Dead Mountain: The Untold True Story of the Dyatlov Pass Incident
Regarding sleeping well, I got the impression, at least from this book, that this case haunted him for the remainder of his life.
However you interpret it — I got the same vibe as you reading that quote. I felt the author was setting him up to be a corrupt party official who would hinder the investigation. I didn’t feel this to be the case at all by the books conclusion. (less) (hide spoiler)]
I find this incident to be one of the most haunting unsolved mysteries of all-time.
In February of 1959, nine experienced hikers set out on a challenging back-packing excursion in the Russian Ural Mountains. Ultimately, one lone hiker survived, but only because he departed early due to medical complications.
The young people involved were all college age, with the exception of one, and were ...more
That really is the question in this book. In 1959 a group of nine experienced (7 men/ 2 women) hikers in the Russian Ural Mountains died mysteriously in an area known as Dead Mountain. Their deaths have remained a mystery. ...more
I was completely unfamiliar with what has become to be known as The Dyatlov Pass Incident and I immediately wanted to find out what I could about this chilling unsolved mystery so I began to Google any and all information and that search brought me to this book which just happened to be available at my lo ...more
This is one creepy-ass unsolved mystery, and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it. The true story of the Dyatlov Pass Incident and the inexplicable deaths of nine experienced hikers is one of those strange but true tales that leaves a person shuddering from the heebie-jeebies.
Remote and inhospitable Ural Mountains, Russia. February 1959.
A group of nine university students -- 7 men, 2 women -- set up their tent for the evening.

Thank you to Mr Donnie Eichar for finally satisfying my curiosity on the Story of the Dyatlov Pass Incident. I had come across this story on a couple of occasions but had very little information on it and was so glad to have located this book while searching for a completely different book on the internet

But I'm not sure if I'm satisfied with the conclusion of his theory. And I'm a little disappointed that he spent all that time laying out the timelines but his actual theory on what happened was only discussed in the last 20 pages or so. H ...more
This book is for you if… a significant amount of your brainpower has been used to analyse and over-think what happened to the 9 experienced hikers in that night that connected February 1st and 2nd of 1959 in the Ural Mountains. You will not find wild and unscientific speculations, but facts and science. Mystery and true crime fans will devour this - and if you're one of them, you've probably heard of this incident already anyways.
I am very happy about th ...more
In this riveting and informative non-fiction read, Documentary Filmmaker and Author, Donnie Eichar, pieces together the mystery of WHY nine young experienced Russian hikers left their tent after dark without shoes or proper clothing in sub-zero temperatures back in 1956. It was determined that six died of hypothermia, the remaining three of brutal injuries......one even missing a tongue, but.......WHAT REALLY HAPPENED?
Eichar does a great job of investigating and succinct...more
We are fragile beings. The camaraderie of a group, their emotions, their smiles only last so long: Through photographs, the eternal message of latter days.
When a book stays on your mind continuously for several days, you have to then try to reason why. Why am I still thinking about this? Why does it seem to affect me more in the long run than when I initially read it?
Humans, as a whole, are curious; the search for knowledge is innate and a troublesome curmudgeon, never letting go. When there is ...more
"In savage winter conditions, and over a vast stretch of ground, all nine fought for their own and one another's lives with the bravery and endurance worthy of Grade III hikers. It was a distinction they would never earn, but one that each of them so rightly deserved."
In January 1959, ten young but seasoned hikers set off from Yekaterinburg, Russia, where most of them were engineering students at a local college, on a trek through the treacherous Ural mountains. One came home early due to heath ...more
1. A LARGE chunk of the book was devoted to the author telling his own story about traveling to Russia, preparing to hike the Ural Mountains, and other stuff not too related to the mystery surrounding the Dyatlov Pass incident. The reason I read this book, and probably the reason a lot of other people read this book, is ...more
In February of 1959, a group of young but experienced hikers embarked on a track through the Ural mountains in Russia, never to return. Over the months that follow, their bodies are located one by one, painting a confusing and horrifying picture of the events that affected the group. A frenzied escape from the safety of their camp wearing little more than underwear, curious evidence like clothes emitting radiation and injuries that seem to defy explanation… All of this has made ...more

I researched the story on the internet, but unfortunately all I got were crackpot theories about UFOs and Yetis. The lack of hard facts annoyed me and that's why I was so eager to read this book.
And I have to say, this was a rare case for me when a book did meet my expectations.
So here it goes....
Nine experienced hikers die in the Ural Mountains. What's really unusual though, is that they cut their ...more
