In addition to the Pekoe Trail, there are other notable long-distance hiking trails in Sri Lanka. Some of these include the Knuckles Mountain Range Trek, which takes hikers through a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offers panoramic views of the surrounding hills and valleys. Another popular trail is the Peak Wilderness Sanctuary, where hikers can climb Adam's Peak, a sacred mountain with a footprint-shaped depression believed to be the mark of Buddha, Lord Shiva, or Adam, depending on different religious beliefs.
These long-distance hiking trails in Sri Lanka provide opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts to immerse themselves in the country's natural beauty and explore its diverse landscapes.
