China Unveils the World’s Highest Man-Made Waterfall

The world’s highest artificial waterfall is now up and running in China.

The waterfall in Guiyang, Guizhou Province has a height of 108 meters (354 feet) and is installed on the side of Liebian Square, a skyscraper towering 121 meters (397 feet).

Locals initially thought that water was leaking from the building.

But the installation requires four 185 kilowatt pumps to run its recycled water stored in an underground reservoir, Sina News noted.

A video of the scenic decor filmed on July 20 has received millions of views and thousands of likes on Chinese social media, according to CGTN.

Netizens debated its necessity as it costs 800 yuan (around $118) an hour to operate.

However, the building’s management said that the waterfall will only run on special occasions for 20 minutes.
