Overview

Adventure Geek invites you to the Purushwadi Fireflies Festival 2024 from Mumbai and Pune

Have you ever dreamt of a place where millions of Fireflies dance? But, why dream when you can actually visit and experience it

People travel in search of adventure, places, culture, religion, cuisine and so much more; and then, you have Purushwadi. A place that attracts those in search of some good, old-world charm, for it has swarms of fireflies coming in. 

Yes, you read that right; this tiny village in Maharashtra, at a drive of some four hours from Mumbai, is the stuff that all good dreams are made of. So much so that Purushwadi also plays host to a Fireflies Festival every year, right when the monsoons are about to hit India.

If you have a taste for surreal, Purushwadi is an ideal getaway from both Pune and Mumbai. A sliver of a place, it attracts fireflies to its lush green areas; especially before the monsoons when the mating season for the species is on then. May-June is the best time to visit Purushwadi, especially if the place has seen a light rain shower or two, and if you do not mind getting drenched in sudden bursts of rain. Remember that a heavier rain burst ends up killing the species and you might miss on the extravaganza; so yes, go before the actual Maharashtra monsoons hit.
