Link o’ the day

| July 24, 2006

The Sydney Morning Herald has an interesting article about a curious location in China. This location contains a scaled-down replica of rugged terrain, “complete with snow-capped mountains, streams and valleys.” Here is a direct link to the location in China via Google Maps. The scale model is roughly 850 meters long by 700 meters wide (or close to 150 acres in area).

The scale model appears to be of a disputed border area between China and India; my own examination using Google Maps confirms the similarities (again, here’s a direct link).

As I said, curious. Hat tip to ForteanTimes. ..bruce..
