The classical Sierpinski Gasket defined on the equilateral triangle is a typical example of fractals. Sierpinski-like triangles can also be constructed on isosceles or scalene triangles. An explicit formula for the intrinsic metric on the classical Sierpinski Gasket via code representation of its points is given. The aim of this paper is to generalize this formula to the Sierpinski-like triangles. We also investigate geometrical properties of these triangles with respect to the intrinsic metric. Moreover, we describe certain properties of the classical Sierpinski gasket which are not shared by all of its analogues.
