Have You Ever Heard Of Poyang Lake? It’s China’s Bermuda Triangle

More than 200 ships sunk in the mysterious waters of Poyang Lake, sometimes known as China’s Bermuda Triangle, from the early 1960s through the late 1980s. According to nspirement.com, the episodes have led in the disappearance of multiple ships and over 1,600 individuals, as well as the mental illness of over 30 survivors.

Poyang Lake, China’s biggest freshwater lake, is found in Jiangxi Province in the southeast of the country. The real size of the lake varies greatly. “It is 1,385 square miles (3,585 square km) at its fullest in summer,” according to the Encyclopaedia Britannica, “although accurate measurement is impossible since the difference between flood level and low-water level is sometimes as much as 25 feet (8 meters).”

Large ships with weights as big as 2,000 tons have sunk in Poyang Lake, according to the agency in charge of marine affairs. 13 ships were lost in a single day on Aug. 3, 1985, which is an exceptionally unusual occurrence in nautical history.

For years, scientists have attempted to solve the riddles of Poyang Lake, but no definitive answers have emerged.

There was no wreckage on the lakebed.

In recent years, the Nanjing Institute of Geography and Limnology (the study of inland water) has focused on exploring and researching Poyang Lake.

Despite the fact that countless ships are known to have vanished, Jiahu Jiang, a researcher at the institution, believes it is unfathomable that no ship wreckage or victim remains have ever been discovered beneath the waves throughout the multiple excursions they have performed.

As a result, the data leads to the perplexing conclusion that anytime a ship vanishes, everyone on board vanishes with it, leaving nothing behind.

Invaders from Japan were also affected.

The Japanese army that invaded China during World War II, according to Jiang, also had a mistake on the lake. A Japanese cargo ship weighing more than 2,000 tons drowned at Poyang Lake on April 16, 1945. The ship, which was operated by the Japanese army, was filled with artifacts and antiquities stolen from Chinese citizens.

The ship sank in the lake, and no one survived the disaster. The Japanese military ordered its naval soldiers stationed nearby to rescue the ship after learning of its disappearance. Only one of the divers was able to return to the beach, but he was unable to communicate.

The survivor appeared to be in excruciating pain. He was driven insane for unexplained causes. The Chinese Nationalist government attempted to rescue the ship once more towards the conclusion of WWII.

They enlisted the services of Edward Boer, a renowned American diver and salvage expert, this time. Boer led a diving crew and began his salvage mission in the seas in the summer of 1946, but nothing was discovered after a months-long search. Several divers unexpectedly vanished during the hunt.

30 degrees north latitude.

“It would have been considerably easier to establish the reason if someone had survived an accident in those waters,” Jiang added.

The lake region has been dubbed the “Ghost Area” since no one has been able to come up with any plausible answers for the riddles after so many decades. Lake monsters, UFOs, and extraterrestrials have been commonly reported by locals.

The geographical position of Poyang Lake adds to the mystery surrounding the region. It is located about 30 degrees north latitude.

As a result, many people associate the enigma of these seas with other unsolved riddles centered about 30 degrees north latitude, such as the Bermuda Triangle in the Atlantic Ocean and Egypt’s pyramids.

The effect of huge aquatic organisms, according to one scientific hypothesis, is to blame for the sinking instances.

Freshwater dolphins in the Yangtze River and Poyang Lake, for example, may have flipped some of the ships, but this argument is flawed since dolphins are incapable of wrecking ships weighing tens of thousands of tons.
