Tibet, Everest and the Abominable Snowman

For many years, they have told stories, movies, cartoons and probably TV shows for what they show in the Himalayas. For that is in Tibet, in Asia. They have told much about climbing Mt. Everest to the top and back down, but no one would survive. It is ‘the most dangerous place on the planet’ for what they say. Climbers climb up, but never make it back down. Depending on the terrain and the stormy weather. Stormy weather can also take down planes who go near the Himalayas. Passenger and cargo planes.

Glaciers of ice, cliffs of doom, and dropping temperatures, it’s totally a risk of living. Thanks to the hit movie “Everest”, that talked about the true events of the 1996 Mt. Everest disaster that had took place on May 10th-11th, 1996. An all star cast. Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, Sam Worthington, Jake Gyllenhaal, and so much more, it’s the climb of your life.

Many climbers since then, have tried going up and coming back down, but they never made it out alive. The most dangerous part also, are the avalanches. Luckily, one man skied down Everest in a documentary movie once. In a “Family Guy” episode, the Griffins made it up, and back down on Everest, but that was just a cartoon.

Out of all the things that happen in Tibet, the one thing people fear that’s an unexplained mystery, is the Yeti. Or in common, the Abominable Snowman. A creature that runs amok close to Everest alone, without being seen by humans. It’s like half man, half ape, and all furry with a white coat. Depending if it’s real or not.

Many movies and cartoons show that, on how an unexplained mystery, it still is today. Animators and director think for what that Yeti looks like, as they create for what they imagine. That was when Mel Blanc did that cartoon, “The Abominable Snow Rabbit”. As Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck escape Tibet from that Abominable Snowman. Others movies show how that the Yeti can be a fearsome creature as it can like tear a traveller to bits.

R.L. Stine, author of the “Goosebumps” books, inspired by this, wrote his book, “The Abominable Snowman of Pasadena”. That was how there was that, as in the movie with Jack Black, it escaped, looked at a chandelier light, and went on a rampage after being curious.

Lance Henriksen, faced that in the TV movie, “Abominable” as the Yeti was on the loose. Only if it does takes place in Tibet. In “The Snow Creature”, it would show how a bad idea it can be when you capture the Yeti. Like R.L. Stine’s book, it ran loose as they only killed it by shooting it. “Man Beast” showed only how many more Yeti’s can be, until there is the one which is the actual one.

“Yeti: Curse of the Snow Demon” showed how carnivorous the Yeti can be also, when it killed a crew after their plane crashed in the Himalayas. However, “The Abominable Snowman of the Himalayas” showed Peter Cushing and Forrest Tucker, as they tried to find that fearsome unexplained mystery on that monster. That was how adventure can be in that one. Finally, in a three part book series by Gordon Korman, that showed how kids can face all that when they’ve won a contest as they get to the summit of Mt. Everest.

So many of these showed, how Tibet, and Mt. Everest can be, even for what shows on the Abominable Snowman.
