    Default The Dyatlov Pass Incident

    I saw this on one of The Ancient Alien Episodes recently, Did some research! Very Interesting to say the least. Have a read Avie's. A Video Enclosed On Bottom.

    The story sounds like something out of a low-budget horror movie: nine young students go on a skiing holiday in Russia’s Ural Mountains but never return. Eventually, their bodies are discovered – five of them frozen to death near their tent, four more bearing mysterious injuries – a smashed head, a missing tongue – buried in the snow some distance away. All, it seems, had fled in sudden terror from their camp in the middle of the night. Casting aside skis, food and warm coats, they dashed headlong down a snowy slope toward a thick forest, where they stood no chance of surviving bitter temperatures of around –30º C (–22º F). At the time, seemingly baffled investigators offered the non-explanation that the group had died as a result of “a compelling unknown force” – and then simply closed the case and filed it as ‘Top Secret’.

    After half a century, the mystery remains. What was the nature of the deadly “unknown force”? Were the Soviet authorities hiding something? And, if so, exactly what were they were attempting to cover up? In the intervening years, a number of solutions have been put forward, involving everything from hostile tribes and abominable snowmen to aliens and secret military technology.

    “If I had a chance to ask God just one question, it would be: ‘What really happ­ened to my friends that night?’” says Yury Yudin, the 10th member of the fateful expedition and its only sur­vivor. Yudin had become ill and turned back a few days into the trip. The fate of his friends remains a painful mystery – one which he has attempted to investigate himself.

    THE EXPEDITION
    Yudin and his nine companions had set out on their journey on 23 January 1959, their destination Otorten Mountain in the northern Urals. He and eight of the others were students from the Ural Polytechnic Institute in Ekaterinburg, located in the Sverdlovsk region, 1,200 miles (1,900km) east of Moscow.

    Back then, the city was still called Sverdlovsk, and was best remembered as the place where the Tsar and his family were brutally murdered after the Russian Revolution (it was named after the Bolshevik party leader Yakov Sverdlov, who had himself played a role in the killings). In 1959, the Soviet Union was in the middle of a thaw of sorts after decades of Stalinist repression, and life under the new premier, Nikita Khruschev, was becoming somewhat freer. The 1950s saw, for one thing, an explosion of ‘sport tourism’ in Russia as the country started to move away from the austerity of the immed­iate post-war years. A mixture of skiing, hiking and adventure, sport tourism was more than simply a sporting activity in the Soviet Union – for the inhabitants of this closed and regimented society it was a way of escaping the repressive strictures of everyday life, of returning to nature, and of spending time with a circle of close friends, away from the prying eyes of the state. Such activities were hugely popular with students, who would set out on long trips to some of the wildest and remotest parts of the Soviet Union.

    The group from the Ural Polytechnic Institute was made up of experienced members of the college’s sport tourism club, led by 23-year-old Igor Dyatlov, respected for his expertise in cross-country skiing and mountaineering. Their route to Otorten, which would see them reaching heights of 1,100m (3,600ft) above sea level, was classed as ‘Category III’ – the most dangerous for the time of year – but the combined experience of the students meant that there was nothing unusual in their undertaking such an expedition.

    Aside from Dyatlov and Yudin, the group was made up of Georgy Krivonischenko (24), Yury Doroshenko (24), Zina Kolmogorova (22), Rustem Slobodin (23), Nicolas Thibeaux-Brignollel (24), Ludmila Dubinina (21), Alexander Kolevatov (25) and Alexander Zolotaryov (37). All were students of the Institute, except the much older Zolotaryov, who some sources suggest was a slightly strange figure whom Dyatlov was init­ially reluctant to take on the expedition. But Zolotaryov had proved himself a highly experi­enced sport tourist and came with a recommendation from some of Dyatlov’s friends.

    So, on 23 January the party of 10 set off on what was meant to be a three-week cross-country trip. They travelled by train to Ivdel, arriving on 25 January, and then onwards by truck to Vizhai – the last inhabited settlement before the snow-covered wilderness between them and Otorten. They began their trek on 27 January. On the 28th, however, Yudin became ill and had to turn back, leaving the party of nine to go on without him. It was the last time he saw his companions alive. The course of events following Yudin’s departure can only be reconstructed from the diaries and photographs left by the rest of the group and retrieved from the area where they made their final camp.

    Having left Yudin behind, the group skied on across uninhabited areas and frozen lakes, following the paths of the local indigenous tribe, the Mansi, for another four days. On 31 January, they reached the river Auspia, where they set up a base at the edge of the highland area, leaving equipment and food there for the return journey. From here, they began climbing the pass toward Otorten on 1 February. For whatever reason – most likely bad weather conditions causing them to become lost – they found themselves on the slopes of the mountain Kholat Syakhl at a height of just below 1,100m (3,600ft). Here, at around 5pm, they pitched their tent for the night, although by going just 1.5km (almost a mile) down the mountain they could have found shelter from the harsh elements in a forest.

    Their last diary entries show that the students were in good spirits; they even produced their own newspaper – the Evening Otorten – a typically Soviet way of group bonding. The next day, they planned to continue on to the mountain, just 10km (six miles) to the north, before returning to their base camp.

    Well, interesting video !

    I kept a point in my mind... it seem that the natives are used to see "orange ball" in the sky without any dead since long time... so maybe the lads showed maybe violence. Did they have guns (probably for wild animals and hunting) ? They observing little light, take a rifle, shoot them to see what it is, as a simple human would do. And BAM ! They're dead.

    I don't understand why them and not the natives you see my point ? Natives = more respectful of life ?

    The ancient legend is interesting to... but after the flood and if you survive, you can show violence if they are not coming to help you... so again... BAM and they're dead. Simple and probable.

    Nobody went their since the incident ? Could be a nice place to do camping and to do stuff... why not, i love trekking

    Yes you probably right. But the way they've been killed is important and why not the ball, foo fighter like, going through the body and killing them... burning, irradiating, ... the tong is maybe a little snack (chocking, but why not ?)... a tongue is probably good to eat if you consider the beef tongue for exple... very good meal.

    I personally experienced crappy things and scary in camping, and i never go outside... NEVER ! So, something happened for them to go outside... When i trek, always alone, the wind is doing sometime amazing imitation... totally stunning.

    What is your theory White Feather, or your idea if you extrapolates with the element ?

    Edit* I'll check which episode and how far into it the clips are when I get home. .. Looks like something entered or blocked the entrance of the tent, the occupants freaked and cut thier way out..if the entrance was sealed off this would have been my reaction....

    I supose if something was hoving over the tent and collapsed it, cuting your way out would be the option too..

    The youtube link works for me in the US, this is an excerpt from the show ancient aliens recounting an event that supposedly took place decades ago. The youtube poster as added his own comments to the video and says that he has it posted on his website (along with other videos) and instructs viewers to check it out by saying "type 'alienspaceshipidendified' into google's search engine". Maybe you should try that and see if you can find the vid there. I'm going to check out his site now

    Holy cow, I think these ET's were not the good ones I was told about. That is a brutal way to die, I feel sorry for the souls. Anyone knows how to read Akashic records? The answer to 'Who has done it' is in there.

    What do people think about this "conventional" explanation?

    #6. The Dyatlov Pass Incident

    On February 2nd, 1959, during the cold winter on Kholat Syakhl ("Mountain of the Dead") in Russia, nine intrepid ski hikers decided to do what they do best, which is ski hike, whatever the hell that is. On February 26th, the first of their very dead bodies turned up. Man, who would have thought such a tragedy could strike on "The Mountain of the Dead?"

    It probably didn't look like this, but can you imagine?
    But it was the discovery of the campgrounds that added the icing to the creepy-as-**** cake. The ski hikers' tent was shredded. The skiers were scattered around the grounds wearing either very sparse clothing or just their underwear. Three of them were found with crushed ribs and fractured skulls, but no visible defense marks or other signs of a struggle.

    Oh yeah, and one of the bodies was missing a tongue.
    In case you weren't already on the phone with Mulder and Scully, trace levels of radiation were supposedly found on their bodies. The official statement on what happened was about as vague and ass-covering as possible, saying it was caused by an "unknown compelling force." In laymen's terms this means, "**** if we know."
    The story has become an internet sensation over the years, with many people blaming aliens, and then ghosts, and then the yeti, or possibly all of them working in tandem.

    "So we're agreed then: We tear up their tents, take a lady's tongue, and never tell a soul."
    The Obvious Answer:
    So there's six things that freak people out about this one:
    1. The no-tongued woman
    2. A mysterious orange tan on the dead bodies
    3. The ripped tents
    4. The hikers' lack of clothing
    5. The crushing damage done to three of the hikers
    6. The traces of radioactivity
    The big fact that gets lost in the re-telling of this story is that the bodies weren't found until weeks later. It's not like somebody turned their back, then five minutes later all their friends were dead and half naked.

    That makes the missing tongue a lot easier to explain. As disturbing as it may be, the first thing a scavenging animal is going to go for is probably the soft tissue of an open mouth, especially if it still smelled like the burrito the hiker just ate. Laying out in the sun surrounded by white snow for days also accounts for the weird tan.
    The trauma and the destroyed tent points to an avalanche. Their state of undress can be explained by paradoxical undressing, a known behavior of hypothermia victims when their brains start to freeze and malfunction. In other words, it's the kind of behavior you'd expect from a group of injured avalanche victims wandering around in the middle of the night in the freezing cold.

    What about the radioactivity? Or stranger details that turn up in some accounts, like orange lights in the sky? Well, there's the fact that none of that stuff turns up in the original documents from the incident, and appears to have been added later by people who just can't resist making things spookier than they are.
    It's those later accounts that have stuck in the public memory, because so many of the original reports were destroyed (this was the Cold War-era Soviet Union, which treated casserole recipes as state secrets).
    So none of the details on their own prove anything other than a tragic hiking accident. The conspiracy-loving public widely reject this, too busy lighting their torches and getting their pitchforks to go hunt down an, "unknown compelling force."

    Otherwise known as "snow."
