Ekiti State, in South-Western Nigeria, has its name coined from the native (Yoruba) word “okiti”, which simply means “stone”. True to its name, it is one of the few states in the country with the abundance of huge metamorphic rocks which form a beautiful sight across hilly landscapes. The hills rise 250 meters above sea level to make Ekiti State one of the cooler states in Nigeria, usually with a temperature range of 21-28 degrees. Some of the notable rocks in the highly humid state include Aramoko, Efon-Alaye, and Okemesi. Dubbed “The fountain of knowledge”, it is blessed with several tourist attractions and adventure seekers would find the State a natural habitat.
