China has been a world power for as long as they’ve existed as a sovereign nation. Despite the fact that they always play a big role in political and military crises of our past, there’s still a lot we don’t know about this great country.
Where their present isn’t exactly crystal clear, the thing that causes the most mystery is actually China’s rich past. Let’s take a look at some truly mysterious things that have happened on Chinese soil.
The Yellow Emperor
The Yellow Emperor was known as Huang-Di. According to Chinese ancient texts, Huang-Di was responsible for starting many of the values that made up Chinese civilization, but also possessed advanced technology and summoned a metal-scaled dragon. This dragon allowed him to travel to any part of China at amazing speeds. If this sounds like an alien in a spaceship, you’re not the first one to think that. Regardless, the Yellow Emperor is a very prominent figure in Chinese legend.
The Fuxian Lake City
Underneath the Fuxian Lake in the Yunnan province, legends told that a lost city could be found. In 2001, they actually looked for it and found it. They found a 1750 year old site that for some reason finds itself at the bottom of a lake now. As most of it is unexplored, the true reason for this city’s descent into the lake is only guesswork for now.
