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 make light.


Prabalgad is situated on northeast side of Panvel, on Mumbai-Pune road. One can see it from express highway a V-Shaped one. The Left one is Kalwantin Durg & right side is Prabalgad. It is located on a plateau very close to Matheran. It was known as Muranjan until it was taken over and renamed by the Maratha forces under Shivaji’s rule.

There is a dense forest on the way till the top of fort Prabal. Historical references indicate that Freedom fighter Umaji Naik made a stay here in 1826.

The fort top commands an excellent view of the surroundings with Kalavantin in the front. Matheran, Chanderi, Shrimallang, Irshal Karnala, Manikgad, etc can be easily identified.
