The Baigong Pipes
Mt Baigong in Qinghai Province, China was the home to an unusual discovery in 2002 when U.S. Scientists, on the trail of dinosaur fossils, investigated three caves at the bottom of the mountain and stumbled across a set of mysterious pipes.
The pipes, known to locals for thousands of years are about 40cm in diameter, and span the length of the caves, out into a nearby lake, and incredibly up to the top of the mountain.
Locals say the pipes are extraterrestrial in origin, and were part of an ancient alien base, other explanations include fossilised tree roots, whatever the case it is an interesting and mysterious find.
