China has their very own monster to rival that in Loch Ness, Scotland.
A team will explore the Kanas Lake in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in September, trying to find out whether the reported lake monster exists or not, reports China News Agency.
The story about lake monster in Kanas Lake has had a long history. In the past few years, reports have been filed by local people and tourists claiming they have witnessed the monster. Horses and cows have also been reported to have missed mysteriously by the lake.
Scientific exploration was carried out in the lake in 1987, but failed to prove the story.
To reveal the secrets, a team made up of scientists and divers will start an exploration again between September 5 and 15.
