Fireflies Trek and camping at Sandhan Valley is one of the best places to see millions of fireflies at one place in India during pre-monsoon season. Fireflies or lightning bugs make light within their bodies. This process is called bio-luminescence 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 specialised cells in their abdomen that make light.
