Good view and great work of nature. Only God formed those hills. The Area only tells story of the ancient times.

For our visit to Idanre we had slept in akure the night before and made it a day trip . The drive heading up to Idanre already revealed how breathtaking and beautiful the landscape is. There is a tourist center at the base where you purchase your tickets. Tickets were at a 1000 per person and you give whatever you agree with your tourguide as an appreciation for the tour.

With the help of our tour guide Richard we made it up the 682 steps to the peak. When accessing the great steps that lead to the peak you will come across five resting and viewpoints.

On the top you can explore the following the old court at Odeja since 1906, Oshokogbe stone site used for the Apon festival back in the days, Omi Apaara the thunder stream, Igboore primary school from 1896, the tourist charlets from 1954, Omi Arun, Ancient palace and courtyard, Chief Lorin house, Asurin quarters and the wonderful rock.

In total we spent three hours exploring idanre without long breaks so if you wanted long breaks you may need more time

Idanre hills is located in Ondo state.
Listening to the history of this historical beauty from our tour guide made the hike worth it.
The view at the top is magnificent.

Idanre Hill is a beautiful hill with 682 steps from the ground. It’s not an easy climb, but it’s totally worth the Journey.
There are about 5 huts on the way up the hill.
But only the first is properly set up and has a bar with music blaring.
After the steps, you basically maneuver your way to the top. A mostly flat bed.
From the top you can see the entire Idanre town.
The tour guide told me Idanre means ‘It is a Miracle’.
I was breathless by the time I reached the third hut and thereafter, got my groove on. There were kids on an excursion too; that’s a regular sight during holidays. There’s a small settlement on the other side of the hill, no longer inhabited but has a story.
You can go with a bottle of water in hand.
The guides are friendly and the place is very safe. I would go there again and again.

I enjoyed the sight seeing and hill climbing. The taste of the delicacies served at idanre was yummy. I had issues with their services and hotels cos it was kinda poor. Good place to be anyways
