Sipi Falls


Sipi falls is a series of three waterfalls in Eastern Uganda in the Kapchorwa district. The waterfalls lie on the edge of Mount Elgon National park near the Kenyan boarder. Hikes around the falls offer stunning views of the Karamoja plains, Lake Kyoga and the slopes of Mt. Elgon. The Sipi River is named after the ‘Sep’, a plant indigenous to the banks of the River. Resembling a type of wild banana, Sep is a medicinal plant; the translucent green frond with a bolt of crimson rib is used for treating measles and fever.
