During the Vietnam war soldiers reported seeing a large ape-like bipedal creature they called “Rock Apes“. These creatures closely resembled that of Bigfoot or Sasquatch although somewhat smaller often described as approx 6ft tall.
Many believe this creature is a yet undiscovered cryptid much like the North American Bigfoot. Both American and Vietnamese soldiers reported Rock Ape sightings and encounters mostly in the deep forests of Laos and Vietnam.
These creatures are known as the jungle people or the forest people across Southeast Asia where sightings have been reported for years. Here is a great video by Paranormal Junkie on the Rock Ape and some of the stories and encounters reported by the soldiers during the war. Could these creatures be elusive cryptids closely related to what many of us know as Bigfoot? Could these Vietnam Bigfoot sightings be important pieces of Bigfoot evidence that have been more or less overlooked over the years?
