The eastern part of Uganda is rather flat. But close to the border with Kenya, Mount Elgon massif rises like a wall, on which flanks is located the village of Sipi. The area offers stunning views of Mount Elgon, of the seemingly endless surrounding plains, some sharp cliffs, many terraced hills, and of course the chief attraction: the waterfalls. The three main falls (around 95, 70 and 80 m drops) can all be taken in from the southernmost point in Sipi, but each one should be viewed up close for they all offer something unique, be it a gorgeous backdrop, a background cave or lush vegetation. A visit to all of them can be done in a two to four hour walk involving some downhill sliding in muddy trails (if in rainy conditions), caves, coffee plantations, friendly people and incredible landscape in every direction. A must-see in Uganda.
