People travel far and wide to view one of nature’s most spectacular sights, the waterfall. Somebody at Chinese construction company Guizhou Ludiya Property Management recognized this and thought, “Hey, why don’t we build a waterfall on the side of our skyscraper?” And so they created the world’s tallest man-made waterfall, and people can’t quite decide if it’s a good idea or not.
It requires 4 huge pumps to lift the recycled water 350ft up before it cascades down the side of the building
And because of electricity costs, believed to be over $100 an hour, the waterfall is only in use for special occasions
Many people have reacted negatively to what they perceive as an extremely wasteful vanity project
“Since Huangguoshu waterfall is the most famous waterfall in China and it’s located nearby, this one can be like a small ad for that”
