The Indian Army claimed to have seen a huge footprint of mythical character Yeti near Makalu Base camp in Nepal.
Taking to Twitter, the Army shared the images of the footprint, measuring 32×15 inches.
The footprint was reportedly seen by the mountaineering expedition team of the Army on April 9.
It said the “elusive snowman” has also only been sighted nearby at Makalu-Barun National Park.
The photographic evidence matches earlier theories, the army claims.
There have been many stories about the mystery of the “The Abominable Snowman”, mostly based on unconfirmed, often fantastical accounts of its giant size and terrifying howl.
The image shared in the tweet shows imprint of only one foot.
“As they say nature, history and science never write their final story,” the Army said, adding that the story is based on physical proof.
Army also quoted that they had received the inputs about 10 days ago, but held on to it.
Yeti, called an abominable snowman owing to its huge size, is a character mentioned in the Nepalese folklore and is said to inhabit the Himalayas, Siberia, Central and East Asia.
There have been researches over the existence of the mythical character, with some people claiming to have seen it.
