Steve believes that these prints could not have been made by any other four-legged animal such as a snow leopard. He thinks it belongs to large gorilla like creature as it traversed the snow white slope on Gangkhar Puensem, the world’s highest unclimbed mountain.

Steve Berry says:

“The local people said we were the first to ever set foot on that pass. I had always thought that stories about the yeti were a bit of old bunkum. But there is no denying these tracks existed. The prints were clearly visible with the naked eye from where we were standing on a pass at 17,800ft. There was a vertical drop in front of us, not to mention a very serious mountainside to cross, so we could not get to them.”

Mr Berry also spoke to a yak herder, who claimed that he too had seen the mysterious beast, known as a ‘migo’ in local language.

Mr Berry, who runs tourism firm Mountain Kingdom, added:

“He said it was about 100 yards from him and standing upright facing him and looked straight at him. It was completely covered in long dun brown-coloured hair and a face covered in hair like a cat or dog but of human height.”

Then, he said:

“You can recognise migo tracks because they put one foot directly in front of the other” and I nearly fell over.

‘I showed him the pictures from my camera and he said, “Yes, these are migo tracks”.’

The mystery of the Yeti has first emerged as a facet of Western popular culture in the 19th century.

The scientific community generally regards the Yeti as a legend,  given the lack of conclusive evidence, but it remains one of the most famous creatures of cryptozoology.
