In Search of Yeti, an adventurous Nepali movie, moves around the ancient ethnic and indigenous groups in the Himalayas of Nepal, natural disasters in the region and the thrilling struggle with the Yeti. De fact, the persistance lies in wicked ambition of mankind to gain victory over the nature, the movie’s official website depicts.
