Aliens, at Kongka La?
Kongka La is a valley in the Himalaya Mountains. It is part of an area for which China and India fought for control of in 1962. Currently it is in a no mans land between the two countries.
Both countries have agreed not to patrol this area, yet both sides have soldiers forbidding entry into the area from either side.
Recently, in a drawing contest at a local school, more than half the drawings were of flying objects usually coming out of the mountains.
UFO’s are regularly reported in the area. When both Chinese and Indian soldiers have reported these sightings to the local authorities, they are told to be quite and forget what they had seen.
In 2004 some Hindu pilgrims were on their way to Mount Kailash. Whilst in the area of Kongka La, they saw strange lights in the sky. Their guide told them that it was a regular thing for that area. Curiosity aroused, the pilgrims tried to enter the pass. They were turned back by the Chinese soldiers. They circled and tried to enter from the Indian side. Even though they had papers authorizing them to cross the border, the Indian soldiers turned them back.
Kongka La, is situated at a point where the Eurasian and Indian Plates meet. This means, as one plate moves on top of the other, the Earths crust is twice as thick here as most other places.
It is interesting to note here that neither Government has ever showed interest in mining, drilling or excavating this area.
Most of the UFO sightings have reported triangular craft rising silently, vertically. The same as depicted by most of the children’s drawings.
Does this valley hide huge caverns where a lost ancient civilization or aliens reside?
Was this possibly what inspired James Hilton’s “Shangri La” in his 1933 novel “lost Horizons”?
Is this what the Nazi’s sent an expedition to the Himalayas in 1938, to find?
Could it be a secret underground Government base? If so, for which country and why would the other allow it in a no mans land?
During the 1962 War,China built a strategic Military Highway in the area, yet now uses an alternate, so as to avoid the pass.
Both Governments know of the reports from the area, yet neither one will be drawn on the subject. Neither will either one allow exploratory teams to visit it.
What is it that both Governments know but will not tell? Is it Asia's equivalent of Area 51?
