the following topic has been covered many times on this forum, its controversial nature has sparked interest as well as doubt and scepticism.
Fantastical claims were put forward by untrusted sources and the lack of evidence resulted in despair among those who were eager to get closer to the
truth. As my studies progressed over the years this topic crossed my way quite often, not sure what to believe I decided to not put this matter to
rest in the hope that together we can shine more light on the dubious claims.
It all started with an article by India Daily, "China and India both know about underground
UFO base in the Himalayan border area deep into the tectonic plates"
, posted on January 09, 2005 by an India Daily "staff reporter" who
remains unknown up to this day as they have not commented on the identity of the reporter even though several ATS members tried to contact India
Kongka La is the low ridge pass in the Himalayas (the blue oval in the map). It is in the disputed India-China border area in Ladakh. In the map the
red zone is the disputed area still under Chinese control in the Aksai Chin area. The Chinese held northeastern part is known as Aksai Chin and Indian
South West is known as Ladakh. This is the area where Indian and Chinese armies fought major war in 1962. The area is one of the least accessed area
in the world and by agreement the two countries do not patrol this part of the border. According to many tourists, Buddhist monks and the local people
of Ladakh, the Indian Army and the Chinese Military maintain the line of control. But there is something much more serious happening in this area.
Recently, some Hindu pilgrims on their way to Mount Kailash from the Western pass, came across strange lights in the sky. The local guides while in
the Chinese territory told them that this was nothing new and is a normal phenomenon from Kongka Pass area - the tensed border region between India
and China. This strange lighted triangular silent crafts show up from underground and moves almost vertically up. Some of the adventurous pilgrims
wanted to look into the site. They were first turned back by the Chinese guard posts as they were refused entry from the Chinese side. When they tried
to approach the site from Indian side, the Indian border patrol also turned them down in spite of their permit to travel between the two countries.
This is the region where the Euresian plate and the Indian plate have created convergent plate boundaries. Convergent plate boundaries are formed
where one plate dives under another. Consequently, this is one of the very few areas in the world where the depth of the earth's crust twice as thick
as in other places. The opposite is found in hot spots like Yellow Stone National Park in America where the earth’s crust is thin. The double thick
earth-crust allows the creation of underground bases very deep into the tectonic plates.
Recently, both India and China have moved forward to solve all border disputes and start the Sino-Indian relations all over again. The Aksai Chin area
is still disputed. But interesting while negotiations both the Governments are indifferent on this area. India and China as shown in the accompanying
maps have huge border areas along the Himalayas and they are negotiating on all these regions. Though India claims that Aksai Chin is part of India,
the common belief in the Government is that it is not a show stopper. On the other hand, Chinese after winning Aksai Chin from India in 1962 war,
built a strategic military highway. Now they are using an alternate highway not to bother with the area in Kongka La.
Kongka La is experiencing some strange phenomenon and suspicious objects coming out of the inaccessible huge mountains (Himalayas) and both the
Governments refuse to come out and say what these are.
The other alternative is that it is an underground strategic Air Force base of some one. Then why will either country allow the base on the official
no man’s land in the highly sensitive disputed border area? Why is this region continuously reporting UFO sightings from various kinds of people?

Lets stay grounded here and not jump to conclusions calling this an extraterrestrial base. More realistically this could be an Air Force base by
either the Indian or Chinese military, or even a joint venture project involving both countries, though they are not exactly allies and had intensive
border clashes in that region. But if the reports in the article are true and the Hindu pilgrims were denied access to the site from the Indian and
the Chinese side then this could very well mean that both entities are involved or are in the the know of what is going on there.
Now this gets more interesting when you consider the following two pictures:
The first is the actual Aksai Chin area, the second a man-made replication of the landscape within a Chinese military base:
There are several reasons why one would build such a detailed replica. It is speculated that this scale model is being used by Chinese military
planners. If you want to train pilots, infantry or artillery units on the geology of a particular area that is off-limits, create a model that allows
them to study the conditions. The same would eventually apply to a planned construction of a military base within a hardly accessible area, finding
ways to supply the needed materials without anyone noticing and making sure to secure the area in the most efficient manner, or am I wrong with that
What about the strange lights that have been reported in Aksai Chin?
Well it is known that meteorological balloons cross from China into India, they could account for the strange lights that have been witnessed.
Another explanation could be the so called "piezoelectric effect":
This region is located in an area of tectonic plates.It is well known by amateur and professional Ufologists, that in the past, ever since the 1960's
many UFO were actually seen in regions of tectonic plates.Regions of Tectonic plates are regions of fractures in the earth's crust.In these regions,
rocks deep under the earth,are constantly being squeezed under extremely high pressure.The UFOs seen are actually electromagnetic phenomena's arising
from magnetic fields in the atmosphere which are caused by the squeezing of those rocks.This effect is mostly known as the piezoelectric effect by
scientists.More than 40 percent of UFO sighting occurs near tectonic plates,and in fact they are not actually UFOs but mere electromagnetic

Is that actually a possibility?
Or the sightings reported are of military experimental aviation crafts built and tested in the area.
Anyhow, all of this caught my interest and more information and your opinion would be most welcomed.
