Geography of the Gilgamesh travels; Part 1: The route to the Mountain of Cedars

Prof. Emilio Spedicato

In this part of the paper, we consider Gilgamesh trip to the Mountain of Cedars. We claim that such region is to be identified not with present Lebanon, but with Kashmir. We also propose that hubaba was a yeti and that Enkidu may have been the son of a female yeti and of the sumerian hunter who introduced him to Gilgamesh.
