Official rules for Yeti seekers in Nepal (1959)

According to this 1959 US Embassy document, it costs Rs.500 for a Yeti search expedition permit. You are allowed to photograph or capture a Yeti, but you are not allowed to kill one or shoot it "except in an emergency arising out of self-defense."

  1. Weird that they would want foreign currency. The Nepalese rupee has only been pegged to the Indian rupee since 1993.

  2. That’s why I’m going to Katmandu,

    Up to the mountains where I’m going to,

    And if I ever get out of here that’s what I’m gonna do.
