Elgon can be climbed at any time of the year, though the dry season (June-August and December-March ). The most favorable months are November and December given the fact that it is when the highland flowers are in bloom. Traditionally, the most popular destination on the Mt. Elgon is the Sipi Falls where the Sipi River rises on the upper slopes of Mt. Elgon before cascading down the foothill over km to form a series of four pretty waterfalls culminating in a 99 m drop at an altitude of 1,775 m outside the small trading center of Sipi. The Sipi are 60 km from Mbale by Road.
