KATHMANDU — A team of Japanese climbers has claimed to have found several footprints of the mysterious Yeti in the snow in the Himalayas and were able to take clear photographs.
Kuniaki Yagihara, of Maebashi, a member of the team Yeti Project Japan, said they are sure the footprints will prove the existence of the Yeti, the legendary snowman who mountaineers believe lives in the mountains, but no one has ever been able to prove.
Yagihara said the footprints measuring 18 to 20 centimeters long were found by the climbers on the slopes of Mt. Dhaulagiri on Sept. 26 during their 42-day search expedition for the Yeti.
“We believe there are Yetis in the mountains so it was not much of a surprise when we saw the footprints,” he said in Kathmandu on Tuesday.
