China's Lake Monsters

On July 5th, ten tourists who were visiting China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, reported seeing a giant black creature that created waves over 3 feet high and left a wake over 30 feet long for about 20 seconds from their boat on Kanas Lake.

Kanas Lake is China’s deepest freshwater lake with a depth of over 600 feet and 15 miles long. It is located in the Kanas Nature Reserve in the Aletai mountain area of northern Xinjiang and has been the source of numerous lake monster sightings, particularly since the 1980s when tourism brought many visitors to the lake.

Kanas Lake isn’t China’s only monster infested lake.

Lake Tianchi in northeast China’s Jilin Province has had reports going back to 1903, with an impressive sighting involving over 100 tourists, who saw two black-colored, unidentified creatures in China’s deepest mountain lake on August 19, 2007.

Qinghai Lake is north of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and is China’s largest landlocked lake. The Qinghai Lake monster has been seen by dozens of witnesses, including a lama who reported a dragon like monster in 1947 and a 1949 sighting of a giant creature with a snake like head and glistening scales.

Changtan, a lake located in Shennongjia, in western Hubei Province, is the home of a giant sea monster with grey skin, oblate head, giant eyes and five toes on the forelimb, matching the classic Loch Ness Monster, Okanagan Lake in Canada, and Lake Champlain Monster description.

Wenbu Lake in Kunzha County, China’s Tibet Autonomous Region covers over 320 square miles and has reports of a creature with a small head, big eyes, long neck and grey and black skin.
