The Abominable Snowman

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:10 pm on 6 December 2010

For hundreds of years stories have been told about the Yeti, an Abominable Snowman that wanders the Himalayas. Now a New Zealand adventurer is on a quest to recover some controversial Yeti artifacts which were stolen from a monastery in a remote village in Nepal. Mike Allsop, who climbed Everest 3 years ago, visited the monastery and heard the sad tale of the stolen skull and hand. Mike has worked with Weta Workshop to give the monastery replicas of the bones, and will hand them over next year.
