Yeti in Kyrgyzstan

The Kyrgyz call it Albarsty

Yeti footprint found in Kyrgyzstan
Yeti footprint found in Kyrgyzstan

My name is Chyngyz Ametov

 

I was born in the remote mountainous region in the south of Kyrgyzstan

In the Nomad family

 

The place I'm talking about

 before the Russian revolution in1917 and creation of the USSR (Kyrgyzstan was part of it till the 1991)

 

 And till 1960th  (when the primitive  roads were built)

 

 Was accessible only 2-3 summer months

 

And only on the horse back

 

 

 

 

 

People in that region didn't have much money or something of that sort,

Which could attract people from other places

 

 

Also that place was not a cross road to other countries

Which could attract the merchants 

 

There in that region never lived many people

 

And  the mountains of that region were not visited by the people from the other regions

Because of  the above mentioned reasons

 

 

 

After the 1917 during the Soviet time due to the animosity between the USSR and the China

That region was closed not only to the foreigners but also to the  Soviet citizens who lived in other regions

 

 

After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 and till now, due to the economical reasons ,people have been emigrating from that region

 

And number of people visiting the mountains in that region decreased

 

 

 

 

In sum: there were  never and there are  never many people living in that region 

And most of the year there were many places in that region never visited  even by the local people

 

 

 

 

Once in the land of our tribe 

My aunt has decided to camp in  the place which was not favored by the Nomads

 

It was situated amidst the sort of the mountainous forest

 

There were many things in that region ,which could not  be explained

 

For example: I saw the brook running absolutely noisless

 

And when I tied four long sticks (I got very big stick.it was about 10-meters long) I couldn't reach the bottom of the brook with that stick

 

The cattle many times couldn't find the way to get out of that place

 

They were sort of walking around

 

Many times the cattle just disappeared there

 

 

 

And the Nomads never liked to go to  camp to that place

 

 

 

But  my aunt has  decided to camp at that place

 

I don't know why. 

 

After spending there only one day

she decided to move away from that place. 

 

While moving to another place, the cows got lost

 

So me and my cousin brother were sent to find and bring the cows to the new camp

 

On the way from that place me and my cousin played the Kyrgyz national game called Chikildik

 

I won always and my cousin brother got jealous, angry and beat me up

 

I didn't know the way to the new camp 

 

My cousin did

 

Because we had a fighting we did not speak

We tried to pretend that we didn't see each other

 

So we tried not to  make any noise walking stealthily

 

 

 

 

It was a forested mountain about few hundred meters high

 

It was very steep. And the cows were walking very slowly

 

Me and my cousin brother too

 

 

 

My cousin was walking ahead of me 

From time to time I was looking at him

 

 

 

 

Looking up once more

I noticed a big rocky stone about 3-meters high. 

 

Suddenly I heard no noise

No Cows no birds were making any noise

 

I  don't know how to explain this

 

I just felt something is wrong

 

I sensed the danger

 

 

 

Glancing up again I saw something very big sort of brown and black

 

That creature shouted something than sort of pushed a rocky stone and very fast in one big running leap disappeared

 

The rocky stone began to roll towards me and my cousin brother

 

We got afraid and shouted

 

 

 

But I don't know why we didn't run away.

It was like we couldn't move

 

After some time we went up

 

We found the flat place where the stone was

 

 

 

 

No way the stone could be moved very easily from that place! 

 

The place was flat and there were contures of the rocky stone on that place

 

So that rocky stone was on that place for the long time

 

 

 

 

Later when we got to the new camp

I said to my aunt that I saw the very big creature

 

And told her the story

 

My aunt scolded me and forbade ever mention this story to anyone else

 

 

 

 

After seeing that creature I talked to many people in that region

 

 And I have found out that many people met the creatures like the one I saw

 

 

 

But there was the  unwritten law,  forbidding any mentioning of it to the strangers

 

 

 

There are  not the documented samples of the blood or the skin or the  bone of that creature in the museums or the laboratories around the world

 

Nowhere in the world! 

 

 

 

The human civilization does not know much about that creature

 

Only the eyewitnesses

 

 

 

Perhaps one day I will take someone to explore the  Albarsti (Yeti) from the Kyrgyz mountains.
