The 2 Days Sipi Falls Adventure : takes you to the Eastern region of Uganda in Kapchorwa district. While here, you will visit the beautiful sceneries of 3 waterfalls. This is generally Elgon’s main tourist focus and lies on the mountain’s northeastern foot slopes, only 45km from Mbale Town.
A series of three waterfalls is formed by the Sipi River as it cascades downhill from the upper slopes of Mount Elgon into the Kyoga Basin. As a matter of fact, Sipi is a very peaceful and pretty spot. Besides, it makes the most agreeable base for gentle day walks in the surrounding hills which offer spectacular views to the lowlands.

The most popular walking trail is only 20 minutes in each direction which leads from behind the post office in Sipi trading centre to the base of the main waterfall. You can also choose to continue along this trail for another 20 to 30 minutes to reach a cluster of caves on the cliff above the river.
