Endebess is one of the towns nearest to Mount Elgon, and features accommodation for those interested in hiking in the national park; the town is 4 kilometers from the park's Chorlim Gate.[1]

Endebess was among many areas hit by post-election violence in early 2008,[2][3] and hosted a camp for internally displaced persons after the violence subsided.[4][5]
