Yeti in the News

A group of explorers believe they have found fresh evidence of the existence of the Yeti.

An expedition team who went in search of the mythical creature in the Nepalese Himalayas for a US television documentary claim they have found giant footprints of the so-called abominable snowman.

The team of nine armed with infrared cameras, spent a week in the icy Khumbu region near to Mount Everest.

They say they found three fresh footprints on lumps of sandy soil - one of which was about a foot long - which are currently being analysed by experts in the States.

It has never been scientifically proven that the Yeti actually exists, but there have been many reported sightings of wild and hairy creatures lurking in the Himalayas.

And many sherpa porters have had plenty of tales to tell about them to foreign mountain climbers on Mount Everest ever since the 1920s.
