The Yeti

Yeti comes from far away world full of magic and mystery. Humans try to find yeti. Some humans want to hurt yeti. When they get too close, Lorna and Darren shout “Fly Yeti, Fly”!!


Other humans also write about Yeti…


“Somewhere in the region of the long line of snows, far beyond the valley, it was taken for granted that there dwelt an ape-like, man-like creature the Banmanche. More than that nobody could tell. There was a refreshing disapproval of any attempt to molest it, or try and turn it into a sporting animal: otherwise there was sympathetic interest and a barrage of good wishes from all sides, but there was some dispute as to whether the Banmanche was really a spirit or an animal of flesh and blood.”

“We are glad to see you,” I was told, “because our Sherpa people like the English. But many of us are upset at the thought of your meddling with the Yeti. We have heard how fond your countrymen are of sport, and we do not want it to be hunted down and killed. We Sherpas are Buddhists, and in any case do not kill wild animals: the Yeti is something special, and we are much alarmed at the thought of your interfering with it.”

“The Sherpas all take it for granted that the Yeti exists, and that it is a flesh-and-blood animal, not a spirit or demon. To the Tibetans of this region it is known as TEH (pronounced Tay), and from this derives the Sherpa name, made up of two words, YEH, meaning a rocky place, and TEH, the term for this type of animal. So that YEH-TEH is the kind or type of TEH that lives in a rocky place.”
