Hello Andrew and welcome
You mention the Denisovans developed the ability to exist both at very high altitudes, and also in extremely cold conditions
From a article about a to program
Yetis! The myth has endured for centuries, but despite its longevity, there are really only two sides of the debate you can sit on. In the boringly scientific camp: those who believe that all sightings come from gassed idiots who don’t know nature when they see it. In the other, fantastical unsolved mysteries camp, are those with more of a swivel-eyed crypto-conspiracy angle. The latter sort of claptrap is typically absent in mainstream science and nature documentaries and, frankly, the genre is poorer for it. But now, Mark Evans combines both sides in beautiful geeky harmony in Yeti: Myth, Man Or Beast?
Evans is exactly the man to take these conflicting arguments and forge an almost-serious documentary out of them. He has the sensible air of a substitute teacher well up for some staffroom biscuit banter. He knows big words and says them with authority, yet also has a leather jacket. Like I say, perfect for the job. As far as Evans is concerned, the yeti doesn’t have to be mythical: it could be a polar bear hybrid or a relic of the Denisova hominin, a branch of human long thought to be extinct. Such a theory is at the very forefront of scientific thinking – geneticists only started focusing on Denisovan DNA six years ago.

in the yeti program mark sugests if for what ever reason a a race could survive cut off from everyone else. he puts forward the idea a lost group denisovans up in the Himalayas which are suggested to be the reason for the yeti.
from the book ancient traces by michael baigent
in 1995 a team French and British explorers were making their way across a remote region in tibet when they found their way blocked by an unseasonally early snow fall. the detoured through a valley that had not been mapped before and found to their surprise it was filled with large trees which protected several heards of small horses which were about four foot high with wedge shaped heads, the leader of the expedition said that they look like the horse depicted in prehistoric cave paintings in france and spain.
evidence suggests that the Denisovans are related to an even earlier type of hominin known as Homo heidelbergensis, whose remains found in South Africa are regularly over 2.13 in height.iv Although no further remains of Denisovans have since been confirmed, various skulls found in China in particular have been linked with this extinct hominin.v In addition, the massive jawbone of a large individual found by fishermen in the Penghu Channel, 25 kilometers off the coast of Taiwan,vi is now being cited as possibly that of a Denisovan.vii This extraordinary mandible is around 200,000 years old. It is extremely robust with unusually large molars and premolars,
Could these be skulls of denisovans
