dyatlovpass: Many people have written about this incident as it's not only a real mystery but remains, to this day, unsolved.
It happened during the night of 2nd February, 1959, in the northern Ural Mountains on a mountain known as Kholat Syakhl. The mountain's name comes from the language of the endangered indigenous Mansi people of Russia. And it's a language that is, in many ways, very similar to Hungarian. A translation of the mountain's name means Mountain of the Dead, so it's somewhat chilling that the incident should have occurred there. Because it happened the event has come to be known as the Dyatlov Pass incident after the name of the leader of the group to which it happened.
