Yeti, an Abominable History by Graham Hoyland

Yeti, an Abominable History by Graham Hoyland

If you’re looking for a good book to take away with you on your summer holidays, look no further than Graham Hoyland’s thrilling new read: ‘Yeti – an Abominable History’. Mountaineer, film producer and best-selling author, Graham travelled to Bhutan with our MD, Steve Berry, in 2016, on an expedition to see if they could discover the whereabouts of the yeti!

Whilst exploring in remote valleys near the unclimbed peak of Gangkar Punsum, Graham, a former trek leader for Mountain Kingdoms, believed he was being stalked by an unknown beast and he also filmed some mysterious footprints. These were similar to those seen by Steve on his previous expeditions in the region. 

Intrigued by his own experiences in Bhutan, Graham has delved into the ancient legends, literature and modern-day accounts that surround the yeti and other mythical monsters, to try to shed some light into the existence, or not, of these legendary creatures.

The result is his fascinating new book, published by William Collins and available at Amazon or from other good bookshops.

If you would like to discover more about Steve’s epic search for the yeti watch our video Bhutan – Footsteps in the Snow. And if you’d like to go on your own yeti hunt, then take a look at our Gangkar Punsum Approach Trek.
