People often travel far and wide to see some of nature’s most spectacular sights – waterfalls.
The Chinese construction company Guizhou Ludiya Property Management recognized that, and they decided to build a waterfall on the side of a skyscraper. And so, they created the world’s tallest human-made waterfall.
Even though there’s no denying that the waterfall looks spectacular, people still can’t decide whether it’s a good idea or not.
Even though it creates a glorious rainbow when the sun is out, it requires 4 large pumps to lift the recycled water 350ft up before it goes down on the side of the huge building. It faced huge engineering challenges during its construction, and it is believed that it costs over $100 an hour.
It is located in Guiyang, the capital of Guizhou province in China.
Many people, however, have reacted negatively, as they think that it’s an extremely wasteful vanity project. The city is experiencing rapid growth, as people from other parts of the province take advantage of the huge building boom. The economy is developing extremely rapidly, as the province was one of the poorest in China just five years ago. The government is building a big data center in the city now, and companies like Apple, Google, and Amazon will be located in Guiyang.
