Indian Army later shared the images of the footprint, measuring 32x15 inches in its official twitter handle.

“For the first time, an #IndianArmy Moutaineering Expedition Team has sited Mysterious Footprints of mythical beast 'Yeti' measuring 32x15 inches close to Makalu Base Camp on 09 April 2019. This elusive snowman has only been sighted at Makalu-Barun National Park in the past (sic),” Indian army said in the Tweet.

In the meantime, Indian Army in rejecting any kind of scoffing over its mountaineering team’s claim of discovering footprints of the mythical ‘Yeti’, said that photographic evidence about the abominable snowman has been handed over to subject experts for scientific evaluation.

“We held ‘photographic evidence’ about the abominable snowman for about ten days back and yet we held on to it until we decided upon some scientific theories,” Indian Army said.

The mythical ‘Yeti’, as featured in a traditional Nepalese folklore is described as furry and an ape-like creature that inhabits in the mountains of the Himalayas, Siberia, Central and East Asia.

While, the hunt for the mythical beast can be stretched back to centuries, it was in the 1950’s when a British explorer, Eric Shipton sighted a series of abnormal footprints while he was looking for an alternate route to climb Mount Everest. Shipton’s finding intensified the interest among people to know about this mysterious creature.
