Bigfoot Encounters

Tibetan Snowman Remains Unsolved Riddle

  A Polish mountaineer said he saw a big face with red hair through a crack in his tent one night on his way to the "Qomolangma Peak" in 1975. He yelled loudly and the creature ran away quickly.

Mt. Everest, also known as Mt. Qomolangma, meaning Goddess Third in Tibetan, is the highest peak in the world. The 8848 meters (29028 feet) high peak, snow capped throughout the year, lies at the border between China and Nepal.

A Japanese female mountaineering team also saw strange footprints at the Himalayas in the 1980s.

An officer from the Chengdu Military Area Command said he saw a hairy abominable snowman twice when he stayed in the Ngari Prefecture of Tibet in 1960. One abominable snowman tried to snatch a gun from a soldier and was killed by the soldier. The soldiers claimed they buried the 300-kg yeti without recording any evidence of it.

An Italian mountaineer claimed to have solved the riddle of the abominable snowman recently. He said he had seen abominable snowmen on many occasion and considers them to be a kind of brown bear in the Himalayas.
