Sipi Falls consist of 3 waterfalls, which flow from different heights. The main drop is the highest and falls from a height of 100m. The waterfalls are near the Kenyan border on the edge of Mount Elgon National Park. Stunning views of the wide plains in the distance and the rich green landscape attract people to spend some time here. The area is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature, or to start a hiking tour to Mount Elgon. A popular activity here is abseiling down the falls, enjoying the spectacular views on the way – if you dare to open your eyes!
The name Sipi is derived from ‘Sep’, a medicinal plant resembling a type of wild banana. The Sipi Falls area is known for growing Arabica coffee. Coffee tours are available, and the profits go towards community projects.
The journey to Sipi Falls will take about 4 ½ hours from Kampala.
