We did not even find a signboard on our way that directed us to Purushwadi. That's the most remote place we have been to. Once in Purushwadi, you start breathing pure, unadulterated air. The campsite is a 5/10 min walk from the village. If you opt for homestay you get to experience the daily lives of the villagers and get... More

Village : good - T operator - V Bad. For the exorbitant price(Rs 4000 per person per night) they charge they provide zilch. we visited in June last year for the... More

Thank you Gaurav for your encouraging feedback. We understand your concern about the home-stays. As you know that Purushwadi is a tribal hamlet and the houses there are very basic with big families living in each house. This is the reason most of the times, guests couldn't be accommodated along with the families but in the family's spare house/room. More

It was a Family Adventure trip for the Fireflies Festival, with our TWO KIDS. Actual Experience was very nice, however, Grassrouts has charged Terribly with 10.5K for the same, which can be very well managed in 5k. As mentioned in the Itinerary, there were No Snacks with the evening tea. Even in the morning we had asked for the breakfast... More

Took my 2 boys to Purushwadi for a experience of camping, trekking, seeing real village life up close and to see the much promoted visual treat of a million fireflies. First, the great stuff. The drive was a treat, especially the last 1 hour in the hills after crossing Ghoti & Rajur. The landscape of hills, valleys, famlands, waterfalls all... More

Me and 3 of my freinds had heard a lot about grass routes through the website. Firstly they charge a rate of about 3750 per head for the experience which was actually worth 200 Rs . Their was another company which had cancelled the fireflies experience due to the monsoons . Grass routes on the other hand was promoting it... More

I was a last min entry to Fireflies event. The amenities were basic but no complaints as the villagers were warm and welcoming. We were mesmerized by the fireflies and the village guides helped us in reaching the place. I guess the villagers are new to this hosting concept and hence shy. Kudos to Grassroutes for co-ordinating this event and... More

I've been there twice and the experience was amazing! Both times, everyone was super nice, the area and fireflies were beautiful, and the villagers were extremely welcoming. Definitely worth going more than once!

Was a great rustic experience overall. We had dedicated guides who took us to all the village hotspots and ensured we were well taken care of. The accommodation is simple but clean and all the necessary info is stated up front, so the guests are better prepared. The highlights - seeing the fireflies was a magnificent sight and the food...
