Josh Gates: Is The Yeti Real?

Press release is out! Get ready for an #ExpeditionUnknown Himalayan adventure on Travel Channel!

NEW YORK — Long before Bigfoot was a household name, there was Yeti – the so-called abominable snowman and legendary towering creature believed to roam the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas. For centuries, eyewitnesses have claimed run-ins with the infamous beast. But without conclusive evidence, the question remains: is the Yeti fact or folklore? In Travel Channel’s four-week special event, “Expedition Unknown: Hunt for the Yeti” beginning Wednesday, October 5 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, adventurer and explorer Josh Gates embarks on an epic and enthralling journey through Nepal and Bhutan, in search of the truth behind the legend. Is the abominable snowman out there? And if so, what is it?

“The Yeti story is especially personal to me, if it’s even possible to get personal with an elusive hairy monster!” says Gates, who also serves as an executive producer. “There have been so many firsthand accounts of the Yeti, and several years ago, I had my own encounter. I discovered an unusual set of footprints high in the Himalayas. It was an incredible and confounding find; we cast the print and donated it to the Yeti museum at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, where it’s now on display. The experience has never left me, and now I’m heading back into the mountains to determine what exactly left those tracks.”

Relying on his wit, instinct, expert negotiation tactics and the latest stealth photo and video gadgets, Gates embarks on a high-altitude quest for evidence across the Himalayas. From the hidden caves of Nepal’s backcountry and the iconic slopes of Everest base camp to Bhutan’s mountainside monasteries and isolated forests, Gates joins renowned researchers, historians, mountaineers and local experts as he tracks Yeti sightings in hopes of finding the mysterious creature.

    Heard Josh say that Everest is tallest mountain in the world. It is the highest mountain in the world, the tallest mountain in the world is Mt. McKinley.

  2. Goodfoot responds:

    The tallest mountain on Earth is Mauna Kea, 33,500 feet from base to summit.

    As soon as these fools layer up and head for the high snow fields, off goes the TV. What kind of idiot would look there for a large primate with high caloric demands? The lush rhododendron forests below the snowfields are where the Yeh-teh will be found hanging out most of the time.
