3 DAYS SIPI FALLS


Tour overview

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. Well, with  a cooler climate than most of the country Sipi Falls is a nice place to unwind, relax and literally chill out. Since it is situated  on the foothills of Mt. Elgon, Sipi offers a number of alternative activities to the mainstream river activities in and around Jinja. Rob’s Rolling Rock, a local outfit trained by Italian climbers offers a heart racing abseil descent to the side of the main 100m Sipi waterfall as well as climbing on a local crag which has 14 bolted sport routes ranging in difficulty from easy climbs for beginners to some seriously overhanging routes to test the skill of even the best climbers. Other activities include hiking around the local area and visiting the local waterfalls. All the campsites and lodges have guides who can take you for walks for a very reasonable fee. Guided walks are recommended as many of the walks follow local footpaths and at times it can be difficult to find your way. Hikes around the falls offer stunning views of the Karamoja plains, Lake Kyoga, and the slopes of Mt. Elgon. The most trekking  expeditions up Mt. Elgon are based in the Sipi Falls area. The most popular route starts in Budadiri and follows the Sasa trail to the summit and then descends down the Sipi trail back into the Sipi Falls.
