Things to remember:
The gentle and rhythmic flicker of these fireflies are actually the bugs communicating, to attract the opposite sex and respond. When you are visiting these places to watch them in action, be mindful about not disturbing their habitat.
Fireflies do not bite, so if they come and sit on you don't kill them. Please do not apply any insect repellent because that might bother these fireflies, due to the strong smell. Also, please make sure to carry your trash back with you from the mountains ✌️
Things to carry:
- Lots of water as most of the stalls, homestays etc. are closed at night.
- Carry your own snacks as it can turn out to be a pretty long night.
- Torch light for the trek. Kindly don't use flash on the fireflies, it causes a lot of disturbance to their habitat.
- Wear comfortable shoes to be able to trek.
