'Yeti' footprint photo fetches £3,500 -
The latest on the Yeti tracks discovered in Nepal October, 2008 is HERE

A photo that may be the best evidence of the yeti was sold yesterday for £3,500 at an auction in London.

The mysterious footprint was photographed in the Nepal- Tibet border region of the Himalayas in 1951 by a team of mountaineers heading for Everest.

Stories of an Abominable Snowman go back to 1925 when other climbers had glimpsed it. But the four pictures – one taken with a climber's size 8.5 boot next to it for comparison and showing the footprint to be just as long but twice as broad – is among the most tangible proof of its existence.

The sale at Christie's had a theme of exploration and travel. Another lot was Capt Lawrence Oates' sleeping bag case from the ill-fated 'Scott of the Antarctic' expedition of 1912. Oates went to his death after saying he 'may be some time'. But the bag stayed unsold.
