It's claimed that through this peculiar expedition that one of the fascinating discoveries that was made was the actual caves themselves that the team was exploring as they MAY have been artificially carved somehow It's said, It's also worth mentioning at this point these caves are said to be around 10 - 12,000 years old as well, they also say the caves were more like a complex system of tunnels and underground store rooms than anything else.
The walls were even squared and glazed; they say it's as if it was actually cut into the mountain with a source of extreme heat!
The Dropa disks tell the story of a space probe from a distant planet that crash-landed in the Baian-Kara-Ula mountains of the Himalayas. The occupants of the spacecraft -- the Dropa -- found refuge in the caves of the mountains. Despite their peaceful intentions, the Dropa were misunderstood by members of the Han tribe who were occupying neighboring caves and who hunted down the aliens and even killed some of them.
A translation of one of the passages says: "The Dropa came down from the clouds in their aircraft. Our men, women, and children hid in the caves ten times before sunrise. When at last they understood the sign language of the Dropa, they realized that the newcomers had peaceful intentions...."
The issues of translation point even more strongly to an outright hoax. Translation is the work of years and teams, not the work of a single man and a short time. Since we both know English, take a moment to ponder how you'd translate this Old English text:
I,m 50/50 on this one but I would not be surprised if something emerged in a few years to back all this Dropa stone mystery up. (maybe the stones might turn up from Russia)
A New Expedition
Baian-Kara-Ula remains one of China’s most remote regions. Its mountains reach as high as 5,000 metres and descend to 2,000 metres. Despite the altitude, summers can be pleasantly warm in this region.
It is now said that a new expedition is being prepared and will soon be under way. It is apparently largely an initiative of Chinese media empires, its main sponsor being the China Daily newspaper. If the participants are able to get their act together, it might not be another decade before this story takes yet another twist.

Great post , one of the best I've read and though it does have some dodgy evidence it is still compelling.
I noticed that idiot that counted your words never showed up again!

Yes, the subject has been done many times here on ATS, but this is, IMHO, one laid out and thought out threads on the subject covering both the pro and con aspects of the story. Also bringing these topics back to the front allows new members to ATS to be introduced to such things where they may not have known about this to even attempt a search for it.
