Important Points to note regarding Fireflies Festival Rajmachi 2024

PLEASE DO NOT BOOK THIS EVENT WITHOUT READING AND UNDERSTANDING THIS
 

Transport:
In case it rains heavily Jeep will drop till the nearest motorable point on the road. The participant will have to walk 3-6 km to reach the base village. 

Traveling by Own vehicle:
Ideally you are supposed to meet the group at Della Adventures in Lonavla at the specified time in itinerary and proceed to the trek along with the trek leader and other participants to avoid any inconvenience. You may choose to reach the trek location directly but keep in mind the trek location is in remote area and network is pretty bad. You may not be able to contact us on phone or we may not be able to contact you on phone. If you are hiring a driver or driving the vehicle yourself, in either case every individual person coming to the event has to be registered as a participant and has to pay the charges. If you do not wish to pay for your driver you can ask him to drop you and then come back to pick you up next day.

Trek Expert's Suggestion:
The road from lonavla to the base village Udhewadi of Rajmachi Fort is in extreme bad condition. The driver needs to be skilled in off-road driving to be able to reach Rajmachi. Unless you have suitable vehicle that can reach the village without getting damaged, you should avoid considering this option. Local Jeeps can be hired from Lonavla station to reach Rajmachi.

Beware: 
Rajmachi is one of the most famous and hence most OVERCROWDED fireflies location in India. With barely a handful of resources available in the village one needs to adjust as per situation. The village road starting from expressway is in extremely bad condition and cars with low ground clearance should be avoided. If the driver is not skilled in off-roading he might break the car's. No, I not referring to break-down, I mean physically the car might break by banging on rocks.

Stay:
The stay for this event will be at village homestay. This group homestay at a village house comprises of a large hall for the group to rest at night. Each participant needs to carry a mat/sleeping-bag to rest upon. Please remember this is a extremely basic shelter in village home. 

The main focus of this event is watching "Fireflies" and this is not a Camping focused event. 

Situation: This is specifically a Fireflies-focused event, and due to weather conditions, all other things need to be handled as per the best-suited option basis. The event schedule, itinerary, group composition, and all operational aspects are subject to change without prior notice. In these uncertain times, we will try to do our best to get things rolling but unavoidable circumstances may impact the operations. Please Do-Not book this event if you are not comfortable with the given situation, uncertainty aspects, stay options and travel options explained above. 

Food
During fireflies festival is sourced from local "Adivasi" villagers, this is basic home cooked food and is prepared by the villagers in the region. In past several years people have loved this food. But since lockdown got over, the expectations of people have become unreal and food is still that same authentic village food. Do not book this event if food is your priority. Alternatively please carry packaged food along with you if you are grumpy about food.

Washroom:
The washroom is available within a walking distance of 2 min.

IMPORTANT:
Before booking the event, Please make sure you are physically fit to complete the event and have gone through all the Details, Disclaimer, and FAQ / Important Points to note.

Q: Are Kids allowed to participate in Rajmachi Fireflies Festival? 

Ans. Yes Kids are allowed. Age does not matter, It purely depends on how fit the kids are and how they have been raised in terms of adaptability to nature. One of my 3-year-old nieces can do all the Fireflies events at all the locations easily, but on the other hand one of my 16-year-old cousin can't even dare to think of going to any of the events listed on our website. His parents have raised him in such a way that now he is incapable of being in nature. This may sound harsh, but its ground reality.

A. Mischief Treks has a track record of making our trekking and camping events extremely safe for girls. Normally 60 to 70 percent of our participants are females. 

Q: Are pets allowed in Fireflies Festival?

A. We dont mind, but the forest stray dogs cause trouble for all other participants when they sense presence of any outsider animal in their territory. If this happens we will have to ask the pet to be taken away. Hence we highly recommend not bringing any pets into any forest region including Fireflies Festival. 

Q. Are any discounts or coupon codes available?

A. Mischief Treks is known to be one of the rare few organizers who do not try to manipulate people using marketing tricks like unreasonably increasing charges and then providing offers and discounts to make people feel as if they have got best deal. The concept of Group-discounts end up making  solo participants pay more and hence we do not support it. We at mischief Trek believe in honest and transparent charges for one and all. 

Q: How long can we watch fireflies?

A. We at Mischief Treks make sure everyone gets enough time at the spot where fireflies are visible in huge number. However, if you are craving an extended firefly experience, feel free to stay back at the spot as long as you like. You can join back with the group once you are done.

You can reach and leave as per your choice. The charges for participation will be the same for all participants. Skipping part of event will not qualify for special rates or discounts.

Q: Which locations are available for booking Fireflies Festival 2024?

A. Out of the several locations for fireflies festival we have handpicked few best ones as mentioned below.
Best Fireflies Festival Camping Locations in Maharashtra

Q: What are the major problems faced by organizers during Fireflies Festival? 

A. The Fireflies festival happens during end of may till mid June, and this is the worst time to go for overnight stay at such locations, But as the fireflies are visible only in this season the only thing we can rely upon is having shelter at village homes or tents. Tents are completely unreliable in this region due to heavy wind possibilities. Hence if the participants haven't read and understood the event details mentioned on this page, they might end up having unrealistic expectations from the organizers or they may expect this to be like the regular camping events. For example, at fireflies events food will be pretty basic, stay arrangement will be very basic, bonfire cant be done as smoke harms fireflies. Hence during enquiry phase we insist and almost force people to read-and-understand all aspects of Fireflies events Before-Booking. Yet, some people just scroll through and ignore the Important Points, Terms, FAQ section and About-Us section. We cant guess what you already know and what you don't. So, we insist that you need to at least once reading event details to avoid any omissions. Even after all the efforts to educate the participants, some of them still choose to be not aware of the facts and their unrealistic expectation causes lot of pain to the organizers. 

Q: Can someone call me and read out the details on this page?

A. We at Mischief Treks have a strict condition, each participant who wishes to join our group needs to be aware of all the aspects of the event. Hence we have mentioned the details with utmost clarity and transparency on this page. We will not make phone calls to read out information that is readily available this page. We strongly urge you to refer to the provided resources before requesting redundant assistance. We do not verbally provide details on phone as it usually creates a lot of "Misunderstanding" and "Miscommunication". If something mentioned on this page is confusing, you can get clarity on chat by clicking on WhatsApp icon on your screen, we shall revert with written clarification to all the queries. To discuss things that are "Not" mentioned on this page we can arrange a callback from one of our Trek Leaders.

Q: What if my application to join is disapproved due to my behavior?

A. Its important to understand, if you are expelled or if you try to force yourself on us, your application will be rejected based on your unacceptable behavior. No refunds are provided in such case of expulsion or disapproval of joining.

Detailed information

Rajmachi Fireflies Festival - Update 

The best time to watch fireflies in Maharashtra, India is during pre-monsoon phase i.e. Starting from third week of the month of May to third week of June. 

Personal experience: 

According to the Trek-Leader Kuldip Rathore, last week of the month of May 2024 and the first two weeks of the month of June 2024 are going to be the best time for sighting maximum number of fireflies. He also suggests that this year maximum number of fireflies will be witnessed at Bhandardara Fireflies Festival, Karjat Fireflies Festival, Rajmachi Fireflies festival, AquaNest Igatpuri Fireflies Festival, and Kothaligad Fireflies Festival. Amongst these locations AquaNest and Bhandardara campsites of Mischief Treks will have maximum number of fireflies.

The Glowing Mystery: Did you think why do these creatures illuminate the night? Well, It's all about romance and warning. Fireflies use their radiant glow to attract potential mates while simultaneously sending a message to predators who often are afraid of fire and illuminating objects. 

The Threat of Decline: Loss of Habitat, increasing light pollution, and use of pesticides by humans pose significant threats to the firefly population in India. With only a handful of species remaining, the need for conservation efforts has become a matter of urgency. These fireflies are safe for humans and they do not bite.

Myths and Facts about Fireflies and Rain correlation

Since 2021, we observed that lot of people are believing lot of Copy-Paste based websites spreading incorrect information about the correlation between rains and Fireflies, hence we would like to take this opportunity to express our experience and things we practically learn in past 12 years. Rain can have both positive and negative effects on fireflies in India. For details click here - > Myths and Facts about Fireflies and Rain correlation

Beware of "Chapri" groups on Instagram, luring people using cheap-tricks like discounts or offers, they generally use stolen or without-permission reposted images/videos/text content.
   
Always research about "Compatibility" and "Category" of the trek group you plan to join. After all, you will be spending entire duration at night in company of the group You choose. 

As per our experience "People often opt for groups that match their mindset -OR- sometimes get carried away by cheap manipulative marketing."

Commitment towards Fireflies and our Pledge: 

The Fireflies are very sensitive to changes in their environment, and smoke can be particularly harmful to them. We do not indulge or support unnecessary activities that cause smoke, eg. Campfire, Bonfire, Barbeque (BBQ) and any other activity related to smoke. By being responsible and respectful, we can help protect these amazing insects and ensure that they continue to thrive for generations to come. We pledge to continue protecting the interests of fireflies.

Appeal to Public:  Please take a step forward and spread the awareness about being responsible and help eradicate activities related to pollutants like Fire, Smoke, and Lights causing harm to Fireflies.
