Pulhapanzak, the funny-named yet regal falls of Honduras

pulhapanzak waterfalls

After leaving from Lago de Yojoa I took a short bus ride to some waterfalls near the lake to camp. Although I left my passport near the lake and had to go back, I still had plenty of time to wander around the falls. It was packed since it was a Saturday and also the Honduran Labor Day, but around 4ish everyone started to leave and I more or less had to park to myself. I hopped over the barbed wire fence to approach the waterfalls and take a little dip, and I quickly found out why they closed off the area to people going alone. The rocks were slippery, the water moved fast, and I got more than a few cuts and scrapes scrambling up there. The power of the falls were immense, and it was awe-provoking to stand underneath. Despite the crashing of the water, it felt like everything went silent when I approached mother nature's less than subtle display of her power. I was a feeling I won't be fogetting soon. Pictures are below.
