History:

The legendary Yeti is thought to date back to the Pre-Buddhist culture of the people living in the Himalayan region. The name “Yeti” is derived from a Tibetan word meaning “bear from the rocky place”.

The Yeti’s other common name, “Abominable Snowman”, comes from a mistranslation of the Tibetan term “metoh-kangmi”, which means “man-bear snowman”. In a newspaper story, the word “metoh” was incorrectly translated as “filthy” or “abominable”.

Though various footprints and hair samples have been attributed to the Yeti over the years, much like its North American counterpart Bigfoot, it remains a cryptid – an animal whose existence has not yet been proven by science.
