"The Dyatlov Pass Incident sounds like something out of a movie. Nine skilled young hikers set out with leader Igor Dyatlov to reach the summit of Mount Otorten. They were experts in outdoor survival and serious about their sport, but not so serious that they wouldn't stop and mug for a camera. They set out on trains, trucks, carts, and eventually skis to earn the highest hiking certification. Just as they were about to achieve their goal, disaster struck. Searchers found the bodies of all nine hikers over the next three months, some sporting severe injuries and missing clothes. The tent was slashed open from the inside for a quick escape. But there is no record of what could have panicked the group so much that they would run outside. They fled despite dangerous outdoor conditions, dying of hypothermia and injury. The night the hikers died was the night a mystery was born…"

Check out the Khamar-Daban Incident in 1993. Even stranger because it had a survivor who witnessed the whole thing.

I blame beans.

I've seen convincing, if conjectural, explanations of the Dyatlov incident. But as Perris says, the Khamar Daban incident is super strange, and I've yet to hear a good theory on what happened.

Strangely enough, CGI animation used to create snow in the movie "Frozen" may have solved the mystery of the Dyatlov Incident.

Interesting. I personally have never bought into the avalanche theory.

Nor have I, Perris. If an avalanche was the culprit, why wouldn't the Soviets quickly state "case closed." It would have been a readily believable solution to the incident. Instead, they come up with "unknown compelling force."
