Despite viewing it from a distance, this footage demonstrates the magnificent force of one of the world's most powerful dams.
The Xiluodu Hydropower Station on the Jinsha River in China - which was built with 240 million cubic feet (6.8 million cubic metres) of concrete - spews out a record 164 feet (50 metres) of water per second when it is in full flow.
Standing 937 feet (285.5 metres) tall, it is one of tallest dams around - measuring almost six times the height of Niagara Falls.
New video clips taken from the sky shows water violently cascading through the giant artificial barrier, with mist filling the surrounding steep-cut valley.
Xiluodu, which opened in July 2013, is the world's third-largest hydropower station. It took eight years and 79.2 billion yuan (￡9 billion) to construct the beast.

The structure is absolutely amazing but I wouldn't want to live anywhere near that thing! It looks like it came straight out of Waterworld or Mad Max!
