Known as one of the strangest events that occurred in the human history, the Dyatlov pass is witness to the death of 9 skiers whose deaths cannot be explained till date.
On February 2nd, 1959, on the Otorten Mountains in Russia, a group of 9 skiers led by Igor Dyatlov died at the campsite. Their bodies were discovered on February 26th by a rescue team. Originally, the team consisted of 10 skiers, but on the second day of the journey, Yuri Yudin had to leave due to an illness, making him the only survivor of the trek.
Of the nine skiers, the bodies of two were found near the tree line about a mile away from the campsite. Although the temperature had dropped to minus thirty-six degree Celsius, both the bodies only had their underwear on. Three other bodies were discovered between the campsite and the tree line. What is interesting about these bodies was that one of them had a fractured skull yet the cause of death was determined to be hypothermia by the doctor. This means that the skull was broken after the death of the skier.
The remaining four bodies were found two months later and one had a fractured skull, another had crushed ribs and a third body had crushed ribs and was missing a tongue. The four of them were wearing the clothes of the previous bodies found. When these cloths were tested, they were radioactive. In fact, the entire campsite had traces of radioactivity.
There was no outward trauma to the bodies and the force used on them was said to be too strong for a human. There were no signs of an outsider entering the campsite and even the tents were ripped from the inside.
Nobody knows what had happened during the trek but there are many theories by different people to explain the events that might have occurred.
Some people speculate that an avalanche might have hit the campsite and killed the skiers. This does explain why the tent was cut from the inside and the deaths by hypothermia. It also explains why the bodies were undressed. Paradoxical Undressing is a phenomenon where the disoriented hypothermia victims remove their clothes because their bodies feel like they are burning.
This theory, however, fails to explain the radioactivity and the missing tongue.
According to this theory, a Soviet test missile accidentally hit the campsite. This does explain the inhuman force used. When Yuri Yudin, the lone survivalist of the trek, was shown the campsite, he couldnt recognize some cloth which seemed like it was of military origin, some skies and glasses. This led to the belief that the military had found the bodies before the rescue team and got rid of all the evidence.
However, there was no evidence of an explosion and no record of a missile launch was found.
Some people believe that the deaths of the skiers were due to the Yeti. A two-hour special was also featured on the Discovery channel about the same named Russian Yeti, The Killer Lives. A yeti would explain the inhuman force used.
Other than this there was no evidence ever found for the involvement of the yeti or the existence of the yeti itself.
The most popular theory involves the existence and interference by the aliens. During February/March of 1959, there were several reports of bright flying spears being spotted in the area. Lev Ivanov, the lead investigator, stated that I suspected at that time and am almost sure now that these bright flying spheres had a direct connection to the groups death. Ivanov was ordered by the Soviet officials to close the case. The involvement of aliens will explain the radioactivity and the inhuman force.
In the end, the deaths were said to be caused by an unknown compelling force and the case was shut down. Nobody knows for sure what happened on the Dyatlov pass that led to the death of the nine skiers.
