It was a long journey to Kapchorwa to visit Sipi Falls.
Children left Tororo and had to pass through Mbale, Sironko, Bulambuli before reaching Kapchorwa.
They had the chance to view the limestone quarry on the slopes of mountain Elgon, a raw material used in the making of cement .
They also had a chance to visit all the three water falls at Sipi. They are 100 metres, 85 metres and 60 metres high. A bit of natural bath was enjoyed at those water falls.
Climbing the mountain as we visited the falls was also one of the most exciting but challenging activity that children had to undergo. They had to be given walking stick for easy climbing because it was slippery.
They also learnt about the major cash crop grown in the area (Arabica coffee), the name and height of the highest peak of mountain Elgon; that’s Wagagai which is 4321 metres above sea level.
It was very interesting but at the same time very challenging.
