The Pekoe Trail Stage 8

The Pekoe Trail Stage 8 is a 15.85 km hike from Norwood to Bogawantalawa in Sri Lanka. Enjoy the scenic “The Golden Valley of Tea’” as you pass through hills, valleys, lakes and scenic mountain views.

A project jointly funded by the European Union and USAID

The Pekoe Trail is part of the European Union’s 5.7 million Euro support for Sri Lanka’s national tourism strategy.

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) also provided approximately $787,000  in support of the trail.

The Pekoe Trail is designed as a 22 day walk from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya via Ella, Haputale, and Horton Plains.

The Pekoe Trail has diversity in elevation, terrain.
Your hike winds around tea estates and nature reserves. Interacting with local communities on The Pekoe Trail makes it an interesting experience where you can get a better understanding of how their culture and how local people live.

Explore diverse ecosystems ranging from grasslands to tropical forests as you enjoy the  mountain views. The cool air of the Sri Lankan Hill Country is invigorating and a comfortable climate to walk in.

The Island has a rich heritage, culture and history which you will get to understand as  you traverse forests, plains, rural villages, and Tea plantations

GlenMyu Estate and the Pekoe Trail

GlenMyu Estate is located near Haputale and therefore in in good proximity for many parts of the Pekoe Trail. We plan to walk the different stages of the trail ourselves and update this article with our own commentary, videos and photos.

We, of course, think that GlenMyu Estate is a great place to stay in between stages or to recover over two or three days.
