Graham Hoyland: Yeti tracked down at last
Contact Derek Buckle
Tuesday 26 June 2018
Graham Hoyland, the climber who was responsible for finding the body of George Mallory on Mount Everest, has been on another quest. On an expedition to the remote Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan he found and filmed footprints of the mythical Yeti in a part of the country which has never before been visited by Western explorers.
In a lost valley near the unclimbed mountain Gangkar Punsum, Graham Hoyland believes he was stalked by the mysterious Yeti, a beast so unspeakably powerful that locals says it can kill a yak with one savage blow of its fist.
