The Indian Army has come up with a news as they claims that they have discovered “mysterious footprints” of a Yeti, a mythical creature of folklore in Nepal. On the Twitter they have mentioned that it’s Mountaineering Expedition Team had found its footprints, measuring 32.15 inches, near the Makalu base camp in Nepal on April 9, 2019.
“For the first time, an #IndianArmy Mountaineering Expedition Team has sited Mysterious Footprints of mythical beast ‘Yeti’ measuring 32×15 inches close to Makalu Base Camp on 09 April 2019,” the Army tweet reads. “This elusive snowman has only been sighted at Makalu-Barun National Park in the past.”
Yeti, or ‘Abominable Snowman’, dates back to the 1920s and according to the fable, the creature walks in the Himalayan region but it has never been seen and even there is no evidence of it. The name was coined by a British explorer who first documented similar footprints in the Lhakpa La of Tibet. It is also commonly referred to as Meh-Teh (man-bear) and Kang-mi (snowman).
The legend of the Yeti lives on in popular culture and it is being referred in literature, movies, music and games. Scientists regularly debunk the theory, attributing “sightings” and “evidence” to other species inhabiting the mountains like bears.
After the Army tweet on Monday, it attracted attention of many user. YETI became a top trending topic soon after. However, many users trolled the army for their newest claim while many other congratulated them
Former BJP MP Tarun Vijay responded the tweet by “Congratulations, we are always proud of you. salutes to the #IndianArmy Moutaineering Expedition Team. But please, you are Indian, dont call Yeti as beast. Show respect for them. If you say he is a ‘snowman’.”
