Recently declassified CIA files detail reports of UFOs over India, Nepal and Bhutan back in 1968.
The documents, which were published on the CIA's website earlier this month, include an "information report" disseminated on April 11, 1968 concerning multiple UFO sightings.

One of these occurred over Nepal on the evening of February 19 of the same year. The object was observed over the Taplejung district on the eastern border with China at around 9:00pm.

A second UFO was also spotted over the Kaski region in western Nepal around five weeks later.
"A blazing object, flashing intermittently accompanied by big thunder sound disintegrated over Kaski region," the report read. "A huge metallic disc-shaped object with a six-foot base and four feet in height was found in a crater at Baltichaur (sic), five miles NE of Pokhara. Portions of a similar object were found at Talakot and Turepasal."

The document also mentions other UFO sightings, including two over Ladakh, India. The first, which was seen on March 5th, was described as a "white light" accompanied by two blasting sounds.

The second, which was spotted on March 25th, was "rocket-like" and left a "white-yellow-white trail."

Consider that there was a cold war space race going on in 1968. The United States National Space Science Data Center catalogued 157 spacecraft placed into orbit by launches that year. Consider too the debris from the ones that did not make orbit or fell into decaying orbits.

Yeah. Tired to remind everyone that if a flying object is unidentified that does not imply it's extraterrestrial, it's simply unidentified and nothing more, the rest can be clarified only after thorough and unbiased investigation.

Vimanas were back in fashion in 1968

Yeah, and the size of object surely points that it was some surveillance thingy ( rather than micro size aliens ). Who knows what wasn't made those days, experiments with all sorts of stuff were everyday thing i guess.

If the CIA has recorded foreign UFO cases, but only few specific cases, chances are they were told to gather the info on what was a us spyplane or other top secret craft or technology. The reports just a catalogue of performance making sure or showing that if detected the UFO stories would veil the deeper secrets. Theres no reason to think that Aus UK and the USA were all working on

The cold war was a time of disinformation and propaganda. Who knows what the truth was during that era. It could have been black projects in spying by the USSR or the USA, especially since that is not far from the borders of the old USSR empire. A 6' x 4' object sounds a bit like a satellite. Certainly photos would be interested but are likely not forthcoming.  And I still say barring alien technology akin to warp drive or wormholes, interstellar visitation is highly unlikely given the distances and travel time involved.

One thing that always bothered me about ufos from that era. If they could travel interstellar distances with ease, why did they keep crashing?

They travel on autopilot but go manual when they arrive. Thats all I can think of.

It could be similar to our probes that crashed on Mars.
