Sipi Falls is a series of three waterfalls in Eastern Uganda in the district of Kapchorwa, northeast of Sironko and Mbale. The waterfalls lie on the edge of Mount Elgon National Park near the Kenyan border and the area is often the starting point for hikes up Mt. Elgon.
The sipi falls local guide welcomes you and you begin your interesting hike and abseiling adventures. There is a route which starts in Budadiri and follows the Sasa trail to the summit and then descends down the Sipi trail back into the Sipi falls. Hikes around the falls offer fantastic views of the Karamoja plains, Lake Kyoga, and the slopes of Mt. Elgon.
Visiting these waterfalls is a 7km hike that is full of steep ascents and descents, ladders, and farms. The third Sipi Falls is steep and muddy. It offers stunning views of cultivated western slopes of mountain Elgon. It is 85m tall, given the height, the vigor of its flow spews mist which as a result faint rainbows are seen from the partial sunlight that breaks through the over cast skies. After the hike, head to your lodge of preference for relaxation, dinner and overnight.
