Has this trekker found footprints of the Yeti?

Are these the footprints of the yeti? Trekker believes mystery trail spotted in remote area of the Himalayas could come from the legendary beast 

Instead, he believes they were left by a gorilla-like animal as it carefully picked its way across the steep, snow-covered slope. The tracks were spotted on Gangkhar Puensum, the world’s highest unclimbed mountain, when Mr Berry’s Bhutanese guide spotted them 200 yards away across an impassable chasm in October 2014.Mr Berry, 66, who lives near Badminton in South Gloucestershire, said: ‘The local people said we were the first to ever set foot on that pass. ‘I had always thought that stories about the yeti were a bit of old bunkum. But there is no denying these tracks existed. ‘The prints were clearly visible with the naked eye from where we were standing on a pass at 17,800ft.‘There was a vertical drop in front of us, not to mention a very serious mountainside to cross, so we could not get to them.’
