We did a weekend in July, farming at Dehna with Grassroutes. Young kids and adults, we were a big group of 30. The stay was in the village homes and we were split into groups of 5s for sleeping and eating. It is the closest you can get to a rural stay...the monsoons add to the magic of the place.The... More

Purushwadi, is a lovely place to visit, ofcourse taking care of the right timing. We visited a lil before the showers and hence saw a limited variety of fireflies. The raw experiences, the stay in tents and the simplicity the place has to offer is a change we need often. I recommend this to all nature lovers, especially with children... More

One beautiful experience bringing us close to Nature. The star gazing to the food and the walk down the road to spot fireflies was amazing. Puranpoli and aamti topped the food list. The village activites were fun on the next day. Kudos to the Grassroutes team! :)

Gear yourself for coming back with a large chunk of happiness and peace of mind. Fireflies, 1000s of them glowing and seducing you too, experience of a lifetime. A holiday one usually dreams about happens here, Sumantai with her melt in the mouth puran polis, Raju our guide with his knowledge of flora and fauna made our experience unique.

I travelled solo for two days, stayed at a local's house, ate traditional marathi food prepared by another local, ate mangoes and jaamuns straight off the trees, celebrated the night with thousands of fireflies, connected with myself in the calm and peace of the village, visited the school, played with the kids, felt the rain, smelt the freshness of the...

Loved the location, not just for fireflies but overall experience. The service made me feel home especially our guide- Avinash, who was very humble and helpful. Looking for more such memories in future.

A perfect, non-touristy weekend getaway from crowded Bombay. The firefly experience is surreal. Locals take great care of you and the facilities are quite good. Just recommend that you do this on a weekday and not a weekend as there are too many people which can be painful when you want to have a quiet experience of the Fireflies in... More

The fireflies displays,the villagers,tent location excellent Grassroute, no points.The charges are exorbitant compared to the services.The worst part was they exploit the poor villagers,mere hypocrisy.

We stay at Purushwadi camp site for one night in June 2015. Had one of the most memorable trips watching thousands of fireflies in pitch darkness. The campsite is well organized with the most basic amenities. The organizing team was very courteous and took the time to make us comfortable. Experience of eating with villagers in their homes was pleasurable.... More
