Have any of you heard of the Dropas? or the Dropa Stones? There is a very interesting story about how the Dropa came to earth a ways back and inhabited a cave and they had these strange discs they brought with them. I suppose no one knows what the discs were for but the story is pretty interesting.

The Dropas are located in a remote part of China and supposedly "crashed landed" there 12000 years ago. They look somewhat Asian but there is something different about them:


Heres the stones:

Sadly it seems as if all the information about these people (assuming they actually exist) is all copied from the same source, or rather, everyone copies each other (including the site you linked to). The HAB Theory site references them, quoting the text in the book nearly verbatim. Which, oddly enough, is the same info everywhere else. Maybe it's the originating source?

The photo of the people is the only picture I've been able to find, and it really makes me question its authenticity. In the end we have no guarantee that it's genuine, nor do we have any assurance that the stones actually have any writing on them. Which brings up another question: how were the stones translated? Would not a key or some sort be required? Whenever these stories come up, there are stories of how one or two people, working alone, managed to "Crack the code" so to speak. Meanwhile, Egyptian hieroglyphs were impossible to penetrate without the assistance of the Rosetta stone, and therefore remained undeciphered for over a thousand years.

I also find it curious that there are fairly decent pictures of the stones themselves, but none of the alleged writing, nor more modern photos of the Dropa. It's bloody convienient that the area where the Dropa are claimed to live is supposed to be off-limits to the West. That would make simple verification possible. As it is, all we have is the word of a vague and undefined group of people (or possibly even just one person). Coincidentally, there is another tribe of people referenced in the Dropa story, a race called the "Han". The Chinese call themselves Han.

All-in-all, there's something less-than-credible about the whole thing. If I could find some DIFFERENT information about the Dropa, something which doesn't seem to be a word-for-word copy of the material in the HAB Theory, I might have an easier time believing the story.

Good points. I just think the story is interesting. When it comes to mysterious stuff I usually don't care if it's truth or not as long as the story is good. I'm not really a skeptic or a believer of things, I'm just here to take and trade notes.

Hi Namtar, yep, this subject has already been discussed on here. Good topic though, i've done a bit of research on these people, they live on the border of Tibet and China and are guarded by armed chinese guards. The tallest being 4ft and the shortest 3ft. Another interesting piece of info is that they have pale blue iris'. Their story is one of great interest, 72 discs were found by a scientist and when made his findings known to other researchers, chinese authorities forbade him to go public with this. However, he did manage to take photographs as seen above making them public as well as the info he found on the disks themselves. Interestingly, each disk has a story of their foundations and was created using some type of electrical device.

That's an excellent summation of every bit of available information on the Dropa. As good as you'll find anywhere. All the information you gave was in the link Namtar posted. And that's the problem. There's nothing else! It's as if someone out there read the HAB Theory and decided that this Dropa story was so great that he had to spread it and see if people would buy into it. If not for the scant photographic evidence, there would be nothing at all to support the story. Does anyone know of new information? Perhaps a biography of the persons involved? Anything at all that wasn't copied from the HAB Theory? (which is a rather good book, if a bit dated in many ways)

one could only imagine what would happen if the western science community had access to these folk...or the westeren multimedia industry
. exploitation, to say the least.
