Fireflies produce a ‘cold light,’ in the shade of yellow, green, or pale red. The lights are visible on their lower abdomens and create a twinkling effect when they light up at night.
Pre-monsoon climate is the ideal period for fireflies and glow-worms for mating and in pursuit of a mate, hundreds of fireflies gather together on a tree displaying their bio-luminescent lights in the dark. Come and experience the magic, as you and your friends camp under the stars, along with these twinkling beauties.
