My Visit To Ikogosi Cold And Warm Water Spring(with Pictures) by Bbsharon(f): 8:54pm On Jul 24
Oh, well well. Long time no post here wink.
Well, life happened and I lost my blog accessibility somehow, somehow. lipsrsealed

But here we go: smiley

I visited this site in February with some few friends.

The Beautiful Ikogosi spring, located in Ekiti west local government area of Ekiti state, Nigeria.

Easily accessed either through Efon Alaye-Ipole Iloro road or from the city centre and state capital, Ado-Ekiti.

The Ikogosi Warm Spring, unarguably one of the most visited tourist destination in the country unique features comes from it's naturally occurring nature's bliss, of warm and cold spring flowing side by side to form a confluence, with each still maintaining its thermal properties.

This merging of warm and cold water is the first of its kind in the world.

Now, that’s unique.�
.
According to myth the people believe the warm and cold water were the wives of a man, who after much rivalry and fights turned into springs through magical means.

The warm water became the troublesome wife while the cold water became the gentle and peace loving wife.

Same goes for the tale of two trees growing from the same source at the meeting point of the springs. While the rough looking one is the troublesome wife the smooth one is the peaceful wife.

A giant looking tree then stands alone representing the husband of the women. The people believe, despite these women's differences they can still co-exist and live peacefully only because they still have great respect for their husband.

However in 1952, the spring was brought to limelight by Rev. John S. McGee after he had heard magical tales of it’s existence from the Ikogosi people. He later went on to put the place in good use, building camps and places for relaxation.

And by December 22, 1973, a guest house was opened by the government to receive visitors in the camp. The resort have experienced good face-lift ever since then from the state government but more can still be done especially the trails.

The resort now houses a bar, swimming pool, trail walk(not too safe) and a beautiful garden.

Best time to visit to have that serene peaceful feeling happens to be between February-April, but to have that fun and exciting feeling, public holidays would be better.

Gate fee stands at 500Naira if you are paying as an individual but comes cheaper in group. But then you get to skip that if you would be lodging at the resor

A plus for you...you can't be in Ekiti and not eat pounded yam you know. So, you ensure you ask around for a good restaurant to get that. Preferably in Ado-Ekiti. wink

In all we still had our fun � ��


For now I would keep updating on my Instagram page and also here till I recover my blog.... smiley

How much would it cost to lodge at the resort? I'm always scared of visiting such places because it's Nigeria, anything can happen to you.

The way Africans quickly associate things they can't understand or comprehend to spiritual/metaphysical power, is unbelievable
