Who is N. A. Tombazi?

N.A. Tombazi was a Greek photographer and geologist who on a British Geological Expedition in 1925 apparently sighted a Yeti creature at 15,000 feet in the Himalayas of Tibet.

Later, Tombazi would state:

"Unquestionably, the figure in outline was exactly like a human being, walking upright and stopping occasionally to uproot or pull at some dwarf rhododendron bushes. It showed up dark against the snow and as far as I could make out, wore no clothes."

About two hours later, Tombazi and his companions descended the mountain, and saw what they took to be the creature's prints, described as "similar in shape to those of a man, but only six to seven inches long by four inches wide.... The prints were undoubtedly those of a biped."

Tombazi was a member of the Royal Geographical Society

He himself then wrote a book about it called "Account of a Photographic Expedition to the Southern Glaciers of Kangchenjunga in the Sikkim Himalaya"

N.A. Tombazi did not believe in the yeti, thinking the figure he saw, a travelling hermit.
