I was there back in 2013, during my youth service year.

OP you forgot to mention one phenomenon that is inexplicable, whenever one shouts out loud the pressure of the water wall increases apparently. Locals said the shout is a way of honoring the deity in charge of the place and in response the deity causes a surge in water flow as a gesture of acceptance of the honor. I witnessed this phenomenon first hand, no fable.

Beauty of our universe, nothing mystery or mysterious about it. Check Niagara Fall !

If not because Nigeria is too backward and doesn't know how to take advantage of big and small beauties - tourism, restaurants, hotels would have been built around the place.

If you are a tourist and you are yet to visit Arinta Waterfalls, then you are missing a great deal. Arinta Waterfalls is one of the finest tourist destination in Nigeria.

The road that leads to the fall passes through the Ikogosi Tourist Center. Located at Ipole Iloro, Ekiti State it is a few minutes to Ikogosi Warm Spring. From Ado Ekiti the capital city.

Tourists could feel the cold effect of this fall from about 10 meters away. Arinta Waterfalls consist of seven different cascades. Everyone that goes to Arinta Waterfalls gets to the first layer. To go further will now depend on every visitor’s capability to get to other cascades. Each cascades has unique features.

The water from the fall is believed to have medicinal value. It is said that it has the power to cure skin diseases. However, the waterfall is not regarded as a deity or worshipped.

There is a cobblestone of about 25cm in diameter in one of the seven cascades of the waterfall. It is called the "wonderful stone".
It is said that no one on earth can lift the stone. Since Arinta Waterfalls has been known, nobody till today has been able to lift the stone. This stone is believed to be a rare mystery.

The community harbouring the waterfalls, Ipole Iloro is a rural settlement surrounded by undulating mountains, thick evergreen forest and flowing rivers.

Arinta Waterfalls is a place for relaxation, picnic, mountain climbing, bush trails, hiking and many more.

It is a wonderful sight to behold.

The number one PROBLEM in traveling to this type of places in Nigeria is SECURITY and AREA BOYS.

I bet no one knows that the intensity of the waterfall is proportional to the sound around it, was there in 2012 with colleagues from school, 40 of us, we screamed so loud, guess what, the waterfall intensity increased immediately, we almost ran out. It was fun, an unforgettable experience.
It’s so true,was there too with friends years back

I've been there before. The place is beautiful but very scary with just a single security guard that is very old. The road leading there is also very lonely and very steep so you might want to be careful driving down as its dangerous. Other than that its lovely
