The best experience combo of a hike and camping amidst the fireflies

The beautiful village of Samrad is home to the Sandhan valley and the much celebrated Sandhan Valley is home to a swarm of fireflies in summers.

Fireflies are a special type of insects that throw out fluorescent green light from their body. This light is also called as the ‘cold light’, as it generates very little heat. These insects are known to emit light when air hits their abdomen and also when they want to attract their mate. This phenomenon of magical natural lighting is very captivating and if you’re lucky, you will witness thousands of fireflies flashing their lights and flying around you.

Sandhan Valley Trek is so magnificent that you can never get enough of it no matter how many times you visit the valley. To add more beauty to the already stunning landscape of the place, we have a trail that leads you to countless light emitting fireflies.

In the day you will be captivated by the surrounding gems of Alang, Madan, Kulang, Kalsubai, Ratangad and the Ajoba forts. In the night you will be captivated by the mesmerising lights of the fireflies. Sounds like a perfect magical weekend trip to take along with your friends!
