How to Get to Mount Carmel Prayer Village, Ifewara

How to Get to Mount Carmel Prayer Village, Ifewara

The Mount Carmel Prayer Village is located at 15, Oke Eso, along Ife Road, in Ifewara, Osun State Nigeria. Ifewara is about 35 minutes away from the Lagere/Mayfair, the major part of Ile-Ife. This means that if you want to visit for a retreat, you have to get to Osun State from wherever you are. If you can get a straight vehicle from the bus park in your location to Ifewara, it is just fine. However, if you cannot, just take a vehicle (or two if you have to break your journey) going to Ile-Ife. When you get to Ile-Ife, you should take a bus going to Lagere (if Lagere is not your last bus stop already). A bike will be a better alternative, but it will definitely cost you more. When you mention Lagere, You should mention that you would like to drop at Post office bus stop. There is a Stanbic Ibtc Bank branch, past an FCMB Bank branch, a police stand in the middle of the road and a bike stand (so you can be sure you are at the right place). When you alight, you can then ask the motorcyclists at the stand to direct you to bus stand loading for Ifewara. If you take the bus, it's about #400 per person from there. However, the bus would not take you to the prayer village directly. The bus would drop you at a point where you have to take a bike (#100-#200) to the prayer village exactly. Alternatively, you can take a bike from Lagere straight down to Ifewara (#600) and they'd drop you right in front of the prayer village.

The security situation at the Mount Carmel Prayer Village is top notch. Although, the solitude of the area makes you wonder at times. There are no unnecessary bushes around and it is located with mountains around. It is situated in a properly fenced compound and the halls and accommodation areas are not far from each other. However, individuals should take extra security conscious measures in keeping gadgets and valuables safe.
