NOTE: There’s a video from my trip at the end of this post and yeah, go ahead and scroll down to watch it 🙂
After I passed out from NYSC in November, I made it a point of duty to visit the tourist centers Â I had never been to before leaving Ekiti State.
So my first port of call was Olumirin Waterfalls in Osun State.
Osun State is close to Ekiti State so it was kind of compulsory that I see it before leaving that part of Nigeria. Hehe.
After browsing and checking google for directions (not that it gave me anyone), I set out just thinking “person nor dey loss for road”. Lol.
And truly, I just never miss my way when I go on trips, some helpers always arise.
I had to take a bus to get to the main Osun town before going to Erin Ijesha and when I got to the town, the buses going to Erin Ijesha weren’t available.
I sat and waited for a bit but it was getting late so I walked down the street… and met a guy who was also going to Erin Ijesha.
We both went back to the park and waited for a bit, and he bought corn and water for me oh 🙂
After a while he suggested we take another route and see me oh, I had no check in my spirit, so I followed him.
He paid for my fare all the way down to Erin Ijesha and never asked for anything, not even my phone number… you guys see why I don’t get scared when I go on trips alone? I don’t meet evil on the way, only divine helpers.
So I finally got to Erin Ijesha and mhen, it was fun!
I met a guy named Tunde and he was just so helpful!
Erin Ijesha waterfalls has 7 steps but I only got to the second one.
Getting to the first one was pretty easy as it had steps that had been constructed but the second one wasn’t so easy… but thankfully, my ajuwaya boots came in handy.
I was so scared like a fish!
Tunde was just telling me to “enter the water nah??”
I did enter the water ohhh.
At the first step there were other girls there with me so no worries but at the second one, I was just so scared of what was in the water on the ground.
So Tunde wanted to enter with me but I forgot that he had to pull his shirt to enter and when he did, I was almost shocked. Lol.
I told him not to worry that I will enter alone ohh. Hehe.
It was fun and cold!
The waterfall is soooo beautiful! Like for real?
Danced around and around and took pictures and finally, it was time to leave as I still had to get to Ekiti that day.
I left at night with my teeth chattering.
And when Genesis called me later on, I was like “I wiiiillll seee seee you tomorrrrow”.
My teeth was chattering!
I would love to revisit again sha.. someday if I’m close to that area, I will go early and climb up to the 7th step.
That will be the day! 🙂
And oh, gatefee is 1000 for adults, I had to add that because I didn’t see it anywhere online.
And please forgive the skeletal gist of this trip, I’m really trying to publish all posts for the year and not carry anyone over but been sooo busy this period.
The chronicles of my October trip will be up soonest.
And oh, to make up for this skeletal post, I and Tunde made a video at the waterfall and you can watch it below or at my Youtube channel here.
Enjoy and catch the fun via the screen 🙂
