Clues to the mystery beast’s existence were allegedly found at the snow-capped Mount Makalu in Nepal.

Indian Army mountaineers say they have found mysterious footprints in the snow that they think belong to the Yeti or the abominable snowman.

Largely regarded by the scientific community as a myth, the Yeti is part of Nepali folklore and is said to live high in the snow-capped Himalayas. 

In a tweet accompanied by pictures, the Indian army said it had sighted footprints measuring 32 by 15 inches (81 by 38 cm) close to a camp near Mount Makalu, Nepal, on April 9.

“For the first time, an Indian Army Mountaineering Expedition Team has sited Mysterious Footprints of mythical beast ‘Yeti'” it said in a tweet.
