Mysterious True Incident Paves the Way for Intriguing Story

The Dyatlov Pass Incident (as it is later known) is an actual mystery that occcurred in the Ural Mountains of the then Soviet Union. During the night of February 1, 1959, in the Siberian wilderness, nine experienced Russian hikers slashed open their tent from the inside and ran into a blizzard without proper attire. Interestingly enough, not all of the hikers died of hypothermia. One of the hikers was actually missing her tongue. An investigation by the Russian government concluded that an “unknown compelling force” had caused the deaths. But what was the force? Theories include animal attacks, hypothermia, avalanche, attack by Mansi people (indigenous folk of the region), or some type of military accident. The place where they died is called Kholat Syakhl by the Mansi – Mountain of the Dead.
