Although a preferred destination for those seeking tourist attractions in Western Uganda, Kabale is a place to stay and explore from rather than offering tourist attractions in its own right. (Oh, and when you stay be prepared for some chilly nights and frequent (heavy) rainfalls given its height.) One of the most popular attractions is undoubtedly Lake Bunyonyi, a lake created millions of years ago when lava blocked the River Kabaga creating twenty nine island some of which are settled. It is also home to the infamous Punishment Island where unmarried pregnant girls were marooned and left to die. Gorilla trekking is also available although expensive.
