On 31st of October the CFZ 2010 expedition leaves England. They will be exploring the Garo Hills in Northern India in search of the mande-burung or Indian yeti. The five-man team consists of team leader Adam Davies, Dr Chris Clark, Dave Archer, field naturalist Jonathan McGowan, and cryptozoologist Richard Freeman.

The yeti is one of the most iconic cryptids. It is the most famous man-beast but the one least understood by the public. I recently compiled a list of all known yeti sightings for the History Channel. It is very short in comparison to the sasquatch. Ergo a chance to learn more about this creature will be very welcome.

India is a country I have wanted to visit for a long time. The Garo Hills are one of the least populated and most poorly explored areas of the sub-continent. Its proximity to Buhtan and Nepal is intresting as the 'Indian Yeti' or Mande Burung is probobly one in the same as the creatures seen in these countries.

I'm hoping to gather as much information and eyewitness accounts as I can. A sighting would be incredible, but unlikely. Hopefully we may find some traces containing genetic material such as hair or dung. I also hope to forge links with researchers and field guides in India as we have done in Sumatra, Mongolia, Russia and Guyana.

  1. I hope the expedition realise how dangerous the area they are going to is? there are a lot of terrorist groups operating in the Garo Hills see for example this:
