Human waterfall in Dubai Mall

Experiencing the Dubai Mall Waterfall

by Dubai Travel Planner

Whilst the city of Dubai is bereft of any natural waterfalls, when people refer to the “Dubai Waterfall” or the “Human Waterfall”, they are most likely referring to the prominent water feature inside the Dubai Mall.

The Dubai Waterfall is a spectacular indoor art installation. Comprised of two large cylindrical walls 30 metres in diameter and 24 metres high – spanning the three floors of the Dubai Mall – it is one of the Mall’s most eye-catching features.

Recycled water cascades over the walls whilst fibreglass sculptures of men diving in unison create a truly mesmerising experience.

Dramatic and eye-catching, it is one of the more interesting features of the Dubai Mall certainly worth a stop on your Dubai itinerary to marvel at and photograph. Surrounded by coffee shops and restaurants, there are plenty of ways to prolong your visit to the Dubai Waterfall.

Another great part about the Dubai Waterfall, it makes an excellent meeting point! Just be clear when saying “meet me at the waterfall” you say which floor as it does cover a rather large area of the mall!
