Dhyas Sahyadri Night Trek to Rajmachi

June 22 @ 10:00 pm - June 23 @ 8:00 pm UTC+5.5


Hello सह्याद्री lovers!!!
ध्यास सह्याद्री presents “Night trek to Rajmachi”⛰

If you want to see the dazzling fireflies in the dark, then come for the trek to Rajmachi Fort. This trek is most spectacular in weeks preceding the monsoon when tiny insects come out of a long slumber for mating season. Fireflies exhibit bioluminescence, a phenomenon which makes them glow in the dark to attract a mate.

About Rajmachi:
Rajmachi Fort has two stronghold forts, Shrivardhan and Manaranjan. Visible from Mumbai Pune Expressway on the right-hand side of Borghat. It is a famous spot for trekking. Rajmachi Fort is 16 km trekking distance from Lonavala there are many routes to reach Rajmachi Fort. We will be camping at Udhewadi Village located below the two Bale Killa. Surrounded by huge waterfalls during monsoon you can view the beautiful Kataldhar Waterfall from Shrivardhan Fort. Rajmachi Fort has many caves used by trekkers for night halt. Pre-monsoon the forest around the forts is glowing with Fireflies at night. You can also trek towards Kondane Caves during monsoon and enjoy the beautiful caves and waterfall. Rajmachi Fort is located strategically overlooking Borghat a historical trade route.
