The Yeti is an Asian Bigfoot found in the Himalayas. Inhabiting Nepal, Tibet, Pakistan, and India, the Yeti is probably the closest living relative to Gigantopithecus, a prehistoric ape that lived in Asia three hundred thousand years ago. In Buddhist mythology, the Yetis were peaceful creatures, that were very shy, and lived in dense snow caves on the glaciers which form the Ganges River in India. In modern times, most sightings and evidence are on K2. The name Yeti derives from “Yeh-Tah”, meaning “rock thing”.
