ERIN IJESHA WATERFALLS

The day started off really well even though departure was delayed by one hour fifty minutes. We left Lagos by bus at 8:50 AM and arrived at Erin Ijesha at 1:50 PM.

Location: Osun State, Nigeria

Language: Yoruba

Erin Ijesha waterfalls (also referred to as Olumirin waterfalls) is another wonderful work of nature.Some say it was discovered by a hunter while others say it was discovered by one of the daughters of Oduduwa, whoever did THANK YOU 🙂 The waterfall has seven stages . I got to the second stage which has the most water activity and has approximately 300 steps. Most of it was just rocks paths and slopes.To get to the waterfall at the second stage we had to hold on to branches and anything we could get a hold on and practically slide or crawl down. I heard my friend Nedu telling someone  ” the only way  to go about it is to get on all fours and crawl like a little animal“.

I’ll let the pictures tell the rest of the story.

I had just recovered from malaria a day before the trip, in fact I thought i would miss the trip. So i made up my mind that i wasn’t going to get wet. WHAT A JOKE! As soon as i started heading toward the bus so we could leave, it started raining.I was drenched.

Social Prefect Tours made sure we had an amazing time with a sense of security. The team was so organized, at some point I began to wonder if they would make any money from the trip. Truly amazing experience. The next day we went to Ile Ife,details in my next post.

Then God said, “Let the waters beneath the sky flow together into one place, so dry ground may appear.” And that is what happened.God called the dry ground “land” and the waters “seas.” And God saw that it was good.Genesis 1:9-10 New Living Translation

Just by his spoken word, AWESOME!
