In the borderland between Tibet and China there is the cave region of the Baian-Kara-Ula Mountains. 25 years ago, remarkable finds of tablets with writing and hieroglyphics were made there. Several thousand years ago a people whose looks Chinese archaeologists are only vaguely familiar with, had been cutting phonograph record like stone disks out of the hardest granite with a set of completely unknown tools. The 716 stone disks found so far also have a hole in their center just as phonograph records do. From there, spiraling out towards the rim, are double-grooves.


These grooves of course are not like sound tracks but rather the most peculiar writing-system that has ever been found in China and possibly even the world. It took archaeologists and scientists over two decades to decipher it. The contents are so fantastic that the academy of pre-history in Beijing didnít want to publish the report of the scientist Prof. Tsum Um Nui at first. Backed by four colleagues, archaeologists Tsum Um Nui stated,

"the groove-writing tells of aerial vehicles, which, according to the stone disks, existed 12.000 years ago".

In one place it says literally:

"The Dropa came down from the clouds with their air gliders. Ten times the men, women and children of the Kham hid in the caves until sunrise. Then they understood the signs and saw that the Dropa came in peace this time."

Finds of the Dropa and Kham races have been made earlier already in these mountain caves. Archaeologists were and still are unable to ethnologically assign these only up to 4 ft. 4 in. tall humans. There are no similarities with the Chinese, Mongols or Tibetans. One could of course suggest that a few thousand years ago a Kham literate was playing a joke, or that it was mere superstition when he was talking about aircrafts. But then, what does one do about the statement, all sensations excluded, reported in other groove hieroglyphics of a great mourning about the own airfleetís destruction during landing in the very inaccessible mountains and the lack of means to rebuild it.

The hieroglyphics of Baian-Kara-Ula appear to be so mysterious to the Chinese archaeology that only very careful scientific use has been made of them. On one occasion a sensational discovery had been made. The disks contain a lot of cobalt and other metals. When testing a disk with an oscillograph a surprising oscillation rhythm was discovered, just as if the disks with their groove writing had once been charged or had functioned as electrical conductors. Nobody can tell whatís behind these 12.000-year-old stone disks. Assumptions would be too risky and not objective enough. But one is reminded of the ancient Chinese tale of the small and slender yellow people who came from the clouds and were shunned by everyone due to their ugliness - large, wide heads and very slender bodies - and hunted by the "men with the quick horses" (Mongols?). In fact there had been finds of grave and skeleton remains in the caves from 12.000 years ago and itís also a fact that these finds, classified as remains of the Dropa and Kham race, carried the signs of a small body frame and very large heads. The very first archaeological reports tell of an extinct mountain gorilla species. But has anyone heard of ordered monkey-graves and writing-tablets? In 1940 the archaeologist Chi Pu Tei was widely mocked at for making such a claim. But Chi Pu Tei defended himself by declaring that the stone disks had been added to the caves by later cultures.

This is all rather confusing, but it does not change anything about the hieroglyph-mystery of Baian-Kara-Ula, which gets even more complicated by the fact that the cave walls show carved pictures of the writing tablets, in several places the rising sun, the moon and stars in between whole swarms of pea-sized dots that are descending towards the mountains and the earth in graceful curves.
