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

It was one one the most amazing places i have been to. The fireflies just took my breath away, it was something like never seen before. I would recommend it to everybody who wants to see the miracles of nature.

When I contacted Grassroute for the first time, I specifically asked when is a good time to go. I even made a phone call to confirm about the fireflies and I mentioned that I've seen a few thousand fireflies before and I'd like to go when there are a million fireflies. I was given a specific week and I changed... More

The Fireflies Experience at Purushwadi is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will just mesmerize you. Reaching the location can be a little difficult as the shared jeeps from Karjat station are packed (we traveled 17 people in one tiny jeep). Tip: If you are a big group, ask the Grassroutes people to organise a jeep for you from Karjat to Purushwadi.... More
