Sipi Falls.

Mount Elgon region is very scenic and dotted with numerous falls coming from the mountain range. We have chosen to explore the Sipi Falls.

One of the camping grounds where we slept had a wonderful view of the valley at the foot of the mountains. The picnic table is near a vertical cliff of a few hundred metres.

Sipi Falls are in fact a series of three magnificent waterfalls. To see them up close, we did a 3 hours trek on the mountain through some farms.
