Basin Zim, Hinche - HAITIBassin Zim Water Fall - Not far from the town of Hinche Haiti is an amazing water fall. It is one of the hidden treasures of Haiti that has never been explored. For more than one, is not just a water fall. It’s a wonder. The river that becomes this beautiful water called Bassin Zim comes shooting out of a whole in the mountain top, behind a cave. The water then goes through three natural pools before finally creating the water fall. Behind the water fall is another cave and visitors swim through the water fall into the cave. Bassin Zim waterfall in Haiti is a beautiful spring fed water fall in the heart of the Central Plateau (Plateau Central, Haiti) near Hinche and Nan Papaye Haiti. If you decide to pay a visit, don’t hesitate to contact Dugue to arrange a trip.

Peligre Dam in HaitiThe Péligre Dam is a hydroelectric dam located off the Centre Department on the Artibonite River of Haiti. It is the largest on the island of Hispaniola consisting of Haiti and the Dominican Republic. It was created as a flood-control and an energy-provider in 1930s. Lake Péligre (essentially a large reservoir). The Peligre Hydroelectric Plant and its consequent operation was completed in 1971. The plant situated on the dam provides the country with most of its needed electricity. Recently, spanning over the last few decades, a rapid rate of silt deposition has occurred, reducing the energy producing capability of the reservoir.
The power plant, though needed, has fallen into near disrepair. The EDH (Électricité d'Haïti), Haiti's federal electricity supplier, has done relatively little to restructure the plant however. As of current, the hydroelectric potential is estimated to be around 173 megawatts.
