The Erin-Ijesha Water Fall is a great work of nature located in a small village in Osun State. Here we discover the serenity and beauty of nature. With seven levels of fall and a rise of 40 meters, the ascension is adventurous and the water refreshing. The people of Erin-Ijesha believe that the water exudes from a big pot located at the top of the ridge. That is one big pot, isn’t it?
