Legends and myths speak of a massive, ape-like creature, the Yeti, that roams the Himalayan region.
Just as bigfoot in America, the Yeti too is a creature that many have searched for, but few have found.
While there are those who believe in the existence of these mysterious creatures, many others believe they are nothing more than myths and legends.
Nonetheless, it seems that the Indian Army may have found ‘evidcence’ of Yeti’s existence.
Recently, the official, verified Twitter account of the Indian Army’s Additional Directorate General of Public Information posted a series of pictures of what they claim were Yeti tracks in the snow.
“For the first time, an #IndianArmy Mountaineering Expedition Team has sited Mysterious Footprints of mythical beast ‘Yeti’ measuring 32×15 inches close to Makalu Base Camp on 09 April 2019. This elusive snowman has only been sighted at Makalu-Barun National Park in the past,” read the post, which was accompanied by a few images of footprints, as well as a group photo that appeared to be of the expedition group that made the discovery.

And it seems that the Mountaineering Expedition of the Indian Army does not believe the creature is a myth.
There are reports that the ‘mythical’ creature was sighted before at Makalu-Barun National Park in the past.
Nepali folklore is very familiar with the Yeti,—dubbed the “Abominable Snowman” in the West—a creature that allegedly looks half-human, half-ape.
Many people in the region have claimed to have seen one in the past.
Put despite wild claims and alleged sightings, no one has actually managed to find physical evidence that the creature roams the region.
The mysterious creature, much larger than an average human is said to inhabit the Himalayas, Siberia, Central, and East Asia.
The names Yeti and Meh-Teh are commonly used by the locals and are part of their history and mythology.
