Sipi Falls, located in Kapchorwa, just outside Mt. Elgon National Park. The highest of these falls is the most spectacular as it cascades over a 100m cliff. The second, known as Simba, plunges 69m over the entrance to a cave.

Visitors can stand in the cave and enjoy a view of the back of the falls. The third waterfall, also known as Ngasire, gushes over an 87m high ridge.  The Sipi Falls area is the starting point for many hikes up Mt. Elgon.

These hikes around the falls offer stunning views of the Karamoja plains, Lake Kyoga, and the slopes of Mt. Elgon. It is less than an hour’s drive from Mbale town on a paved road to get to the falls
