"Kunga" the Snow Yeti
"Kunga" the snow yeti is shy, wise, and magical. Ritoma nomads are familiar with yetis and are quite sure that, unlike wolves, they will not snatch their sheep or yaks or eat their children. Spotting one is rare, since they are more elusive than marmots, and certainly less noisy. They are not nearly as big as described in European literature or have any history of frightening travelers. Yetis are friendly, shy and playful. They live in rocky areas high in the pasture and mostly keep to themselves.
