Etina Bhuja Mountain, Mangalore, India
Ettina Bhuja is located 40 km from Dharmasthala at an elevation of 1300 meters. The name Ettina Bhuja means ox's shoulder in local language. The trek traverses through lush tropical evergreen forests and grasslands with moderate difficulty.
The panoramic view from the peak is breathtaking as you see never ending expanse of shola Forests of Western ghats.Scaling the last leg of the peak is a challenge as it passes through narrow ledge and takes about 15 from the campsite. When you watch the red rim of sun going down the horizon gives a new meaning to the daily routine that one watches unfolding every day.
The sound of the wind howling in the light of campfire, the magical dance of the clouds shrouded with mystery under the sparkling sky will make a mark on you that one cannot forget.
