YETIS OF SIBERIA
The East Siberian Mountains, particularly Mount Belukha, have long been associated with mysterious sightings of the elusive Yeti. Revered by locals as powerful and fearsome beings, these creatures, known for their imposing size and strength, are rarely encountered but are deeply ingrained in the folklore of the region. Mount Belukha, Siberia’s highest peak, has been regarded as their ancestral home for thousands of years. In the early 1950s, Russian wildlife photographer Ivan Semenov dedicated himself to capturing the enigmatic Yeti on film, living in the harsh and remote environments of the Siberian mountains. Sadly, Semenov never returned from his quest, and it wasn’t until 1985 that his camera was discovered, providing a glimpse into the world of the Siberian Yeti and leaving behind a trail of unanswered questions and intrigue about these mysterious creatures.
