Hey guys! So I finally left my house on a weekend to somewhere that wasn’t my office. I got a flier last week when I was at the university cafeteria – one that said that the science student’s association were having their annual science week and part of the programmes listed included a trip to Erin Ijesha Waterfalls in Osun state.
Being the lover of nature that I am, I joined one of the lecturers assigned to go there and I had fun. The Erin Ijesha Waterfalls is in Osun state as I said earlier and we got to climb to reach the falls. That may be the highest I’ll ever climb in my life. With the place being a tourist attraction and all, I was expecting a better feel for the whole thing. The road leading to the site was very bad and the place itself didn’t look welcoming from the entrance.
We were charged N500 per head and I have to ask: where does all the money go to?
There was also no tour guide and all, so I don’t see any staff they’re employing apart from the gatekeeper/sales person. Anyway, enjoy the pictures (and my birthday is on Friday – look at my wishlist here)
Made three short videos for Instagram. You can follow me here to see them
Now if you have to go to Erin Ijesha, ensure you eat before going and take water with you when climbing – at least two bottles and if you can’t climb, just balance and feel the chilled water rushing from the falls.
