About The Event

Grassroutes Journeys Presents…
The Festival of A Million Fireflies!
1st – 30th June 2013

  • You would not believe your eyes, if a million fireflies lit up the skies
  • They fill the open air & leave teardrops everywhere
  • You’d think me rude, but I would

 

 

 

Firefly flashes are part of a complex system of insect attraction – male fireflies in the air use distinctive patterns of flashing and flying to signal females of their species on the ground. Females then respond with a flash, after a set interval that signals they are of the same species. This display of love in order to find the right mate only makes it luminously beautiful…


Not only will you get to bear witness to this one of a kind natural phenomenon at night, you can also participate in the fun-filled afternoons of eating unlimited ripe mangoes, karvandas and jamuns by the river. For the mighty adventurous ones, feel free to climb the trees and help yourselves.

Or if you prefer, you can just laze under the stars or swim in the river to make your peace with nature. This June, you can choose to experience a confluence of a million natural lights, culture & tradition…
