Located in Ondo State, South-western Nigeria, the hills are said to be over 800 years. The Idanre Hills is a cluster of hills surrounded by beautiful landscape. It has been home to the people of Idanre for more than a hundred years.

To get to the breath-taking summit of the hills, one has to go through 667 steps, though there are resting huts for hikers to rest during the ascension.

Present on the hills are evidences of the ancient people like the Owa palace, the native court, old primary school and so on which are testament of the heritage of the Idanre people.
