Located in Erin-Ijesha, the Erin-Ijesha Waterfalls (also known as Olumirin Waterfalls) safely tucked away in Oriade Local Government area of Osun State, Nigeria is a beauty to behold.
Though conflicting reports say the waterfalls was discovered by some hunters in 1140 AD, another revealed it was discovered by one of the daughters of Oduduwa in 1140 AD, whatever the case this stunning work of nature is one to explore.

You're greeted by torrential water splashing on uneven rocky surfaces as you attempt to climb past the water falling and easily flowing down the rocks. The waterfall features 7 floors on which a village called 'Abake' is reportedly located on!
Climbing through the rocks are some sort of adventure as it gets strenuous by the second floor; at this point the 'steps' created for the first floor ends so you'd have to make you way around uneven rocky surfaces, carefully finding their way around the surface without tripping making it even more adventurous but certainly not for the faint hearted!

As you progress on the steps, the water come down even more beautiful, leaving you in awe of nature (if you stop on the first step you won't get as beautiful a look as climbing but then at your discretion).
There's not a dull moment at the waterfall as there are always tourists exploring the wonder that is the place. People say no one has ever gotten to the 7th floor though!
When next you're in Osun State and looking to explore nature, Erin Ijesha Waterfalls is one to visit.
