In April 2019 a mountain expedition of the Indian army discovered huge traces in the snow in the Himalayas. They tweeted pictures, claiming the pictures were proof of the legendary Yeti, a big, hairy biped that is believed to exist in the mountain range. Not surprisingly, most people were unimpressed. 
Obvious Yeti prints have been seen many times, and many explanations have been made to explain them. If there really is Yeti in the Himalayas, would not she have seen anyone yet? Well, about that. , ,
10 Where's a camera if you need one?
In 1925, a photographer, N.A. Tombazi, through the Himalayas and took scenic shots. One day his porters asked him to come out of his tent, pointing to a dark object at a distance of 183 to 274 meters.
Tombazi saw that the figure was human and walked upright. It also had a dark color and did not seem to be wearing any clothes. This strange creature went from rhododendron bush to rhododendron bush, rummaging in them and occasionally uprooting one. After the figure was visible for about a minute, Tombazi lost sight of her as she slipped into a thick scrub. Tombazi was nervous; He did not have time to get a camera or binoculars.
A few hours later, Tombazi and some of the men went into the area to look around and found many footprints in the crisp snow. They were definitely human-like, but strangely small – they were only about 15 to 18 inches long and about 10 inches wide at the widest point. There were five toes, and the instep was visible, but the heel was often blurry or just a spike. The imprints were between forty-five and sixty centimeters apart, apparently from a biped. The scrub was too thick and the weather too threatening for Tombazi to follow the path.
The bearers all believed that the creature had been a Yeti, but Tombazi did not want to believe that. However, he did not miss the fact that the creature had looked very human in shape.

Tenzing Norgay was born in the shadow of the Himalayas and grew up there. He began mountaineering when he was chosen by Englishman Eric Shipton to help clear up Mount Everest in 1935 (an attempt to find a viable way to climb). Tenzing enjoyed the experience so much that he interfered with almost every subsequent attempt to climb Everest. On May 29, 1953, he reached the top of Everest with Edmund Hillary and made Tenzing and Hillary the first two persons to do so.
In 1951, Tenzing was back on the rise with Eric Shipton as the entire group came across prints in the snow. Tenzing identified her as belonging to a Yeti and then told Shipton that he and some of the other Sherpas had seen a Yeti near the village of Thyangboche two years ago. It was about twenty feet away when the group saw the strange creature. Tenzing said it was about 168 centimeters tall and had a tall and pointed head. His body was covered in auburn hair, but the face looked hairless.
Shipton had another man examine Tenzing in his native language, and Tenzing agreed with his testimony. He knew what a bear looked like, and he knew what a monkey looked like; this human-like creature had not been one. 
8 The Charm of the Hunt
One night in May 1951, Richard Steinwinkler reached a distant high plateau in the Himalayas around 12:00. He climbed alone and had planned to rest when he reached the plateau, but out of the corner of his eye he saw a tall figure moving behind an overhang. He immediately thought of Yeti. He was not a believer in his own right, but he knew that nobody else should be up there, especially at this time of night, and immediately ran to the overhang to investigate.
At the beginning there was nothing in sight. Then Steinwinkler noticed the footprint in the sound in front of him. He photographed the trigger and then followed the trail for hours to finally find the creature that had made the trigger. The animal was about 50 meters away from him and he could see that it moved on two legs and was very tall. , , but because of the terrain it was difficult to get a good look. Steinwinkler, who had run away with a discovery of excitement, suddenly realized that he was very, very alone with an unknown animal. Shaky Steinwinkler made several photos. Then he crept back as carefully as he had come. 
In 1952, Norwegians Aage Thorberg and Jan Frostis performed surveying work on the Zemu Glacier in the Kangchenjunga area, when they came across a fresh example of some of the famous trails in the snow. Thorberg and Frostis went with two locals in search of the creatures that had left the mark. , , and they found her.
The creatures looked like monkeys with long tails, but were as tall as a man and walked upright. Frostis suggested shooting one to take with them, but Thorberg argued that the specimen would be more valuable alive. So they improvised a lasso to catch it.
However, when the attempt was made, one of the creatures caught the lasso before it caught a creature, and another animal knocked Frostis to the ground and bit his shoulder. Thorberg hastily fired a shot and all the creatures fled as the men helped their wounded companion back into the camp. 
6 A Bad Position
In 1953, Dr. George Moore and George K. Brooks returned home after a visit to the Tibetan border area to help fight typhus outbreaks. They slowly followed the trail back into the mountains to Kathmandu with a group of Sherpas when a storm threatened to overtake them. They had entered a muddy, wooded area, and Moore and Brooks had left the Sherpas behind without being burdened by packs and hurrying home. A dense fog had set in, but the men could still follow the trail.
The two men took a break near a large rock so that Brooks could grab a leech that was about to get into his boot. Something moved so easily in the nearby bushes. then it moved again. Both men quickly drew their pistols and climbed a large boulder as they watched the bush. Then two screams sounded, one from somewhere in front of them and one from somewhere to the right!
Afraid that they might be surrounded, the men climbed onto the boulder as a furious clatter came from the bushes ahead of them, and more screams came from everywhere. And then a creature, covered with hair but standing, pushed through the bushes in front of them. The creature was about six feet five inches and had gray skin, black hair, a mouth "that seemed to stretch from ear to ear," and long yellow teeth and yellow eyes. When six or seven other figures became visible in the mist around them, the men realized they were surrounded by these monsters.
Moore and Brooks decided that the shooting of one of the animals would probably only aggravate their situation by firing a warning shot over the heads of the creatures, stopping the strange animals in their strides. Two more warning shots, and the creatures retreated. The two men, no longer in a hurry to get home, held their own until the Sherpas caught up with them and stayed in the group for the remainder of their journey home. 
5 A picky eater
In 1954 climber Charles Stoner conducted interviews on the yeti and other things in several Himalayan villages he visited. Stoner was interested in folklore and belief in the creature, but came across a story he was unprepared for.
In Tamyeh, Stoner was interviewed by a man named Lakhpa Tensing, who said he had had a chance encounter with a Yeti three years earlier. It was March, and Lahkpa had taken out his yak herd to graze where the snow had melted. When it was time to leave, a yak had migrated, and so Lahkpa climbed into a nearby rocky area to search for the stray animal. He heard a strange, screaming sound that sounded like a puppy, so he went to the examination. , , and found the entrails of a native rodent strewn on the ground and still fresh.
Thirty paces away, an upright creature the size of a 12-year-old boy sat on a rock with his back to him. It was covered with reddish brown hair and had a clearly pointed head. When Lahkpa noticed that he was looking at a Yeti, he crept back as carefully as possible and did not want to disturb the creature in any way. 
4 Word from Russia
In January 1958, dr. Alexander Pronin, a hydrologist of the Leningrad State University of Russia (now St Petersburg State University), was with a group in the Pamir Mountains. One day he was on a journey of discovery when he saw what he thought was a bear on a cliff, but when he got up, it was clearly not a bear.
The human-like figure was covered with reddish gray hair and had bowed shoulders. He watched it for five minutes as the strange creature on the cliff moved and did something, before finally turning and leaving its field of view.
Three days later he saw the same figure in the same place. , , and decided that it was time to admit that what he saw was real. 
3 Another picky eater
In 1958 an expedition was sent to the Himalayas to search for evidence for the Yeti. The naturalist Gerald Russell, who had already taken part in an expedition in 1954, acted as deputy head of this excursion.
Towards the end of April, Russell and his sherpa leader and interpreter Da Temba were in the Choyang Khola area, exchanging views with other party members who spent the night in a disguised observation post looking for unusual activities. A local man told them that he saw a small yeti who would visit a nearby creek every night to look for frogs for food, and they examined it. Russell did not see it, but Da Temba was in the right place at the right time.
At about midnight, an approximately 137-centimeter Yeti approached the creek, which Da Temba observed. It was assumed that the animal was a young Yeti, as it was physically shorter compared to most reports. As the creature searched for frogs, Da Temba shone a flashlight on the Yeti. Then it ran to the men who had fled bravely. In the morning, Russell explored not only Da Temba and the footprints of the natives, but also those of a small biped that resembled the look of Yeti imprints seen in other parts of the Himalayas. 
2 Patience Prevails  In 1970, Don Whillans belonged to a group of mountaineers who settled near Machapuchare. One night, one of the Sherpas with the group looked past Whillans and said matter-of-factly, "Yeti is coming." Whillans turned around just in time to see a shadowy figure disappear behind a crest. When Whillans and another mountaineer checked the next day, they discovered strange marks on the ridge near the spot Whillans had seen the figure the night before. The other climber dismissed them as bear tracks. Whillans was not so sure.
That night, the moon was bright enough to read. Whillan's tent was set up so he could stick his head out and see the slope and ridge the figure had been standing on the previous night. Despite the bitter cold, Whillans occasionally scouted for animals in the area. His patience paid off later in the evening, when quite suddenly a figure jumped out of the shadows on the hillside and quickly headed straight for the cliff on all fours. The creature was tall and mighty, and Whillans thought it was either a monkey or a very similar animal. He watched for a while, but nothing happened that night.
The next morning Whillans and two Sherpas went to investigate and found traces in the snow that corresponded to what he had seen the night before. , , but both Sherpas pretended that there were no tracks at all! Maybe they were worried that Whillans would be looking for the spring, unaware that he had already seen it. 
1 Surprise On The Slope
In March 1986, Anthony Wooldridge made a run / climb through the Alaknanda Valley in the Himalayas for charity. Wooldridge was somewhat unknown with Yeti lore at the time. When he reached a remote forest area where no other humans were staying since last summer, he was very surprised to see a striking path that ran from bush to bush through the snow. He took two pictures and then set off again, hoping to find a way through the snow to Hemkund the next day, which would be difficult.
About an hour later, Wooldridge's path crossed a steep slope. and before his arrival there had been an avalanche, so he stopped to survey the area and search for the safest way to cross it. As he looked, he noticed an unnatural groove in the snow, as if a large rock had slipped a short distance, and there were other footprints that led away from the bottom of the groove. He followed the trail with his eyes to a sparse shrub. , , and pulled out his camera to quickly take several shots before moving to a spot as close as possible to see more.
Something stood just behind the shrub, about 183 centimeters (6 feet) high at the top. The legs were apart and the creature apparently looked down the slope, not realizing that Wooldridge was looking at the animal from the right. It was covered in dark hair and his head was large and angular. Wooldridge moved down the slope a little to get another angle. Looking back, he had the distinct impression that the creature was watching him as well. As the weather worsened, Wooldridge realized that he would not reach Hemkund that day and suddenly went back to the last village where he had stopped before nightfall. 
+ Don & # 39; t Forget The Prints
On April 29, 2019, the Indian Army sent the following tweet along with three photos of strange prints in the snow of Makalu in the Himalayas:
For the first time On 9th April 2019, a #IndianArmy Moutaineering Expedition Team found mysterious footprints of the mythical beast & # 39; Yeti & # 39; with a size of 32 × 15 inches located near the Makalu Base Camp. This elusive snowman has so far only been spotted in Makalu Barun National Park. 
As mentioned in the beginning, almost everyone immediately taunted the tweet, but paused and thought for a moment. In the pictures, the large prints are separated by a distance equal to about one and a half prints in length. Thus, if, as the Indian Army reported, the individual prints are each 81 centimeters long, this would mean that the visible distance between the prints is about 122 centimeters – that's a lot of undisturbed snow between the individual prints! No one could do that with skis or snowshoes, and that would be difficult even for the biggest bears in the region.
So, what did the prints actually do?
