Mbale

4.3
Mbale is the type of town which many may pass on their way to the other parts of Uganda, but its low-rise buildings and bustling streets provide a glimpse into local daily life. Markets here overflow with organic food and handmade items, and restaurants provide traditional meals. The nearby Mount Elgon, which rises 4,321 m (14,178 ft) above sea level, and the popular Sipi falls, are often part of the Mbale sightseeing experience. Mbale is in Eastern Region.
