Chinese Dropa Disks

In 1938, Peking archaeology students explored some caves in the Bayan-Kara-Ula Mountains on the border of Tibet and China. Chinese professor, Chi Pu Tei, detected regularly aligned rows of graves. The skeletons measured only around four feet in height and had skulls which were large and over developed. This was said to be the resting grounds for two tribes known as the Han and the Dropa, (shown) a peculiar race of people that fail to fall into any racial or ethnic group known to man especially with their enlarged craniums. 

At the time of the discovery, the cave area was still inhabited by two tribes known as the Hams and the Dropas. Anthropologists have apparently been unable to categorize either tribe into any other known race; they are neither Chinese, Mongol nor Tibetan. They are yellow-skinned with thin bodies and disproportionately large heads, corresponding to the skeletal remains found in the caves in 1938. They have sparse hair on their bodies; have large eyes and their height measures between 3’6” and 4’7” with an average height of 4’2”.

Also found in the caves were hundreds of stone disks that were shaped like an “lp” album with a hole in the center and a spiral of circles, that extended from the center to the edge. Scientists were baffled to their hieroglyphics until they were sent to a school that studied prehistoric hieroglyphics.

The message is the same as the drawings, but unfortunately the Chinese Government found the message to be not suitable for public ears. There also were pictures of a ship with concentric circles covering it and inside these egg shaped ships were the Dropas wearing a globe that covered their large heads.

A bit more info on these stone disks was that they would vibrate when unusual notes of music were played; the scientist wrote it as a prehistoric electrical system. I thought that was more evidence to their existence. And what else did they find? The bodies of the Dropas, the burial ground that the Chinese government said was a burial ground for a strange species of apes, since apes don’t bury their dead in underground caves.

The Dropa stones are said to be a set of 716 circular stone disks dating back 12,000 years on which tiny hieroglyphic-like markings can be found. Each disc is said to measure up to one1 foot in diameter and carries two grooves originating from a hole in their centre, in the form of a double spiral.

Inside a nearby cave system, Chi Pu Tei and his team found interesting rock art which depicted figures with round helmets. Engraved in the rock were also the sun, moon, earth and stars, connected by groups of pea-sized dots. Further inside the cave, the team found the collection of stone discs, most of them half buried in the floor of the cave. For the next two decades, it is believed that the discs were labeled and stored at Beijing University before being given to Tsum Um Nui for study in 1958. Tsum Um Nui allegedly managed to decipher the hieroglyphic characters after 4 years of study which he claimed told the story of a spacecraft that crash landed in the area of the cave and that the ship contained the Dropa people. One of the discs apparently said the following: “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 we understood the sign language of the Dropas, we realized that the newcomers had peaceful intentions”.
