What is the Pekoe Trail?

 Sri Lanka’s Pekoe Trail, a new hiking trail that leads to the heart of the hill country.

It commences in Kandy and makes its way to Nuwara Eliya, passing through Haputale, Hatton and Ella.

We are excited at GlenMyu Estate.

At GlenMyu Estate, we are quite excited about the award for Best Wider World Tourism Project. We expect this will bring more people to this fantastic Island and this part of the country. 

Sri Lanka has had its challenges over the last few years and hopefully, with publicity like this, more tourists will come and experience what this paradise island has to offer.

Perhaps the Pekoe Trail will be on a bucket list in future!
