If you are in decent shape and can do one hike in boulder, trekking the Hanuman Betta trail is a good option. You will witness the high hilly environment, thick old-growth forest, small cave, incredible rock formations that have made Boulder famous and great views of the civilization nearby. Its a little over 5 kms from end to end and can be completed in four to five hours.
Located 90 kms from Bangalore, Hanuman Betta is a Boulder icon and is relatively steep in the most sections, criss-crossing the switchbacking trail as you climb. It�s a nice, steady, strenuous climb without too many technical obstacles. The trek will take you in and out of the boulders crossing a small cave which is halfway across, continuing through the tree line of the hill opening up frequently for spectacular views of the nearby hills. A unique side view of Hanuman Betta can be seen on the lower stretches of the hike. After about 2.2 kms and 3500 ft of elevation, you will reach the Hanuman Betta summit area which promises 360 degree of beautiful panoramic view.
