posticon yeti


No one knows for sure if the Yeti exists or if it is just another creature mistaken to be the Yeti. Many people have claimed to have seen the Yeti, but yet other people say it is fake. There have been footprints found and they are said to be made by the Yeti. Many claim it is just a hoax, but others say it does not matter because the Yeti is real.

    The Yeti is also known as the Abominable Snowman, with a thick and hairy body, the size of a large gorilla. In Tibetan, it is metohkangmi, which means filthy snowman. The Yeti is known to dwell in the Himalayas, a mountain range that lies in the border of India, Nepal, and Tibet. The Himalayas is a treacherous and dangerous place and few have entered it. Those who have dared to go into the Himalayas, however, have claimed to have seen the Yeti. There has been some proof like footprints and pieces of hair and fur, but many believe it to be a savage ape. Some people even believe that it is just a way to increase tourism. In a way, it has. Many people have visited the Himalayas in search of the Yeti. But few were successful. This is why people claim this to be a way to increase tourism. The tourism business has boomed since the time the Yeti has been spotted.

    The Yeti is known to be a peaceful creature, and yet a ferocious and dangerous creature. Some people have reported that the Yeti has saved them. They were close to death and out of nowhere, a big hairy monster comes and saves them. Yet others report that the Yeti is dangerous. Many say that the Yeti has savagely killed their cattle and destroyed their farmland. They said that the only reason they were alive was because the Yeti was frightened off by a loud noise someone made. Here is an example of an alleged attack. A Sherpa girl claimed that she has been attacked by the Yeti. She says that when she was tending to her yaks, a large ape-like creature came out of nowhere. The Yeti started to drag her off, but it was startled by her screams and she was let go. However, her yaks weren’t as lucky and they were savagely killed. The incident was reported to the police and they started to investigate. They found many footprints at the scene of the crime. This might belong to the Yeti, but the footprints can also belong to an overgrown ape. It was the right size and it would have sounded logical. But no one will actually know if that was the Yeti.

    As you know, there are many stories and folktales told by people discussing the Yeti. There was one folktale, however, that interested Mr. Ram Kumar Panday, professor of geography at Tribhuvan University. He recorded it and it tells how the Yeti population declined. There was once a beautiful village called Alu Goan in the Khumbu region. This village was a target for the Yetis and the villagers were always attacked. But this only occurred during the night, and the Yetis hid during the day. The Yetis watched the villagers working in the fields. They wondered why the villagers were doing this and came up with one conclusion, that they were doing this to get food. (You must remember that Yetis aren't the most intelligent creatures on Earth.) When nightfall came, the Yetis tried to imitate the villagers. The attempt to imitate the villagers ended in disaster. It destroyed the whole farmland. The villagers formed a council to discuss this crisis. In the end, they decided to stop the Yetis with the piece of information. The information they had was that the Yetis always imitated what the villagers did. So, they decided to use this against them. The first part of the plan was to use the young Sherpa boys. They gathered together and filled some pots with beer. (Chhang-locally brewed beer) They added some poison into it and left the pots and some iron weapons on the fields. Then, the Sherpa drank water instead of the beer and hit each other with harmless wooden weapons instead of the real weapons left on the fields. When they hit each other with the wooden weapons, they pretended to die. The plan was to get the Yetis to do what they were doing, but instead with the beer and the real weapons. And sure enough, when nightfall came, they did exactly what the villagers had hoped they would do and they all fell dead. Only a pregnant Yeti survived and she fled when she saw her dead clans folk.

    Some people say that the people who has claimed to see the Yeti has really seen one of these four creatures. One creature is what Sherpas call it, dzu teh. The dzu teh is a large, shaggy animal that often attacks cattle. Another creature is what people believe to be a Tibetan blue bear. This creature is very rare and it is only known in the west. But it isn't known to attack humans. The only evidence that proves this creature actually exists is a few skins, some bones, and a skull. The third creature is known as the gibbon. It is a type of ape that has never been spotted past the Brahmaputra River in India. The last creature is a creature called the mih teh. This creature is also a legend and it is a savage ape. It is covered with black and red hair that lives at altitudes of up to 20,000 feet. Whatever the Yeti is, it will always remain a mystery, for the time being.

     In the future, we may solve the mystery of the Yeti. This mystery has troubled people for many years and no one could actually prove it exists. But humans may solve this mystery in the future. Technology will advance and they can invent machines that can detect any unusual activity going on. This object will detect the Yeti and will prove it either to be an overgrown ape or the legendary Yeti! With this object, we can finally solve the mystery of the Yeti!

Re: yeti


Yeti
by Micha F. Lindemans
The Abominable Snowman of the Himalayas. In 1951, an expedition found a track on the Menlung Glacier between Tibet and Nepal, at an altitude of 6000 meters. The footprints they saw were 33 cm by 45 cm and were made by a foot which has 5 toes of which the inner toes were larger than the others. The heel was flat and exceptionally broad. The track itself appeared to be fresh so the footprints were not enlarged by melting snow. This was clearly shown by the many photographs they took. Although there were many doubts about these photographs, if they were believed to be true at all. But those who did belief were certain that was not made by any known animal.
Origin
The people of Nepal call it a "rakshasa" which is Sanskrit for "demon". According to them, stories of its existence date back to the 4th century BCE; references to the Yeti are found in a poem called 'Rama and Sita'. It has regularly been sighted since 1832. Yeti means "magical creature". The name 'The Abominable Snowman' however, was given to it by western newspapers who wanted to give their readers the feeling of terror which the creature supposedly causes in the valleys, crevices and glaciers of the Himalayas.

According to legends, there are three species: the Rimi (some 2,5 m), the Nyalmot (4,5 m) and the Raksi-Bombo (1,5 m). In spite of differences in size, the species have a general resemblance. The Yeti has reddish hair (although others claim it is gray), smells terrible and it is very strong (it throws boulders as if they were pebbles). It makes an ululating or whistling sound, and is sometimes heard roaring like a lion. The Yeti is rumored to be very fond of strong alcoholic drinks.

There are many uncertainties about its origin, whether it exists or not. Some say that the Yeti is a descendant of a race of giant apes, the 'gigantophitecus' who retreated into the Himalayas some [sign in to see URL] years ago. Another theory is that the Yetis are descendant of the A-o-re, an ancient people that fled into the mountains to escape their enemies. In the following millennia, they degraded to a race of monstrous creatures. Skeptics say that the tracks were made by ordinary animals like a bear or an ape.

Expeditions
Of the many expeditions set out to find it, was also that of Sir Edmund Hillary, the first ever to climb the Mount Everest. He funded this expedition himself, for he and his guide Tenzing Norgay had seen footprints of a Yeti on a previous expedition. Unfortunately, his expedition was as unsuccessful as those who had gone before. However, he brought back with him a borrowed artifact: the upper half of the skull of a Yeti. This scalp came from the Khumjung Gompa (monastery) in Nepal where it is kept as a relic. It is some 300 years old, 20 cm high and has a circumference of 65 cm. Scientists said it belonged to a serow (mountain goat) which lives in eastern Asia.

There have been many other expeditions, but on none of those they got so much as even a glimpse of the creature. However, just like the 1951 expedition, they found tracks of the Yeti, and made casts of its footprints. The lack of evidence did not keep the government of Nepal from officially declaring the Yeti to exist in 1961. It became their national symbol, and an important source of income. There are even stamps of the creature.
