The adventure, backed by ŠKODA UK, will see a fleet of Yeti cars drive high into the Bhutan mountains to visit areas where sightings have been made.

Bhutan is a tiny and remote kingdom nestling in the Himalayas between India and China.

The Yeti, or Abominable Snowman, has been part of Bhutanese folklore since the late 18th Century.

Thought to be a part-man, part-animal, the Yeti has been the subject of countless expeditions over the past 200 years with number of high-profile sightings that remain unexplained to this day.

Many locals firmly believe in the Yeti’s existence, while experts have suggested in recent years that the creature could be a present day specimen of the giant ape ‘Gigantopithecus’ which is thought to be extinct.

The team will work under the direction of Alastair Humphreys and will start their epic journey in Samdrup Jonkhar in the South East of Bhutan.

They will then travel north for more than 300 miles and up to an altitude of 3,530 metres.

The expedition route will take the team to the 162,000 acre Sakteng Wildlife Sanctuary where the Yeti is thought to reside. A number of local experts will act as guides and will show the team where sightings have been made in the past.

Alastair Humphreys said: “I’m excited to be part of this expedition with ŠKODA.

    The Yeh-Teh. The middle-sized crypid hominid in the region. If you read Sanders’ ABOMINABLE SNOWMEN with discernment, it becomes obvious that at least 3 different beings are referenced.

    The contrast can me ever clearer: there may be a half-dozen different such creatures answerable to the same general description, and in North America alone.

  2. Goodfoot responds:

    Somewhere in there was supposed to be a “be”. Eh!
