The Indian Army has claimed that an expedition team sighted the "mysterious footprints of mythical beast 'Yeti'", commonly known as the "abominable snowman" at the Makalu Base Camp in the Himalayas.

"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 April 9, 2019," the Army's Additional Directorate General of Public Information said in a tweet on Monday.

"This elusive snowman has only been sighted at Makalu-Barun National Park in the past," it added.

The Makalu-Barun National Park is located in Nepal's Limbuwan Himalayan region. It is the world's only protected area with an elevation gain of more than 26,000 ft enclosing tropical forest as well as snow-capped peaks.

The Yeti is believed to be an ape-like creature, much taller and bigger than an average human. It is covered in thick fur and is believed to inhabit the Himalayas, Siberia, Central and East Asia.

There have been many stories about the mystery of the "abominable snowman", mostly based on unconfirmed accounts.
