Gangkar Punsum - Lost Kingdom of the Yeti

Gangkar Punsum - Lost Kingdom of the Yeti

In 2017, Mountain Kingdoms MD, Steve Berry, organised and led an expedition into the remote mountains and valleys surrounding Gangkar Punsum in Bhutan. Steve was accompanied by scientist and fellow ‘yeti hunter’, Mark Evans, a crew from Icon Films and a large support team. They were there to make a film for Discovery Channel's Animal Planet and Steve's brief was to search for evidence of the Yeti.

Steve’s previous expeditions to the wilds of Gangkar Punsum had produced accounts of sightings of an unknown creature and evidence of mysterious footsteps in the snow. Mark Evans was intrigued to discover more and hopefully find scientific proof of the existence of this elusive beast.

In a 90 minute special (broadcast in the USA this week as part of their 'Monster Week'), Animal Planet present the film of the expedition and go behind the myths and legends to reveal the secrets of Gangkar Punsum. Is it the Lost Kingdom of the Yeti or not? Sadly, we have to wait a little while in the UK to find out, but in the meantime take a look at this preview clip.

We’ll keep you updated with news of when the full film is going to be shown on TV here.
