Hiker finds secret WATERPIPE supplying China's tallest waterfall - forcing officials to apologise for misleading tourists​

Chinese officials have been forced to apologise after a hiker found a secret waterpipe supplying China's tallest waterfall.​
The video, posted to TikTok's sister app Douyin on Sunday, showed a large water main embedded at the top of Yuntai Mountain Waterfall, touted as China's tallest uninterrupted waterfall.​

That is China for you. I think last year, it came out that their missles are mostly filled with water rather than fuel. Everything is fronting.

Maybe the missles are where all the natural water from the waterfall went?

The waterfalls in Dogwood Canyon Nature Park near Branson Missouri are augmented, if not artificial. Apparently not that uncommon.

I was an Army brat when my dad was stationed at Ft Sill.

We later move to the greater Chicago area, talk about culture shock.

Since my dad was retired. we would take monthly pilgrimages to the dispensary and commissary at Ft Sheridan and the PX at Great Lakes. Since Sheridan was a command post with high ranking officers, the commissary was well stocked. ;)

I have a Chinese friend who swears the terracotta warriors are a tourist-manufactured thing.
I’ve been to see them, and I thought the exact same thing.
