VRangers Blinky Firefiles - Bhorgiri to Bhimashankar Trek (B2B) on 19th to 20th May 2018.

Bhorgiri village is located near Pune-Khed region situated 54km away from Rajgurunagar. The village is surrounded by mountains. The mountain on the backside of Bhorgiri village has two caves which are easily visible from the village. Even on fort there is a temple of “God Koteshwar”. The temple is really beautiful and one can get superb view of the region from this location and from top of hill you can see the Bhimashankar Jungle.

How Fireflies Lights?
Fireflies produce light due to a biochemical reaction that takes place in their body, specifically, their light organ which is usually in their lower abdomen. Through this reaction, they convert chemical energy into light energy.
The best part about fireflies is that their light is a cold light, i.e. unlike a bulb, it doesn’t give off heat. Thus, if a firefly sat on your palm, you can experience the magic and not feel the sting.

Bhorgiri to Bhimashankar (B2B) Range trek is an awesome jungle area route. Trek route is through dense jungle but now villager made good route to explore the way.

Cost Not Included: - Insurance and any other things which is not mention above.

About: The top of the fort is created by the geological structure known as a dyke and the final stage on the rock mass is very fascinating. Dykes in Sahyadri are probably representation of fracture into which ancient magma was injected. Non resistant rock got eroded away and the one which were more resistant have appeared as great walls.

Bhairavgad happens to be only fort built on a dyke making it a must see wonder for trekkers. This fort must have been very important as it holds very strategic location looking on the ghat and paths to Mahali and junnar forts range. The exact origin of fort is not known but the style indicates that the fort dates back to Bhoj dynasty. Carved steps are the study point for this hill fort. Water tank at east side is also subject of study, how to preserve the water which is draining from the hill.
