The Yeti, also known as the Abominable Snowman is purported to live in the Himalayan regions of Tibet and Nepal. It is a large cryptid, generally portrayed as covered in white fur or hair. The Yeti entered popular Western culture in the 19th century, but was originally a part of the culture and mythology of the inhabitants of the Himalayas, with some groups worshipping or revering the Yeti as a nature spirit. It is also referred to as the Abominable Snowman, a term first coined in 1921 by Lieutenant-Colonel Charles Howard-Bury, leader of the joint Alpine Club and Royal Geographical Society "Everest Reconnaissance Expedition".
