Huangyangtan Mystery (China)
It's clear that a huge amount of time and resources has been invested in this perplexing scale model, which incidentally represents an area of around 450 by 350 kilometers. The big question is:why?
The base contains approximately an 500:1 scale terrain model of a mountainous landscape which resembles that of a disputed area of land called Aksai Chin on the Chinese/Indian border.
Aksai Chin is an region located between India, China and Pakistan. It is administered over by China but claimed by India. Aksai Chin is one of two major boarder disputes between China and India, the other being Arunachal Pradesh. The region is nothing but vast desert of no economic value for either country as it contain's no permanent settlements and is uninhabited.
