Korak is fishing with a black boy when a gigantic oriental dragon appears coming down the river. Korak climbs a tree and sees that it is actually a train with decorated cars that ride on tank tracks. The dragon hits the tree and Korak is dashed to the ground unconscious. Asian soldiers emerge and take him and the boy prisoner. When Korak awakes, the leader, named Sing Piau, interrogates him about a great stone lion in the mountains. The giant statue is actually a meteorite that has a large amount of plantinum ore which Sing Piau wants to turn into cash. Korak, who knows the tribe that worships the lion, agrees to guide them, but manages to warn the villagers telepathically, since they have ESP. So when the dragon reaches the chasm that it must cross to reach the lion meteor, the tribal chief, Muthabi, causes the driver to see a wide stone bridge across it, when in reality it is just a dangling rope bridge. The dragon lurches off the cliff and half of the cars fall over the edge. Korak manages to escape the driver's cabin and cling to the cliff. Sing, who was riding in a rear car, collects his men and decides to raid the village first and then return to repair the dragon. Korak then frees Kaz and they take a short-cut to the village. Korak concocts a plan and mounts a lightning rod on the head of the giant lion when he sees a storm brewing in the sky. The villagers evacuate into the jungle and the Sing's soldiers take the town without incident. That night Sing goes out to inspect the lion and just as his pick hits the stone a massive lightning strike knocks him dead. Once more the lightning hits and the soldiers who are encamped on the base of the meteor are given a healthy charge, causing them to panic. They flee into the jungle, leaving their weapons and gear behind. The next morning, the villagers return and Korak and Kaz say farewell. As they are returning home, the pair see that the storm has washed the entire dragon off the cliff and it lies crashed in ruin in the river.
