Yeti

Yeti are said to haunt the Himalayan mountains of Tibet, and are described as large, hirsute humanoids covered in reddish-brown hair.  The phrase Abominable Snowman is often used in the West to refer to Yeti, based on a mistranslation of the resident Sherpa's name for them, metoh-kangmir, which actually translates as "man-bear snowman."  Yeti are similar in appearance to their North American cousin, Bigfoot, and display the same baffling behavior, seemingly capable of appearing and disappearing at will among the Himalaya's snowy peaks.  And also like Bigfoot, they continue to confuse and confound eyewitnesses and cryptozoologists alike.
