India’s Western Ghats is one of the world’s best biodiversity hot spots and is considered one of the planet’s finest rain-forests. The BBC reports that this UNESCO World Heritage site has a hidden secret that is only revealed at night. During the monsoon season parts of the forest appear to glow luminous green without the aid of light.

This is caused by bioluminescent fungi that grows on rotting bark. It is not an easy sight to find and has been compared to spotting a tiger in the wild. The conditions need to be exactly right in order to create the glow. The BBC also states that this natural phenomenon can only been seen in a few patches and the best place to stand a chance of witnessing it is “within the states of Maharashtra and Goa.”
