About Fireflies:
Fireflies or lightning bugs make light within their bodies. This process is called bioluminescence and is shared by many other organisms, mostly sea-living or marine organisms. Fireflies light up to attract a mate. To do this, the fireflies contain specialized cells in their abdomen that helps to create light.

About Rajmachi:
Rajmachi Village is located in the Lonavla region has access from Lonavla and Karjat. It has two forts which were built by Shivaji Emperor during 17th century. It is a famous spot for trekking. It is a 16 km trekking distance from Lonavala Station. The village of Udhewadi lies on the massive plateau that greets one on getting to Rajmachi. Rajmachi fort is a strategic fort overlooking Borghat which was a historical trade route. Rajmachi peak has two fortified structures - the Shrivardhan fort and Manoranjan fort. 


A little distance down from the village lies a serene and beautiful lake called Uday Sagar Lake. Behind the lake lies an ancient Monolith, a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva.
