About Ettinabhuja

Ettina Bhuja (literally translates to Ox's Shoulder, in Kannada), is located close to the temple town of Dharmasthala. Byrapura village in Mudigere range of Chickmagalur district to be exact. About 250km from Bangalore, it makes for a good weekend trip away from the hustle and bustle of the city. 

Although it’s not a popular trail among trekkers, Ettina Bhuja offers scenic landscapes in its short 3 hours, around 5km round-trip trek. At about 1300m altitude, this trail is perfect for beginners. The trekking usually starts at 6 AM and no later than 3 PM on any given day.

It features a mosaic of grassland and forest patches in undulating terrain. One can find bamboo and cane plantations on the way to the top. If lucky, one might even sight sambar deer. Trek along this pleasant terrain to the sound of chirping birds in the lap of nature.

Once you reach the top which looks like the hump of an ox, feast yourself to panoramic views of dense green forests especially during monsoons.
