“Three sizes have been sighted, from the five foot tall me-teh to the dzu-teh, which towers over eight feet, and they may or may not be related.”
-Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain: The Journey Begins p. 10
This size differential would make perfect sense, especially if you considered the prints available at both Expedition Everest and the Matterhorn Bobsleds. The casting and carving that are presented below clearly represent two very unique high-altitude, and attitude, legends.
And what trek into myth would be complete without a tale about a footprint.
“I stared, first amazed, then perplexed, at the spot where this apparition had stood. Why had I not taken a picture? I stood stock-still, listening to the silence, my senses as alert as those of an animal. Then I crept into the undergrowth from which the creature had emerged only to disappear again, noting everything that moved, every sound that rose above a murmur of the lightest breeze, every scent different from that of the forest floor. There in the black clay, I found a gigantic footprint. It was absolutely distinct. Even the toes were unmistakable. To see that the imprint was fresh I touched the soil next to it. It was fresh. I took a picture and checked the soil around it. My shoes didn’t sink in nearly as deeply as had the creature’s bare soles.”
