An incredible artificial waterfall poking out of a skyscraper, for a result with a surprising effect. We are a Guiyang, in China, where from Liebien skyscraper a high jet of water comes out 108 meters, becoming, in effect, the highest man-made waterfall in the world.



Managed and designed by the Guizhou Ludiya Property Management Co company, the waterfall is a real tourist attraction and is activated only on special days and for no more than 20 minutes.

The reason for this choice is that the daily cost of electricity to make the whole mechanism work is about 100 €. Inside the building, in fact, there are four 185 kilowatt pumps that bring the water back to the top.

No waste also with regard to water, since the water collected from the rains and from the recycling of taps is used. The same water is then stored through an underground system and then reused.

Guyiang, the capital of the Guizhou province, is a metropolis of almost 4.500.000 inhabitants, with the appearance of a large village and the skyscraper with the waterfall is located right in the business district of the city.

Although it has been defined as the highest artificial waterfall in the world, not everyone knows that, in reality, the primacy belongs to a jump that is located in Italy. There Waterfall marmore, in fact, with his own 165 meters, is nothing more than a artificial water jump built by the Romans in 271 BC and modified several times over the centuries. It was the consul Manio Curio Dentato who ordered the construction of a canal able to drain the waters of the Velino river towards the natural jump of Marmore, to sanitize the Reatina plain.



The Marmore Falls we currently know were completed in the 1938th century but the flow was definitively regulated between 1939 and XNUMX, close to the Second World War. Today the waters of the waterfall are used for the production of hydroelectric energy.
