Chinese Have Built A 350ft Waterfall On A Skyscraper And It Looks Straight Out Of A Sci-Fi Movie

Published 5 months ago

A Chinese construction company called Guizhou Ludiya Property Management have recently created something that looks like it’s straight out of a sci-fi movie. The company built a 350ft tall waterfall on the side of a skyscraper.

The waterfall is located in Guiyang, the capital of the Guizhou province in Southwest China. This giant requires 4 massive pumps to lift the water all the way up to the top and costs approximately $100 an hour to run. The waterfall is used only on special occasions.

The locals seem to think the waterfall is nice and may be good for tourism: “I think it’s more for showing the tourism of Guizhou province. Since Huangguoshu waterfall is the most famous waterfall in China and it’s located in Guizhou, this one can be like a small ad for that,” told one local resident Tengyu Zhang to Bored Panda.

Although not everyone is satisfied. Many people believe it’s an extremely wasteful project. But Tengyu doesn’t agree: “Well, it’s not always on. Only if there are some international and important events and then it will be open.”

The city of Guiyang has experienced rapid growth recently as people are flocking from other parts of the province. Tengyu says that five years ago this was one of the poorest provinces in China. “But now the government wants to build a big data center in Guiyang. So the economy is developing rapidly. For example the bases for Apple, Google, and Amazon will be located in Guiyang,” said the resident.
