Hiking Sipi Falls

We took a trip about an hour east of Soroti to do some hiking. We went to visit Sipi Falls.

First stop, lunch! We ate some beans and chapati at the Mise Cave Restaurant.

Restaurant where we ate lunch

This is the first real tourist thing I've done since arriving and it was very interesting to see the difference in this area from Soroti, which has no tourism at all. Every where we went we were asked for money. Everyplace that could have a gate and an entrance fee, had one. When we returned, someone had washed the car and asked for money.

Paying the entrance fee

The falls themselves and the hike was very nice, though I am so out of shape that the hike up was not quite as pleasent as the hike down. I don't think I'm quite ready to climb Mt Kilimanjaro yet.

The trail as we began the hike, we hiked to the bottom of the falls, about a half hour down (and about 45 minutes up).
