The view here is awesome. You need to take your camera along because there are many beautiful sceneries here.

Erin Ijesha Waterfalls

Also known as Olumirin Waterfalls, Erin Ijesha Waterfall is a natural sauna.

It’s conveniently located in Erin Ijesha, Osun State Nigeria.

It’s a site to behold & appreciate the wonders of nature.

According to a study carried out on the site, the water is situated within 7°30’ and 8°45’ North and longitude 4°31’ and 5°East.

Amazingly, when you arrive at the falls, it doesn’t look like anything out of this world until you begin climbing the seven levels of the ascending plains of the waterfalls.

The view at all levels is wonderful and the freshness of the water is energizing. However, the last and seventh level is definitely the most intriguing, well that’s if you ever dared the torturous climb.

For most tourists and fun seekers, climbing up to the third level can best be equated to traipsing the snowy steeply mount Everest. Obviously, being at these different levels and just basking in the invigorating freshness of the falls is an unforgettable experience, but guess what?

The place to be is definitely the seventh level. Why? Not only does it lie at the peak of the falls, it is also hosts a settlement where many of its inhabitants have lived for several years.

Apart from the beautiful site, present at the Erin Ijesha Water fall are also fresh water prawns which belongs to the infraorder Caridea family, Atyidae and genus Caridina (biological terms).

It is commonly said that “the taste of the pudding is in the eating”. So, it wouldn’t be enough to just read this piece, you need to schedule a vacation to Erin-Ijesha waterfalls. I tell you, it’s indeed a sight to behold.
