China’s Tallest Waterfall Isn’t ‘Natural’, Hiker Finds Man-Made Pipes Flushing Out Water

It is located within the scenic Yuntai Mountain Global Geopark and offers nature-loving tourists stunning views, making it a popular destination for everyone to visit.

However, as it turns out, the Yuntai Mountain Waterfall is not ‘natural’, at least not most of the time. According to a report by Indian Express, a hiker decided to climb right on top of the mountain, from where the water starts falling. To his surprise, he found man-made pipes discreetly channelling water into the fall.

Here’s a video of the incident that went viral on social media:

Chinese officials gave a clarification for this. They said that since the Yuntai Mountain Waterfall is a seasoned waterfall, it can’t guarantee its fall and beauty throughout the year. Hence, this arrangement has been made so that tourists can witness its beauty year-round, especially during the dry season.

Several people found this hilarious and very ‘Chinese’ like, considering how China is infamous for creating rip-offs! Here’s how some of them reacted:

The most made-in-China thing to do! 😛
