Dropa Stones Translation

Dropa Stones Translation

A few years ago I came across a dubious looking website that covered various conspiracies and unexplained mysteries ( nothing like the level of this superior site πŸ™‚ ).

After scanning through 99% of the fake rubbish they had on offer I noticed a post covering ‘The Chinese Roswell’. This at once grabbed my attention and soon I was knee deep into the subject of the Dropa stones translation…

The Dropa Stones – The Discovery

The Discovery of the Dropa stones took place on the mountains of Baian Kara-Ula in 1938. The of Baian Kara-Ula mountains are situated on the border of Tibet and China.

One of the Dropa stonesA Chinese professor named Chi Pu Tei led an expedition to this area and came across a strangely positioned array of ancient graves within a cave. They dug these graves up for archaeological purposes and were amazed by the skeletons that they found.

These skeletons were of beings no more than four feet in height and had very large skulls to their frame.

One suggestion from an expedition member was that the bodies were probably that of apes, but the professor soon quashed that theory – when was the last time you heard of apes burying one another?

Further Into The Caves…..

So the interest was high among the expedition members – who or what were these skeletons the remains of?

They decided, naturally, to go further into the caves and see what else they had to offer.

Not much further in they came across wonderfully elaborate wall paintings of beings wearing strange helmets. Around these figures there were illustrations of the moon, sun, earth and stars – they seemed to be connected up by smaller dots!

Buried in The Floor

This is where the story of the Dropa stones story get’s really interesting. As they were examining the walls they noticed they were standing on something uneven in the ground.

Buried in The Floor

On closer inspection they concluded that there was something buried within the floor of the cave so they dug in. They uncovered a large stone that had the characteristics of a vinyl record – it was circular with a hole through the middle of it (much like a disc!).

They kept digging and finally 716 similar plates were retrieved from the ground.

The plates ended up being a lot older than the pyramids in Egypt – approximately 12000 years old!

Each disc was 9 inches (22.7 cm) in diameter and 3/4 inch (2 cm) thick with a strange groove coming out of it’s center. The hole in the middle of each disc was the exact size of 2 cm.

The Dropa Stones Translation

It was this groove that started off the Dropa stones translation process. You see, on closer inspection these grooves were tiny little writings or hieroglyphics carved into the discs!

The language on the discs had never been encountered before – they could find no way to translate it! They were eventually stored away at Beijing University.


The discs were kept in storage until 1962 when a scientist named Dr.Tsum Um Nui decided he may have luck in decoding the messages – he was right!

With the Dropa stones translation complete he got the full picture of what he was dealing with – he then approached the Prehistory Department of the Beijing Academy. The results of his findings were so shocking the department freaked out and forced him to keep the information away from the public.

Dr.Tsum Um Nui kept his promise with the secret of the Dropa stones, but he did not stop his research on them. After many attempts he was finally allowed to publish his findings under the following title:

The Grooved Script Concerning Spaceships Which, as Recorded on the Discs, Landed on Earth 12,000 Years Ago

Sounds pretty interesting doesn’t it? Imagine the reaction!

The paper explained that the Dropa stones told a long story about a race of people that traveled here from a distant planet. The people called themselves Dropa and they were in control of some sort of ancient spacecraft that crashed into the Baian-Kara-Ula mountains of the Himalayas.

The scared Dropa that were aboard the crash landed ship decided to hide from the world inside the caves on the mountain, but it wasn’t long before they were discovered by the Ham tribe. Now the Dropa had reasonably peaceful intentions on this planet but the Ham tribe did not see this – they hunted down and even killed a few of them!

The Dropa stones theory didn’t really get taken too seriously by the rest of the world – it was initially regarded as more of a joke than anything else.

That all seemed to change in 1968 when a Russian philologist called Dr. Viatcheslav Zaitsev decided to release a few passages of the translation in a magazine calledΒ Sputnik Magazine.

Zaitsev didn’t stop there either – he went on to preform more studies on the Dropa stones themselves. The granite stones were found to be made up of large amounts of cobalt that would have made the stones near enough impossible to carve – how would a primitive man manage this?

He also put the discs through a test with an Oscillograph and found that the stones once must have contained some sort of electrical charge – they were a type of conductor!

What Happened to The Dropa?

After the studies on the Dropa stones, researchers turned their attention to the people themselves – what happened to the Dropa?

the Dropa peopleThe cave area where the stones were located still had two tribes living in their vicinity – the Dropas and the Khams.

Anthropologists were called in to determine where these two tribes originated from but they were unable to relate either tribe to a known race. They also noticed that the people in these tribes had a very short average height and abnormally large head and eye sockets!

They were extremely thin characters with a very obvious yellow tinge to their skin color – could these be the direct ancestors to the Dropa?

If you have any opinions on the Dropa stones we would love to hear from you. Please leave any thoughts and views in the comment section below and we will respond to them asap. Thanks for stopping by πŸ™‚


  1. What happened to the 700 or so Dropa Stones..and where are the stones that the Russians had??? Where is the info that was decoded from the stones? Did the Chinese and Russians just make everything disappear??

    • You are asking the questions most of us would like answered David. Unfortunately there is a mountain of misinformation out there regarding the results on the decoding/translation of the stones themselves. We can speculate by re-posting the nonsense released on 99% of the Unexplained sites online, but that would leave us as empty as them! Russians and Chinese making things disappear – hmmmm, where have I heard that before????

  2. Interesting. I had never heard of the dropa stones before. I think that it would be interesting to go back and take a look at this stuff with today’s technologies. I am guessing that they still have them in Beijing. But who really knows.

    It’s a shame they don’t have more information on the opinion of Chinese professor Chi Pu Tei – were you able to uncover more on him and what his thoughts were?

    I agree with him on the theory of the bodies being apes – they don’t bury each other…as far as I know!

    I wonder if they will ever get to the point where they can translate these discs – maybe they need to uncover some sort of document to help with the language before that point (maybe go back into the cave and have another search?)

    Thanks for the interesting article. I would be curious to find out more…


    • I know, modern technology must be able to give us some more information by now, right Marc? Maybe they have uncovered more but they are keeping their cards close to their chest? It wouldn’t be the first time that authorities have done this!

      Unfortunately this is all the information we could get together at the time of writing this article Marc – I would love to have found more on Chi Pu Tei but unfortunately we were scraping the bottom of the barrel at this point.

      Great to have you here Marc and thank you for taking the time to comment on our work. Take care mate! πŸ™‚

  3. Been aware of this for many many years… likely the info was swallowed up into the deep state of the NWO and Illuminati.. Good change Naval Intelligence is very aware of this.

  4. I entertain the notion that when rotated these discs may very well provide a ‘guidance effect’ to their spacecraft when traveling among the stars! (redjeff53@gmail(dot)com)

  5. As for what happened to the Dropa tribe, it has been an ongoing fact that the Chinese government has been trying to replace the native Tibetans with Han Chinese and that this has been happening since at least the 1960s. The plan included building a now finished railway system to the Tibetan capital and other way stops. This has also been the case in Mongolia and in northeastern China. China wants a definite heterogeneous peoples with one cohesive culture. I am sorry that more people do not know about this effort nor perhaps care about it. Such are the facts. If we intend to know more about the Dropa we will have to recognize them and study their culture or race(?) more. I’m sure it won’t be very difficult to separate the lies and flimflam from the truth if we have access to the research.

    • Some good points here James – and hard not to agree with them!
      Thank you for taking the time to add this info/opinion to our article – helps it evolve as content! πŸ™‚

  6. I’m curious what the hole in the center is about…also it would be interesting to try some electrical tests with them to see what they apparently conducted electricity for and why.Cool story.

  7. Why has no-one found evidence of the spacecraft? Do the stones reveal a home planet or co-ordinates?

  8. several hundred discs with an identical sized hole in the center, that produce a form of electricity,,, from an engineering point of view I’d say either a hard drive, or a tesla generator.

    • A very good shout Jason – are you angling towards a alien form of hard drive etc?

  9. Unfortunately governments tend to keep secrets. The dropa stones are absolute proof to me that aliens have visited our planet for years. has DNA testing ever been done on the tiny skeletons that were found?

    • I’m unsure about that Linda, there have been claims and reports online since we published this article, but we can not be 100% sure about their authenticity etc.

  10. Hmm could it be like a record player but the discs has to be electrically charged to operate
