A tourist to Lake Tianchi, which means “Heavenly Lake,” in Xinjiang Region in northwestern China captured a video of what she claims to be a 50 foot long, silver aquatic monster.
According to reports, the incident that occurred on August 31st led to comparisons between the Lake Tianchi monster and its Scottish counterpart - the Loch Ness Monster: "A tourist in China captured on video what she claimed was a 50-foot-long silver “monster” breaching the water surface of a small lake long believed to be the home of a mysterious creature that has drawn comparisons to the Loch Ness monster."
The tourist, Ms Li, was walking alongside the lake when she noticed a disturbance in the alpine lake about 600 feet away from her. At first, she thought it was caused by several fish but upon closer inspection, she discovered the ripples were caused by a giant silver-colored aquatic monster that was moving fast in the water.
Per reports, her claims about the "Tianchi monster" have not been confirmed: "Staff at the scenic area later responded to Li’s monster claims, saying that due to the unclear quality of the video and the lack of a precise description, they could not determine what exactly the creature was. The staff added, however, that similar sightings have been reported by other tourists in the past, but it has been impossible to identify the species because of the distance."
