Animal Kingdom Theme Spotlight: The Yeti Shrine

Asia at Disney's Animal Kingdom is actually 2 separate lands or villages. There is Anandapur, home to the Jungle Trek, the Yak & Yeti, Kali River Rapids, and Serka Zong, the home of Expedition Everest. A path joins to the two, and this small shrine with old ruins is one of the most photographed spots on the trail.


As you can see, visitors have left some offerings like fruit and carved animals. This shrine was built to appease the Yeti of the mountains behind it. And the shrine was constructed along the road to the Forbidden Mountain next to old ruins.


But the shrine's shape is the most interesting thing about it. By looking at this picture and the one below, you will the shrine was built in the shape of the mountains viewed in the distance. Another attempt to appease the beast living within it.


As an aside, the big moutain is NOT Everest. That is the Forbidden Mountain, home of the Yeti, the subject of the shrine. Everest is the smaller mountain to the right, the one you want to reach by crossing the Yeti's home.

  1. I am still a student so i live a very stressful life. I am often busy doing homework or working on some school stuff. I often ask for help though. For example, the pile of write-ups and reports that I needed to accomplish was like impossible to finish on my own so I delegated some of the tasks to my two big sisters, my friends and some, to paid professionals. Most of the writing assignments I had was done by the www.galaxyessay.com/ the internet has to offer. Of course, amidst all the help that I got, I was still able to work on things on my own for the most part. And with that, a road trip with friends plus some exciting activities, like trail riding, is like the total stress reliever, making me and of course my friends, free from the worries and stresses of school life.
