June 3rd, 2016

Kyrgyzstan is a country with unique touristic, cultural and historical potential. To invite international tourists to visit Kyrgyzstan its Post has introduced original amusing stamps depicting the Yeti ‒ a peculiar character, well known around the world. encourages our readers to appreciate the original design of these peculiarly interesting philatelic items.

There is hardly a person in the world who has never heard the legends of this mountain monster. As for Kyrgyzstan, for a long time people from this area have been telling stories about the so-called "Kyik-Adam" and "Zhapaii-Adam". And no wonder, because these legendary creatures are believed to have lived, and still live right in the mountains of our geographical area (Tian Shan, Pamir, Himalayas).

This may be the reason why, since ancient times, Kyrgyz folklore has had so many legends about Yeti. Moreover, there are many accounts from various people who claim to have seen, with their own eyes, the Yeti himself or his huge footprints.

By issuing these stamps, KEP, in an amusing manner, invites international tourists to visit Kyrgyzstan and get to know the ancient culture of the hospitable people, enjoy the splendid landscapes, relax by the beautiful mountain lakeside of Issyk-Kul, spend some time skiing at one of the best ski resorts ‒ Karakol. And, when you are high in the mountains, maybe (why not!), you will be able to see the legendary Yeti!
