The yeti is also known as the abominable snowman. Purported to inhabit Nepal, India, and Tibet, it is one of the most famous cryptozoological creatures. It is akin to America’s Bigfoot.
In 1921, Lieutenant-Colonel Charles Howard-Bury found footprints on Mount Everest, and the term “Abominable Snowman” was coined.
Belief in the creature was widespread until the 1960’s and has since been on the decline.
There have been many studies performed on the creature. Footprints, hair samples, and recordings of possible yeti calls have all been collected.
It still remains a mystery.
