news icon rA photo of two peculiar dragon-shaped objects taken from a plane flying over Tibet’s Himalayas piqued many users’ interest when displayed on a Chinese website. The photographer is an amateur. On June 22, 2004, the photographer went to Tibet’s Amdo region to attend the Qinghai-to-Xizang Railroad laying ceremony, and then took a plane from Lhasa to fly back inland.

When flying over the Himalaya’s, he accidentally caught these two "dragons" in a picture that he took.

Fake. This could have easily been photoshopped. They look like CGI.

Why not try ant go to the original artical and see the pics of it enlarged up.

From my view, If that is a dragon, it is wayyy to big, its crazy! Looks more like a Glacier - flowing in between the Mountains.. However, I always thought they do not appear in the Himalayas. Maybe it is a river?

I doubt it is a wierd looking cloud.. it seems like it is on the ground rather than in the air. And if it is on the ground, like I said, it is just too long for a Dragon.

“It really looks like the dragons in fables, and I really hope it is.”

this is exactly why people believe ridiculous things... because they want to... its very highly unlikely for there to be giant flying dragons in tibet, unless there were many sightings of these I'd have to doubt its authenticity... this is most likely fake.

I see shapes in the clouds that are reminiscent of dragons...but certainly not dragons themselves. Whatever they're shaped like, they're still quite obviously clouds tongue.gif

Wow. What a great photo. Not sure if its fake and it too small to make any true identification. But very, very cool.

Well, it look like real Chinese dragon for me,but it can possibly fake, too.

Look at the low-left corner.

It's something on the ground, I'm fairly certain of that. I don't know what those structures could possibly be, tho. There isn't anything in the surrounding landscape that looks anything like them.

Mountaints typically are not long, cylindrical, and serpentine. hmm.gif I will admit when I first saw the thumbnail, I didn't see them. At all. Then I saw a larger picture and...well, we can always hope, right?

Whatever it is, it isn't a mountain or a cloud. A really big snake, a dragon, someone's idea of a practical joke, maybe, but clouds are never that solid and no mountain is that...smooth.

Someone on the cryptozoology board pointed out that if this was true, it would be all over the news. Is it, yet? Or is it being ignored? What about in China?

It looks like something in the landscape, is all I'm saying. tongue.gif They may be scaly and serpentine looking, but they don't look like they're moving.

Okay, I'll buy that they're not moving. original.gif At least not moving quickly.

I do not claim to have any expertese in geology, but i know of no natural formation that would look like that. And an unnatural one, you'd think the pilot would say, "And on your right, you will see the Really Big Dragon Statues, carved last year as a practical joke to startle people flying overhead with cameras."

I still think it's just coincidence.... it's funny that the colours of the "dragon" are exactly the same that make up the surrounding landscape.... dark rocks and white snow....

Squid, chameleon, octopus, all number of critters change color to fit their surroundings. many are adapted to have that color, the arctic animals, for example, which are white in the winter and other colors in the summer.

if it coumes out that this is a hoax, I'll cry and lament over the extent people go to for attention, but I don't think it's something made of rock.
