Happy new year fam,it’s a brand new year for us, and it’s also an opportunity to accomplish the things that wasn’t possible for us to do in the previous year.
Have you ever gone hiking before?
Have you ever heard of the wonder in the wilderness before?
Have you visited the OOWU water falls before?
Starting the year in a brand new way, I visited the OOWU water falls . It’s a fall located in ifelodun part of Kwara state in a town called Owa Onire.
This isn’t my first time of going to a waterfall before, I visited the Ayikunugba water falls in osun state and it was nothing compared to OOWU water falls. According to research OOWU water falls is the tallest in west Africa, it is said to be 120m above the water and high at 330 feet down.
I visited the OOWU water fall alongside my friends, it took us two hours before we could get to the town called Owa Onire from ilorin. We had to hire a driver who has an idea about the place and its environs. The driver couldn’t get to the water fall side because of the bad road, we had to park then we started our hiking journey of 7km in a jungle .
It wasn’t as easy as it seem as we were already getting tired because the hike has terrains with high uphills and we were about to give up on seeing the fall,
But as we move closer and closer we began to hear the sound of the fall and we were excited that we were close to the fall.finally we got to the water fall and indeed it was truly a sight to behold, true nature in the middle of nowhere, everywhere was so cool and the only thing we heard was the sound of the water.
I had to quickly capture memories of the fall, some of my friends went directly under the fall and had nice bath, jumping under the water. It was said that if you shout OOWU loudly the water would gosh out the more, we tried it and it was amazing. We enjoyed ourselves as we had our drinks with snacks and then hasten up because we have a 7km long hiking back to where our car was.
It was an adventurous journey and you should visit too
