Air from 'a cave where Yetis live' goes on sale in Siberia

By The Siberian Times reporter

If you can't come here, at least you can breathe the crystal clear air.

Entrepreneurs have canned the air from Azasskaya Cave, the location of supposed sightings of fabled Yetis, known to some as Bigfoot or the Abominable Snowman.

Air was also canned from Zelenaya Mountain, the centrepiece of Siberia's leading ski resort of Sheregesh in Kemerovo region.

Vladimir Makuta, head of the local Tashtagol district, said the areas are 'famous for stunning mountain scenery and crystal-clear air'. The air is 'full of goodness and has a healing effect, helping to strengthen the immunity and positively impact of  the mental state'.

The cost of a breath of fresh Siberian air - 200 roubles, around $3 or £2.

Sightings of Yetis - or some other giant hairy creatures - are not uncommon in the Shor National Park, site of the Azasskaya Cave, though many dispute them. The cave is 18 kilometres from Ust-Kabyrza village.
