This time Takahashi plans to set up infrared cameras at four points along a trail he believes yeti use.

``There's a good chance that we'll succeed in taking pictures of the unknown animals this time, because their route is geographically limited,'' he said.

``I'm anticipating the success of Takahashi's expedition because they have compiled a great deal of information,'' said Hiroyoshi Otsuka, a former chairman of the Japanese Alpine Club.

I hope they find it. Theat would help validify the possible esitence of live dinosaurs in the ocean like Nessie (plieosaurus) and other wierd animals.

Good Luck to them.

They really shouldn't tell the public until they're done, it just opens the door for hoaxers...

Apologies if this has been covered previously.

There was a programme on TV a while ago that was set in Bhutan where they were looking for Yeti's.

The team wandered about found a few rare bear DNA samples but nothing much else.

That was until the King leant them his Official Yeti tracker who took them into the deep into the countryside where they found a cave and DNA samples from someting that when tested bore no resemblance to a bear or ape.

If this is new to you guys which I am sure it isn't will dig around and see if I can find out what the programme was.

I had not heard about this, so I would appreciate any link or book reference you can provide.

Thanks for sharing!

It was on a TV series 'To the Ends of the Earth' I think but will do some digging around for more info. I am going on holiday today though, so might be a week or so.

I've always fancied going to Bhutan since finding out years ago it's is almost a closed country/principality. I think the King used to let in around 10 people a year who had to pay xx a day for the priviledge but it has opened up a bit more over the last few years.

The yeti is another myth just like Nessie lots of sightsing and reports but nothing caught on camera.

I just came across this.......its about time someone else went searching:

TOKYO Aug. 7
A Japanese expedition equipped with sensor-activated cameras and led by an amateur cryptozoologist is heading to the Himalayas hoping to track down the abominable snowman.

Seven climbers will spend six weeks in Nepal trying to capture images of the legendary humanlike creature also known as the yeti, more than 10,000 feet up the world's seventh-tallest mountain, the expedition's leader, Yo#eru Takahashi, told The Associated Press on Thursday.

This seems like a senseless waste of money, but hey who am I to say. It would be very cool if they found something. Have there ever been proposed pictures of a Yeti? Where would it sit on the evolutionary model?
