Metoh Kangmi

Alternate name for the YeTI of Central Asia.

Etymology: Kangmi (a contracted form of gongs mi) is Sherpa (Sino-Tibetan) for "snow or glacier man." Metoh is an unknown or corrupt word, though Ram Kumar Panday says it means "unwashed." Swami Pranavananda claims metoh means "abominable" and is a variant of Mi-Teh, which he defines as "man-bear" because the creature can walk bipedally; he says the term refers to the red or isabelline variety of the Brown bear (Ursos arctos). In modern Tibetan, mi sdug means "disgusting." See ABOMINABLE

Snowman.
