Amabeere ga nyina mwiru caves

The water dripping from the roof of these storied caves is milky white, hence the name Amabeere (‘Breasts’). Most of the rock formations are broken, but it’s a magical experience to walk behind the curtain of rushing water created by an overhead waterfall and past the wall of vines along the adjacent ridge.

Small waterfalls are seen on the nature walk through the mythological caves whose origin story is just as staggering than the stalactites and stalagmites that fill them. Afterwards, the guide can take you to the top of the Lake Saka crater, which has a beautiful view over the Fort Portal plateau and Rwenzori Mountains. The caves are 8 km northwest of Fort Portal, sign-posted 1.5km off the Bundibugyo road. The excursion takes half a day.
