded by Alang, Madan, Kulang, Kalsubai, Ratangad and Ajoba mountain range. Hiking through Sandhan Valley gives you the best of light and shadow experience while walking into it.
It is awesome experience to capture fireflies in cameras. You can capture the Fireflies trail using long exposure. Also you can experiment with Multiple Exposure shots to capture multiplied effect of the flies.
