There are two stories about its origin. The first reports that the waterfalls was discovered in 1140 AD by one of the daughters of Oduduwa. The second claims it was discovered by hunters in 1140 AD, while the third story claims it was discovered by a woman called Akinla, who is the founder of Erin-Ijesha town and a granddaughter of Oduduwa, during the migration of Ife people to Erin- Ijesa.

It is a seven-level waterfall: it has seven layers with three major waterfalls at the first three levels. Tickets are said to cost N500 for adults.
