Ikogosi Warm/Cold Water Spring

ikogosi3

Ikogosi is a small quiet town in Ekiti West Local Government area of Ekiti State, which has been catapulted to national and international limelight because of the presence of warm and cold springs flowing side by side in the town. The spring is a source of life for the people of the town. There are many mysterious tales on the source of the springs.

One being that the springs were wives of the same husband, whom after much rivalry and fighting, were turned into water springs; one, the fiery-ill tempered wife as the warm spring, and the cool tempered wife as the cold spring, whereas the surrounding hilly areas became the husband. Another myth says a powerful hunter, who was hunting for animals in the bush, discovered the warm spring.

After the discovery, the people of the town discovered that the warm water was curative, curing many diseases among them. Hence, the people started to worship the water. This was the situation until the 1960s when the late Nigerian educator and author, Tai Solarin heard about the spring and brought his students to the place for excursion.

The volume of water coming from the springs remains constant and warm from morning to evening. A strong steam is noticed when one pays a visit to the warm spring source early in the morning.

During the Harmattan period (a dry period which occurs usually from November to late March, including the period of dry, dusty Harmattan winds in December), a fog is also noticed at the source of the spring.

The warm and cold springs of Ikogosi flow parallel and meet somewhere down to form a confluence, with each maintaining its thermal quality. This is the first of such an occurrence in the world.

The whole environment of the area is left untouched by the government for eco-tourism appeal, while the source of the warm springs have been provided a canopy so that tourists and visitors can relax underneath. The Ikogosi warm spring, according to tourism experts, is one of eight of such warm springs discovered in the world.

Adding to the natural beauty, there is a tree and a palm growing from the same source at the meeting point area of the warm and cold springs. Another attraction of the Ikogosi Warm Spring is that it is believed to be curative. Therapeutic powers have been reputed regarding rheumatism and guinea-worm.

The warm spring has now developed into a world class tourist centre and a visit would active make you happy!
