Im not sure when this photo was taken.


The chimney is at the top gable end, its held up with rope and the ski poles are used to hold the tent up.


When Sharavin and Slobtsov found the damage tent one skipole was cut in three pieces the top part and notch in the bamboo, plus other skipoles was broken...


For this to happen something or someone needed to fall on the tent, but this doesn't account for the cut skipole...

Doroshenko and Krivonischenko lay near the cedar tree...


One searcher named Vladimir Askinadzi said that Kurnikov the Mansi noticed branches which was thin size of a finger was spread around and lead towards the ravine, like the hikers had been dragging branches to the ravine like a trail...


The branches lead to the shelter which was close to where the four was found in the ravine...


When they found Zolotarav in the ravine a note book and pencil was in his hand.


One looked at the book and said slug, the book was not seen again, it was rather the pencil writing was destroyed through water or the book was empty...

In 2013 a group of experimented hikers including camera crew and leading the team was Yuri Kuntsevich head of Dyatlov foundation.


They experimented setting the tent up on the spot where the original tent was.


They found it very hard in the same condition, plus leaving iceprints in 28 below temperatures.


Next day the winds blow all traces away...


But the photo in 1959 iceprints stayed for two weeks???

A few years ago a camera crew went to the slope in the same condition and temperature.


They did a test and walked on the slope leaving ice form snowprints.


The first photo is said to be the hikers photo 1959...


The second photo was taken in 2013, minus 28 the same temperature as 1 feb 1959...


The next day the 2013 iceprints was gone through heavy winds and snow?


But the ones taken in 1959 was left for two weeks or more.


Could it be possible that the 1959 iceprints was left just before the rescuers came...


The photo is the team who did the experiment...

24 January - 59 years to the day
January 24, 1959 In the city of Serov from 7-8 am until 18:30.
The train station, the incident - the detention of Yuri Krivonischenko, the 41st school, the story of tourism to schoolchildren of 1st and 2nd grade.
By train to Ivdel.
Incident in a train with a drunk passenger*.
*On the train from Serov to Ivdel, a drunken passenger came to the group, stating that they had stolen a bottle of vodka from him and demanded to return it.
He was simply ignored, although the physically fit hikers could have easily confronted him.
The drunken passenger insisted on his rights and initiated a scandal.
As a result, the conductor had to take the loaded citizen causing the disturbance to the police at the station.
This incident is interesting not only for what was noted in the diaries, but also for the record that the Dyatlov himself made when preparing list of provisions for the trek.
Yuri Yudin could not get alcohol and Igor made a record; vodka, indian tea (illegible) matches.
If for some reason the hikers did not buy vodka, then it is possible that one of them could actually have stolen from the drunk passenger.
This is just a speculation.
City of Serov - Palace of Culture of Metallurgist
Monument of Serov, Alexander Kolevatov

Dyatlov Group diary



Yuri Yudin diary



January 24 7.00 (am)
We arrived in Serov (town).
We traveled with a Blinov's group.
They have... things for hunting and other accessories.
At the station we were met with hell of a hospitality.
They didn't allow us into the building.
The policeman stares at us suspiciously.
There is no crime or vandalism in the city, as it suppose to be in times of communism.
And then Yuri Krivo started a song, the cops grabbed him and took him away.
At the attention of citizen Krivonischenko, sergeant explained that the rules of §3 prohibited all activity that would disturb the peace of passengers.
It is perhaps the only train station where the songs are forbidden, so we stayed without singing.
Finally everything is settled by end fo the day.
We are leaving Serov to Ivdel at 6:30 pm.
We were welcomed warmly in the school near the railway station.
The steward (she is also a janitor) boiled some water, and helped us with everything we needed for the preparation for the trek.
We have the whole day free.
We want to go to the city, to visit the nature museum or take a trip to a factory, but too much time is passed in distribution of equipment and cleaning it.
12.00 In the interval between 1st and 2nd shifts in school we organized meeting with pupils.
The room crammed with so many curious children.
Zolotoryov: "Kids, I will tell you now... Tourism is, enables you to..."
Everyone is still, quiet, engaged.
Z. Kolmogorova: Tra- ta- ta- ta, what's your name, you went where, owesome, you have been camping, she went on and on...
Questions didn't end.
We had to explain and show to every kid everything, from torches to tents.
It took us 2 hours, and kids didn't want to let us go.
They sang songs to each other.
The whole school saw us at the station.
Everything ended as expected, when we were leaving, the kids yelled and cried, asking Zina to stay with them.
They promised to behave and study well.
In the train cart a young drunk accused us of stealing his booze from his pocket.
For the second time this day the cops were involved.
Discussion about love provoked by Z. Kolmogorova.
Songs, reassessment, Dubinina under the seats, garlic with bread and no water, and we arrived in Ivdel around 12 am.
Large waiting room.
Total freedom of action.
We took shifts to watch over our stuff all night long.
Bus to Vizhay leaves early in the morning.
Juri Yudin writing in Dyatlov Group diary

Unknown diary (could be Zolotoryov's)



January 24, 1959
Last night, about 9-00 we boarded the train №43.
At last.
There is 10 of us.
Bienko Slavik did not go, they did not let him.
We are going with a Blinov group.
Around 8 am we arrived in Serov.
We were not allowed to stay on the train station, the train to Ivdel is at 6-30 pm.
We are looking for a room.
We are trying to get into the club (to the right of the dining room of the station) and school, but fail.
Finally he (? not sure about the identity) finds school number 41 (about 200 meters from the train station), where we were very well received.

Ludmila Dubinina diary



24 january went to bed We arrived in Serov very early.
We were not allowed in the station with the backpacks.
We settled nearby the station.
The boys cross the overseer, that's me, with accusations of stinginess and greed.
Alas, the canteen at this point is a great luxury for us.
There was one small incident - Yurka K. was taken by the police charging him with deception.
Our hero decided to walk around the station handing a cap for change after singing a song.
Yuri had to be rescued.
Then we managed to move to the elementary school together with Blinov group.
After lunch we began to prepare the equipment.
Decided to read talk to the children in 1st and 2nd grades about tourism.
They liked our stories and things very much, and they became very attached to us.
Time flew by till 6 pm in the company of our new young friends.
The children bonded so much, especially to Zina, that they parted with tears.
In the train we all sang songs accompanied with a mandolin and just like that.
Then out of the blue a young alcoholic came to the boys and accused them of stealing a bottle of vodka.
He demanded her return and promised to punch them in the teeth.
In the end, he did not prove or get anything and got lost.
Yurka came and sang with us for a while and left.
We sang and sang, and no one even noticed how we started to discuss love issues, talking about kisses in particular.
We talked all kinds of nonsense, of course; everyone was interested, everyone wanted to speak out, eventually trying to out-shout each other and prove their own opinion.
Sasha Kolevatov was the best in our debates.
Probably he expressed not only his own thoughts but, anyway, he obviously won.
We arrived at night in Ivdel and bunked at the station.
We settled in the corner, spreading the tent, and laid down to sleep at once.
I stayed watch.
I used the time to sew overshoes and copy songs.
Yurkina Olva from time to time shouted probably from boredom and hunger.
I lasted till 3 am.
At that time I lay down, only Borya continue to sew something for a long time, but he finally retire.
Zhenya (Yevgeny Zinoviev) often picks on me, sometimes he even says offensive things.
He seem to consider me foolish.
It's my fault that I like to add fuel to the fire, damn me.

Zinaida Kolmogorova diary



Here we are on a trek again.
Now in Serov.
The entire evening yesturday till 3 AM we sang songs.
With us is sr. instructor of the Kaurov sport base Alexander Zolotaryov.
He knows a lot of songs, it's just happy somehow that we are learning new songs.
Especially some the Zumba and others.
Today I feel little sad. But it's nothing.
We are on duty with Rustik.
We went and talked to the schoolchildren, then they all saw us off, even burst into tears, didn't want to let us go.

25 January - 59 years to the day


The night of January 25 Dyatlov Group arrives in Ivdel located 340 km North of their starting point.
Leaving early in the morning in bus Gas-51 with Blinov group. 14:00 Vizhay.
Stayed at a guest house.
Parting with Blinov group, watch movie "Symphonie in Gold"
Bus from Ivdel to Vizhay - Doroshenko, Zina, Krivonishenko (center), Zolotaryov

Dyatlov Group diary



25 january 1959.
We got up at half past five, quickly gathered and left for the city of Ivdel with the first bus.
After an hour of waiting, we managed to grab a bus (such as GAZ-51).
The twenty-five-seater bus was forced to accommodate a full twenty-five plus twenty backpacks packed to capacity and as many pairs of skis.
We were full up to the ceiling.
First layer passengers sat on the seats, on a pile of skis, on backpacks.
Second layer passengers sat on the backs of the seats, finding a place for legs on the shoulders of comrades.
It was not so tight, however, as not to sing, so we did it almost all the way to Vizhay.
The trip was not uneventful.
The bus made a small detour away from the highway, in the village of Shipichnoe, and we were given the chance to step out, which we did with pleasure.
Four of the most agile went far ahead to the settlement of Talitsa to see the power station.
Suddenly the heard: "The bus."
We rush out the door, but, alas, it was too late.
The bus passed by and we were forced to chance after it as fast as we can, hoping fate would be merciful and, perhaps, we would catch up with it (I am part of the "agile" four).
However, the first hundred meters clearly demonstrated the advantages of a fifty horse power engine.
Our heels flashed far behind the bus, and the gap widened.
The prospect to walk about thirty kilometers on the highway with no breakfast and lunch already seemed quite real, when suddenly ...
I mentioned that fate is merciful.
The mercy came in the form of a girl going to Vizhay that hailed the bus and stopped the object of our persecution.
A minute later we were already safely sitting on the second floor of the seats and traveling to Vizhay.
We arrived in Vizhay about two pm.
It turned out that we can continue our automobile journey in the next morning.
Warmly said goodbye to Blinov's group, who went further (to the west of Vizhay in the deep forest area).
After dinner, which was held in a warm "friendly atmosphere," we moved to the "hotel", which was the usual hut with three windows.
We went to the cinema, leaving "home" Doroshenko and Kolevatov.
We watched the "Symphonie in Gold", came back in "musical mood".
Now we are busy getting ready the equipment.
Tonight, according to the local commandant, we will leave on. Kolevatov.

Zinaida Kolmogorova diary


25.1.59 arrived in Ivdel at midnight, spent the night at the train station pitching a tent on the floor.
Yes, we have already been spotted 2 times by the police.
Once Yuri Kriv was taken to the police station.
He wanted to raise money for candy.
It was funny.
Then on the train Serov-Ivdel reached Ivdel, spent the night at the station, in the morning got on a bus, drove to a hotel in Ivdel.
Then we took the bus and drove off.
We are 20 people, backpacks and skis.
Had to pile up on 3 levels, but we sang songs all the way.
Arrived in Vizhay.
First we stopped at the same club where we were 2 years ago.
Then we were taken to the hotel.
The whole evening there was a discussion about love about friendship, about dances and other things, etc.
I talked a lot about things which are completely unfamiliar to me and I scarcely do, but I tried, sincerely.
But this is all nonsense.
But again the words of Volt come to mind.
How well did he say it.
We went to see "Symphonie in Gold" so powerful!
So great!

Ludmila Dubinina diary


25 january
We woke up, without really to have slept much.
I told Rustic that I won't wash up due to lack of conditions.
He agreed.
The bus came right away, we climbed quickly.
Had to travel on 3 levels.
Kolka Tibo (Nikolai Thibeaux-Brignolles) had to push his body to the ceiling, Olva first stood in (illegible word) position, but soon she couldn't stand it anymore and got down on her knees.
We sang again, of course.
I totally lost my voice.
Zhenka was bickering again.
He goes on and on.
Things stated to make sence, it wasn't really a knew, but it is now clearer and better.
But despite this, Yurka is still a good-natured person, at least, judging by his behavior.
I'm still true to myself.
Zhenka and Zina sang "If you eyes hadn't been blue..." ("Если б были глаза твои не такие синие...")
When we arrived at а turn the bus went to a village and had to return for us in an hour.
We continue on foot.
It was so nice to walk along the road in such good weather.
We went a little nuts and roll in the snow.
During our walk there was an incident - a car coming from the forest got stuck in the opposite direction.
Our guys rushed to the rescue.
Finally they pulled it out in half.
Then our bus came up and we hopped on it.
The discussion now was about happiness.
Basically our guys were the most active.
They tried to give a definition of happiness, but everyone had it its own way.
Arrived in Vizhay at four two.
Blinov group is going further to settlement 41, and we stay to spend the night.
We had a tearful goodbye with Blinov group.
The mood sank.
At parting, we sang with Zina and Zhenya: "If you eyes hadn't ..."
In general I am very very sad.
We are extremely lucky!
The Symphonie in Gold was showing.
We left all our things and packs at the hotel and went to the club.
The image was a bit fuzzy, but it didn’t overshadow the pleasure at all.
Yurka Krivo, sitting next to me, was smacking his lips and oohing with delight.
This is real happiness, so difficult to describe with words.
The music is just fabulous!
The mood after the movie greatly improved.
Igor Dyatlov was unrecognizable.
He tried to dance, and even started singing: "O Jackie Joe"
We are on duty with Yuri today.
We decided to cook noodles on the stove.
But it was very difficult to heat the stove with such raw firewood, so it took a lot of time.
Finally we began to eat.
During the meal, a discussion arose about the rights of boys and girls to freedom, etc.
In my opinion, such discussions lead nowhere.
But we are doing it anyway, to vent the soul.
We went to bed late.
Had to lay down in beds by two, only Yurka Krivo and Sasha slept on the floor between the beds.

26 January - 59 years to the day
On January 26 1959 Dyatlov group travels on the back of the truck in poor condition from Vizhay (13:10) to 41st wood site (16:30).
This is possibly the ride that makes Yudin sick.
Vizhay, wake up 9:00, the dining room, Zina Kolmogorova sends the letter home, Igor Dyatlov sends home a postcard.
At 13:10 the group leaves Vizhay in truck Gaz-63 with no brakes and shock absorbers.
They ride in the open back of the truck, covered by a tent.
The hikers were exposed on this trip and Yudin fell ill.
At 16:30 they arrive in the village 41st forest area.
In the evening they see movies "On his own", "Est takoy paren" and "Symphonie in Gold" (again).

Dyatlov Group diary



January 26
We slept in so-called hotel.
Two people per bed. Sasha K. (Alexander Kolevatov) and Krivo (Yuri Krivonischenko) slept on the floor between beds.
Woke up at 9 am.
Everyone sleep well despite the fact we did not completely close the small window and room got a bit cold.
Outside temperature is -17 C.
We did not boil water in the morning, wood was damp.
In the evening it took us 6 hours to boil the water.
Had breakfast in the dining room, goulash and tea.
When they handed us the lukewarm tea, Gosya (Igor) Dyatlov said with a smile: "If the tea is cold, then go out and drink it on the street, it will be hot."
Original thought.
We negotiated to go to Settlement 41 by a truck.
We started at 13.10, and arrived at 16.30.
We froze pretty good at the back of GAZ-63.
While traveling we sang songs, discussed various topics like love, friendship, cancer illness and cures.
In Settlement 41 we were greeted warmly, they gave us a separate room in the hostel.
We talked a lot with the local workers.
I remembered particularly the red- bearded man.
The Beard, that's what his friends call him.
Ognev is an old friend, he is described in Lyuda Dubinina's private diary.
Lunch was served, we ate and now we are resting.
Some of the group is watching a movie in the adjacent room.
The rest of the group is rummaging through their backpacks.
Rustik (Rustem Slobodin) is playing his mandolin, while talking with Kolya (Nick Thibault).
I am going to do some adjustment to the equipment.
1.26.59 I can't, although I tried.
Nick Thibeaux
They were handed lukewarm tea, and after somebody complained Igor Dyatlov said with a smile: "If the tea is cold, then go out and drink it on the street, it will be hot."
To: A. A. Dyatlov Sender's address: Vizhay Dyatlov
Hello everyone.
Today, 26, we leave on the route, we arrived well.
On February 12-15 I will visit Sverdlovsk.
I probably will not go home, so let Rufa bring linen to our room for a trip to Penza.
From there I will return on March 5-7.
Greetings Igor

Zina Kolmogorova diary


26.1.59 We slept in beds.
We got up late, very late.
Rustik and I are on duty.
We went into the dining room.
And then we waited for the car and drove off.
Today the road is not so beautiful, there is less snow.
We are driving off road now.
Drove for a long time.
I, as always, was approached by some countryman.
We arrived at the 41st settlement.
Workers are simply working here, not prisoners, but recruits.
There are many smart ones.
We were accomodated in the small room of the driver.
Today is the last day of civilization.
Rustic plays the mandolin very well, I really enjoy listening to him.
Today I wore Yuri's mittens, but how I did not want to!
I was told that is not good not to accept them, so I took them.
We talk.
Not much.
Alexander Kolevatov, photo must be taken around 12-13:00 beofre Dyatlov group climbed on the back of the Gaz-63

Ludmila Dubinina diary


26 january In the morning Sashka jumped up from the cold and said that he had a cold night.
Zina and I slept perfectly.
Went to the dining room then began to gather.
We go by car.Tried to sing, talked about abstract topics and in general nobody was warm.
The surroundings were uninteresting at the beginning, a scorched forest.
In general, we had to go to 2nd North, but it was getting dark and we decided to stop at the 41st.
At 4.30 we were met very hospitably.
They stayed in the barrack, where the guys live.
In general, here are all civilians, there are no women at all, except two.
The guys are all young, as Igor noticed, there are even cute and generally interesting.
Especially memorable among all is Ognev with a red beard and the nickname of his "Beard".
In general, very rarely there are such people in such a hole. A true romantic, a geologist and generally developed.
Many of the guys play the guitar.
We watched three movies right away: "On his own", "Est takoy paren" and "Sympnonie in gold" again.
And again this music Co First in (illegible word) were divided into two groups one watched the movies, the other wrote diaries, and Rustik and Kolya reasoned a little about everything, about work, etc.
I like these guys.
A big difference between them, graduated from the institute Rustik, Ko, Yura and us.
All the same, their judgments are more mature and smarter than ours.
My God, I do not even talk about mine After the cinema, everyone was very tired and wanted to sleep.
We lay down with Zina on a spring bed.
It's a dream come true.
And the guys are all on the floor.
Mood is bad and probably will be for two more days.
Evil as hell.
Dyatlov group is in the back of of Gaz-63. Weather is cold and windy. They will try to protect themselves with a tent, but Yudin will still get sick.
Krivonishenko told the guys that he is about to make the last photo before he climbs into the truck so each of the guys reacted their own way. Dyatlov and Thibeaux-Brignolles leaned forward and and showed Yuri the fig sign. Apparently Zina Kolmogorova moved off the backpack on which she sat, her location was significantly lower than the previous shot. Yuri Yudin painted a grimace on his face and looks at Zina Kolmogorov. It may seem that he is making a grimace to Zina intending to scare her, but in fact, with his left hand he grabbed Zina Kolmogorova's back and tries to keep her from falling on her back. Igor, Nikolai, Zina and Lyuda are looking at Yuri, Zolotaryov waves his right hand, Alexander is not visible behind Zolotaryov's back. Doroshenko and Slobodin, without reacting to Yuri's signal, remained in their seats without visible reaction.

Yuri Yudin diary


We arrived by truck with no brakes, broken shock absorbers , etc., (only in the taiga you can ride on any car.) in the village 41 quarter.
Ognev, Nick? since 1931. - long beard.
He knows the whole of the Northern Urals.
I was a participant of many geological expeditions.
Quite knowledgeable on many issues.
He graduated from the Ufimskiy Technical College.
In the truck (that) city we came, we brought 3 movies: "On his own" by Gorki, "Est takoy paren" and "Sympnonie in gold" "In people" by Gorky ,? "Is there such a guy"? and the "Golden Symphony".
"In people" - under the usual circumstances, in the city, I would have never gone to see this movie.
It seems nothing of interest in it for me, waste of time.
Here - you start watching ... and from the very first frames you feel that the movie is new for you, you see it with different eyes than before and many new thoughts are rushing one after another under the impression of what's on the screen.
Grandma plays excellently. Above all, full penetration into the role.
Wealth, depth, importance of thoughts, content, and all this follows by itself, without any imposition ... himself as in a life without words and simple ??? a person and there is another recently released picture.
Paren (est takoy paren - there is such a guy) - the characters here, the artists portraying, are represented only by what they say at the moment and is not clear where and how did they originated, what they say and what they do.
It seems like they (the characters) are created to say only these particular words, and there is nothing else for them to say, and to do.
Roles like that are not clear, maybe I find the screenplay weak and superficial, bad stage director, bad artists and in short - it seems there are not living people on the screen full of thoughts, capable of creating stories themselves, but some automatic machines tuned to a spec. program, and that's why there is no performance in the whole movie.
They could have said in advance what the movie is about, and how will it end.
The whole movie in 5 mins. "Symphonie in gold" - austr.
About ballet on ice.
The ballet itself is a good show.
Good skating rinks, skill, technical performance, but feelings, thoughts in dances - none.
Maybe since music to me is only an income.
It seems to me that way?
The light music in places is excellent, it can't be better, but in general I couldn't feel the Person, his soul.
Maybe that's why everybody that saw the movie was saying: "It feels so good, nothing is missing, they say "like life itself"
We are warmly welcomed here.
they ride all kind of They gave us the only horse available here to take our backpacks tomorrow to 2nd Northern for free wood site about 200 150 km? from such a northern town as Ivdel.
There is no radio, no newspapers.
(They still can't check the lottery and I promised to send back the newspaper immediately from Sverdlovsk).
They live in a dormitory.
No order whatsoever, but people are everywhere.
Read everything that they can get their hands on and do they sing ...
Quietly, from the heart.
The songs are old, long forgotten or never heard.
Here they are ...
It's so good!
Why don't we sing such good, already forgotten songs.
And in general, we don't sing about the soul in places where there are some outsiders, it's not singing, not soulful, loud.
We must fight for the culture of choral singing.
Voices and change the repertoire.
So that there were no empty screaming song-trinkets.
Loggers are working poorly, work and life conditions are bad.
Are they paying poorly?
Everything is possible, but there is no good intelligent leadership.
Master - once he studied and did not finish the Moscow Forestry Institute.
The workers are very different.
Recruits after the army, after serving time (to earn some money and stayed, or for free). Many don't last, - they quit They work The majority has primary school or no education at all.
But there are widely erudite and even If you meet them in the city, you would never have thought that this person all his time in the taiga.
Uncle Slava.
Funny, somehow people do not think how this or that name will sound after uncle or grandpa *...
What a funny grandpa!
Until 1953, they threw in jail everybody that they could catch, innocent, then they figured it out and cleaned up, everybody was given rushed amnesty
*I think Yudin is referring to the fact Slava in Russian means Glory.

27 January - 59 years to the day


The river Lozva, the weather is gloomy, but there is no snow and no wind.
The group still consists of 10 tourist.
Almost everybody is in the photo, but Kolevatov who we can see in the previous photo is to the left of the frame, and the photographer Semyon Zolotaryov.
From the left is Doroshenko, Zina and Lyuda, in the center is the horse with pulling the sleigh topped with backpacks.
The horse is led by uncle Slava, he stands and looks at someone behind the sleigh.
Behind the sleigh follow Yura Yudin, Igor Dyatlov, Nikolai Thibeaux-Brignolles and Rustem Slobodin.
In the distance behind is Krivonischenko, who is making sketches.
On January 27 1959 Dyatlov group was leaving 41st district and Ognev "The Beard", the hospitality, the warm bread, wrote Mansi words in their notebooks, and at 4 pm uncle Slava and his horse sled took the backpacks while the hikers were following on skis along Lozva river, pass Ushma river and to the 2nd Northern.
The head of the site Ryazhnev promised to help the tourists to reach the abandoned geological site 2nd Northern by finding means of transportation.
Hikers mounted backpacks on the sled with a horse, got on skis and reached 2nd Northern which consisted from 24 houses only one of which was suitable to spend the night.
The sled belonged to uncle Slava, convicted in Lithuania in 1949 for 10 years and released to the settlement in 1956.
In 41st district Yudin's condition worsened.
He had inflamed back nerve, sciatica.
To continue an expedition from third category of complexity was impossible without becaming a burden, so Yudin decided to return.
They discussed the matter and decided that Yudin will go to 2nd Northern and there will make the final decision.
If his pain subsides, he can continue with the group, if his condition worsens, he will take the drilling samples from 2nd Northern and return to Sverdlovsk.

Zina Kolmogorova diary


27. Today is the first day of our journey.
The backpack is not much but somewhat heavy.
Yes, Yura Yudin is leaving us today.
His sciatic nerves inflamed again and he is leaving.
Such a pity.
We distributed his load in our backpacks.
It turns out that on the last day we see some kind of civilization,stove, people, etc.
Today we arranged out backpacks to go on horseback and we are waiting them to be ready, and we will go skiing.
Everyone is singing, the workers living in barracks, did not go to work, they sing.
We sit and write songs.
Many workers are very talented, intelligent people. Especially "the beard", his beard is ginger, ginger, and his eyes are also ginger, and brown.
The guys sing well.
And Rustic plays the mandolin very well.
Today was the last day me and Lyuda slept in beds.
Tonight we are going to be in a tent, apparently.
Now we are in the 41st quarter, today our goal is to reach the 2nd Nortern.
They say, there is a hut there, but no one lives in it.
Hurry to the road, to the skis ...
How about we go?
I'm lately somehow very deeply affected by music, guitar, mandolin and other.
Yesterday saw 3 movies here "In people", "There is such a guy" and again "Symphonie in Gold".
I want to see "Symphonie in Gold" even more times.

The whole day went, in front of the horse, behind the horse on the river Lozva.
They often flew to ice, cleaned skis.
They came already in the dark for a long time looking for a hut with windows and doors.
2nd North is an abandoned village, nobody lives here at all, and what beautiful places!
It's just Chusovaya.
The stones on the banks are some cliffs, limestone, white.
Today we go a few km along the

Luda Dubinina diary


27 january Temperature is 5°.
Warm, skis are useless.
We are getting ready since the morning.
Today is the first day of the route.
Now we sit and wait for the horse to carry the backpacks, and we go on skis.
Fortune smiles at us. Yuri Yudin got sick, something with a nerve of his leg, in general he radiculitis and he is going home.
So, there are nine of us in the future.
At the moment we are sitting and singing songs.
Guys play the guitar, Rustic plays along with the mandolin.
Catches your heart.
This is the last place of civilization, and it is rare that we met people like that.
Overall I love the guitar and I adore all musical people.
And the guys in general are all good, they dance, they are musical.
We talked with Ognev.
He knows a lot and is interesting with him, now he talks about where we are going and more like this.
This, in my opinion, is the most interesting object here on the site.
He has such a long red beard, although he is only 27 years, he looks older.
And then there is Valya, who plays the guitar well (many play) and about whom I jokingly said that I like him.
Now most of the guys sit here and sing songs to the guitar, on the occasion that they do not work today.
It seems this is the last time I hear so many good new songs.
But we hope that Rustik will live up to the challenge.
We learn some Mansi words from the guys.

Dyatlov Group diary


The weather’s really good.
The wind is at our backs, and the lads made a deal with the locals for a horse to drive us to Second North settlement.
But it will be about 24 km from the 41st Settlement.
We helped Uncle Slava unload hay from a carriage and waited for the horse (it went to get more hay and wood).
We waited until 4:00 pm.
The boys started copying some songs.
One man sang beautifully.
We heard a number of illegal prison songs (Article 58 counter-revolutionary crimes).
Before that we bought four loaves of bread. Soft warm bread.
We ate 2 loaves. Horse is slow.
What a pleasure to go without backpacks.
We covered 8 km in 2 hours.
(River Ushma).
It's getting dark.
The horse is causing the delay.
Yuri Yudin is still with us.
He suddenly fell ill and he can't continue with the trek.
He wants to gather few minerals for the University and return.
Second North is an abandoned geological site consisting of 20-25 houses.
Only one is suitable for living.
In complete darkness we found a village and the house.
We started a fire with wood boards.
Smoke came form the stove.
Several people hurt their hands on old nails.
Everything is well.
Then the horse came.
We were talking and joking till 3 in the morning.

Yuri Yudin diary


27 We spent the night in the hut of the 2nd Northern settlement.
There so much - many houses, warehouses, premises, forgot old vehicles, machine tools.
Everything was abandoned since 1952.
Here worked geological expedition what they could took out, the rest was exhausted and thrown.
The houses are all destroyed, there is only one with a stove and glass on the windows.
The place is picturesque.
Lozva river is wide.
Lots of lime rocks.
Uncle Slava says that in the summer you can cross the river, many warm, hot springs.
Sagebrush and water is not entirely frozen and there are places under the snow where water is not forzen after which we need to brake the ice from the skis.
Village Vizhay - camp (???) you can buy products.
Apothecary - artist Herzen ?.
German, wife is German.
Idyll in the family.
On the walls, relief paintings with filigree decoration, very masterfully, unusually finely executed.
Thousands of Chests - a view of Lozva in the summer and the same in the winter, more jewelry boxes, paintings - everywhere.
Big ones. In the pharmacy - wax from red rose, fluorescent compound, Kremlin - from test tubes with fluorine. compositions, glowing.
Built in wrist watch "Pobeda".
It works fine.
An unusually polite gentle, kind person.
Wife, German, very affable, hospitable They really care about the medicine.
For children, the best medicines are taken care of.
They beg me to send them penicillin in tablets from Ivdel, he has very little (for children), it is difficult to get good medication.
Boring, all tired of the lecture and something After all, it's so good from time to time to introduce a new thought, a new direction in the conversation ... especial
This photo was taken at the same place as the previous two frames. Semyen Zolotarev, in the background Zina Kolmogorova stands on skis and blocks the figure of Lyuda Dubinina, between them there is one of the hikers, only skis and ski poles are visible. Simyon Zolotaryov gave his camera to one of the hikers and began to clean the snow from his skis.
Lozva, you can see the skis traces that the group passed through.
Photo by Yuri Krivonischenko. Most likely this photo was taken on the Lozva river near the source of the Ushma river and the village of Ushma. Zina, Semyon and Lyuda clean their skis. Dyatlov group diary: "We covered 8 km in 2 hours (the river Ushma)." Doroshenko

28 January - 59 years to the day
Dyatlov group diary
January 28
We were awaken by the rumbling voices of Yurka Kri and Sasha Kolevatov.
Weather so far is smiling at us.
It's only -8C outside.
After breakfast, some of the guys lead by Yuri Yudin, our well- known geologist, went to look for local minerals.
They didn't find anything except pyrite and quartz veins in the rock.
Took them long time to wax their skis and adjust the mounting.
Yuri Yudin goes back home today.
It is a pity, of course, that he leaves us.
Especially for me and Zina, but nothing can be done about it.
Started at 11.45.
We go up the river Lozva.
We take turns to head the group for about 10 minutes.
Snow cover is significantly less than last year.
We have to stop and scrape the wet, melting snow from the bottom of the skis.
Yurka Kri is behind and makes sketches of the route.
The bank of the river near Second North (especially the right bank) are limestone cliffs that rise high at places.
Overall the terrain becomes flatter, entirely covered by forest.
We stop to rest at 5:30 pm on river Lozva.
Today we spend our first night in the tent.
The guys are busy with the stove, sewing curtains out of sheets.
With some thing completed and others not, we sit at dinner.
After dinner we sit for long time around the campfire and sing heartfelt songs.
Zina even tries to learn to play mandolin under guidance of our musician Rustik (Rustem Slobodin).
Then we resume our discussions, mostly about love.
Someone comes up with an idea that we need a special notebook for ideas that we might come up with.
Conspiring, we started going into the tent two people at a time.
The suspended stove radiates heat and divides the tent in two sections.
The further section is occupied by me and Zina.
Nobody wants to sleep by the stove.
We agree that Yurka Kri (Krivonischenko) will sleep there.
On the other side sleeps the person on duty (Sasha Kolevatov).
Yurka couldn't stand the heat and after laying down for 1-2 min, he got up and moved to the second section cursing and accusing us of treason.
After that they still argued about something for a long time, but at the end all was quiet.
Lyuda Dubinina - this entry is not signed, but can't be anybody else but Dubinina.

Zina Kolmogorova diary


Uncle Slava is leaving today on his horse, and Yura Yudin is leaving too.
He took a few samples.
I saw this type for the first after the drilling.
There is a lot of chalcopyrite and pyrite.
Last night the boys made stupid jokes.
In my opinion, if we don't pay attention to them, maybe they will be less rude. And so far, nothing.
It's time to go out, but they are still digging and digging.
I do not understand what's taking so long.
The first 30 minutes are over.
Of course, the backpack is somewhat heavy.
But it's possible to go.
The first day is always difficult.
left forward
Sasha Kolevatov tested his device and threw it away.
Second halt.
It was much easier to go yesterday without backpacks
snow, snow, snow, snow on the banks frozen river snow snow
Boundary stone.
Lunch was an hour at 4 pm After lunch we did just one more hike and stopped to rest.
I mended the tent.
We lay down to sleep. Igor was rude the whole evening,
I just couldn't recognize him.
I had to sleep on the wood near the stove.

Ludmila Dubinina diary


28 january
Woke up at 8 o'clock in the morning to someone's talk.
It turns out to be Yuri Krie and Sasha Kolya.
The weather is as warm as yesterday (t ° -8 °) Eat, h After breakfast, some of the guys Yura Yudin, Kolya and Yura Doroshenko went for the rocks in the core storage, where they decided to collect minerals for the collection.
Nothing but pyrite, and there were no quartz veins in the rock.
Gathered for a long time, prepared rations, greased the skis then
Morning at the 2nd Northern abandoned geological site.
There is mine is in the 2nd Northern settlement.
Yuri Yudin holds a sample core in his hands.
Nikolai Thibeaux-Brignolles decided to sit down.
However, the bench was too close to the wall and the backpack on his back pushed against the wall.
As a result, Kolya sat down on the edge of the bench, his skis drove off and he fell to the ground along with the bench.
The fall made everyone laugh, a smile appeared even on his face.
Nikolai Thibeaux-Brignolles lies, smiles and looks at the photographer.
Next to it stands Yudin, in his right hand holds a sample core.
Yuri pulled out a bench from Nicholas and put it back to the wall.
Parting with Yuri Yudin, they will never see each other again.
Igor Dyatlov on the left.
His backpack looks heavy.
Lyuda Dubinina hugs Yuri Yudin goodbye.
Despite the fact that her backpack is big, it does not seem to be heavy.
Lyuda had a bullet wound to her leg and the guys on the trek apparently tried to lighten her backpack as much as possible.
On the right, Kolya is behind Lyuda, he smiles and looks at Lyuda's farewell scene with Yudin.
Farewell Yuri Yudin with Zina Kolmogorova.
Yudin looks at Zina and makes a movement to hug her waist.
Zina, smiling, looks at Yudin and makes a counter motion to hug at his neck.
Zolotaryov is looking at Zina, he is skiing, ski poles are in his hands.
Backpack is on his back, although not visible but the strap is (and an ice ax or a spare ski pole).
When Zina and Yuri huged Zina's heavy backpack pulled her back, the skies went slid forward and Zina lost balance and fell on her back.
Yuri Yudin is helping Zina to get back on her feet with her heavy backpack.
Yuri Yudin stays behind, he is going back to 41st district with uncle Slava and the horse sled.
Last photo of 2nd Northern.
Dyatlov group will never be seen alive.
A photo showing the bank collapsed from being washed by the waters of river Lozva.
The first day of the ski trip, the tourists were tired and stretched out along the route, it was decided to make the first stop.
In the distance, five figures of hikers walking along the Lozva are visible.

Shot of the surrounding landscape, low shores, dense forest, the sky is cloudy.
Dyatlov group is getting up after lunch.
Semyon Zolotaryov was leading the group before lunch, and now is behind.
A photo of poor quality.
Judging by the pictures that Semyon was taking, one can make the assumption that Zolotaryov did not have much experience in photography, and he himself acquired a camera recently.

He is behind Zina Kolmogorova and decided to take a picture of the group against the background of Хой-Эква 733m (inactive volcano).

29 January - 59 years to the day
On January 29, 1959, the men of the group took turns to cut a trail for 10 mins, and the group was taking a break after all 7 rotated.
They stopped every 70 mins (2-3 km).
They turn on Auspiya river tributary.
The group stopped for lunch at the fourth halt.
They followed a Mansi ski trail and soon started seeing Mansi signs and storage platform (labaz).
Dyatlov group spent the night at the river Hoysipulsos (Хойсиспалсос) tributary.
It's Yuri Doroshenko's birthday.
He turned 21.

Zina Kolmogorova diary



Today is Yurka's birthday.
We go first to Lozva then we turn to Auspiya.
Surroundings are beautiful.
Along the Auspiya Mansi have passed.
A trail is visible, grooves, a path is visible.
We often see Mansi signs on the trail.
I wonder what they write about?
Now the Mansi trail goes South. (note: the turn is the sketch of the notch, the initials with the date Oct. 5, 1958, the drawing of the ax?)
Now we sit the three of us: Rustik, Yurka and I Waiting for the rest.
For the night stopped near the ski tracks.
We are burning firewood with Yurka.
We talked about the past.
Such a playboy.

Dyatlov group diary



Second day of our hike.
We made our way from the Lozva River to the Auspiya River.
We walked along a Mansi trail.
The weather is –13 C.
The wind is weak.
We often find ice on the Lozva River.
That's all.
Nick Thibeaux
Morning on Lozva river, Krivonischenko took a picture of the winding ski trail.
Lozva river, in the distance mountain Хой-Эква 733m.
Break on Lozva.
Yuri Doroshenko sits on his backpack.
From the backpack sticking out is the handle of an ice ax or an ax, next to it there is still someone's backpack, probably Zina Kolmogorova's.
A pencil sticks out of his breast pocket.
It's cold, Yuri has a hat and a windbreaker and warms his hands in his pockets.
He listens to the conversation of the guys and smiles.
Zina Kolmogorova barely in the frame, Nikolai, Zolotaryov, Lyuda Dubinina hidden behind him, last is Rustem Slobodin looking at the camera.

The group turned off from Lozva river and went to Auspiya through the forest following the ski trail of a Mansi hunter.
Auspiya river.
Following the Mansi hunter trail Dyatlov geoup came across a Mansi labaz (storage platform raised above the ground)
Dyatlov group stopped for lunch.
They are discussing the Mansi labaz and what they should do for a cache before ascending to Mt. Otorten.
This looks like a trap for animals that the hikers came upon and took a picture.
Dyatlov group took pictures of Mansi markings that tell how many local hunters passed through this area and the family clan to which they belong.
Mansi are people of the north.
Very interesting and unique people that inhabit the North Polar Urals, closed to the Tyumen region.
They have a written language and leave characteristic signs on forest trees.

30 January - 59 years to the day

Dyatlov group diary



30 January 1959
Diary is written in the cold on the go.
Today is a third cold night on the bank of Auspiya river.
We are getting used to it.
The stove does a great job.
Some of us (Thibeaux and Krivonischenko) think we need to build steam heat in the ten.
The curtains in the tent are quite justified.
We get up at 8:30am.
After breakfast we walk along the Auspiya river, but the ice again doesn't allow us to move forward.
We went on the bank on a sledge-deer trail.
In the middle of the road the saw Mansi shed.
Yes, Mansi, Mansi, Mansi.
This word comes up more and more often in our conversations.
Mansi are people of the North.
Small Hanti-Mansijskiy nation located in Salehard with 8 thousand population.
Very interesting and unique people that inhabit the North Polar Urals, close to the Tyumen region.
They have a written language, and leave characteristic signs on forest trees.
Weather: temperature in the morning - 17 С day - 13 С night - 26 С.
The wind is strong, south-west, snow begins to fall, heavy clouds, drop in temperature.
The temperature is normal for Northern Urals.
This is a story about the forest.
Mansi signs tell about animals they saw, resting stops and other things.
It is particularly interesting to solve its meaning for the tourists as well as historians.
Deer trail turns into а trodden path, and then ends.
To go without a trail is very hard, snow is 120 cm (4 feet) deep.
The forest gradually thins and trees get smaller.
Lots of dwarf birches and pines.
It is impossible to walk on the river.
It is not completely frozen, there is ice and water under the snow.
We have to go back on the bank of the river.
The day is over and we have to find a place for bivouac.
That's the stop for the night.
Strong west wind.
It blows the snows off the cedar and pine trees, creating the impression of a snow fall.
As usual we quickly start a fire and pitch the tent on some fir branches.
We are warmed by the fire and go to sleep.

Unknown diary


January 30.
In the morning it was 17 ° now it is getting colder.
"Volunteers" (S. Kolevatov and K. Tibo are repeating their duties as a punishment for slowing the group yesterday) took a long time to start a fire.
In the evening it was decided that we will leave the tent exactly 8 minutes after waking up.
Therefore, all have been awake and waiting for the command.
But it is useless. Around 9:30 in the morning we began the passive preparation.
Nick T. is joking about something in the morning.
Everyone is reluctant to get up.
And the weather!
In contrast to the rest of the warm days - today is a sunny cold day.
The sun appears playful.
Today as yesterday were are following the path of Mansi.
Sometimes Mansi writings appear on trees.
In general, all sorts of obscure mysterious characters.
There is slogan for ​​our campaign, "In a country of mysterious signs."
If we knew these letters, it would be possible, without any doubt, to go down the path, confident that it would lead us to the right place.
Here the trail takes us to the shores of the river.
We lose track.
In the future, the trail follows the left bank of Auspii river, but the team of deer crossed the river and we are going through the woods.
At the first opportunity we will turn back to the river.
As it is easier to follow it.
At approximately 2 pm we stop for a lunch.
Dried meat, guest crackers, sugar, garlic, coffee, stocked in the morning - that's our lunch.
Good mood.
A couple more hours - and we will stop at 5 pm for the night.
We have been looking for a place, then we returned about 200 meters back.
Charming place.
Deadwood, high pines, in short, everything you need for a good night.
Luda quickly got tired and sat down by the fire.
Nick Thibault changed his clothes.
He began to write a diary.
The law is that until all the work is done, do not approach the fire.
And so they had a long argument, of who will sew the tent.
Finally K. Tibo gave up and took a needle.
Lyuda remained seated.
And we sewed the hole (and there were so many that there was enough work for all except two attendants and Lyuda.
Guys are terribly outraged.
Today is the birthday of Sasha Kolevatova*.
We give him a clementine, which he immediately divided into 8 pieces (Lyuda went into a tent and did not come out until the end of the dinner).
So another day of our trek went smoothly.
* Alexander Kolevatov was born on November 16th, not January 30th.

Zinaida Kolmogorova diary


We go on Auspiya cold (ayserm).
Mansi trail ended.
Pine forest.
There was sun in the morning, now is cold (ayserm).
All day long we walked along Auspiya.
Will spend the night on a Mansi trail.
Kolya didn't get to be a watchman so me and Rustik will stay on duty today.
Burned mittens and Yurkin's second sweatshirt.
He cursed a lot.
Today, probably, we will build a storage.
The morning, apparently the group's first break, stopped next to more signs on the tree left by the Mansi hunters.
Igor Dyatlov in the photo.
His jacket is dirty, camera hangs on his chest.
The cut-off tiny tree is clearly visible right below.
The trunk could be chopped by the Mansi hunter.
Simyon Zolotaryov, his mustache is frosted, on the left side of his chest hangs a flashlight.
From the front and left, two backpacks are visible on the photo.
On the front backpack are fastened boots.
In the background, from the left, behind the squinting spruce stands a man in a light storm jacket with a black hat on his head.
Could be Yuri Doroshenko who was wearing a fur hat, he probably waits for the rest of the group.
Zina Kolmogorova draws in her notebook the Mansi symbols on the tree.
Behind her is Semyon Zolotarev.
Rustem Slobodin and Nikolai Thibeaux-Brignolles caught up with the group.
Rustem stuck his ski poles in the snow and looked at the signs on the tree.
Taking ski poles underarms, behind him is Nikolai.
At the feet of Nikolai, there is a spare pair of skis on the snow, obviously a spare pair of skis was passed on to the change on the route to the one who was behind the column.
In the foreground, Alexander Kolevatov is sitting on the backpack and looking at Rustem.
Next to him is Simon Zolotarev.
On the left leg of Kolevatov, there is an object similar to the Igor Dyatlov's bag, in which there is a general diary of the group and the map, Alexander pressed it to his leg with his left elbow.
Obviously, Igor studied the further route, while they waited for the whole group to gather, and Kolevatov made the first entry for January 30 in the general diary.
Or perhaps the first entry was made by Lyuda Dubinina who (unlike Alexander Kolevatov) never signed her entries to the general diary, and then gave the diary to Kolevatov.
Sunny morning, the group walks through the forest along the Auspiya River.
Prior to the first stop, Krivonischenko was apparently the first to go.
After the break, the group reassemble and Krivonischenko is the last.
He took a photo of the trail left by the skiers.
The group emerged from the forest on the river Auspiya, walking along the shore adhering to the right side.
First goes Igor Dyatlov, second Nikolai Thibeaux-Brignolles, followed by Lyuda Dubinina.
Igor stopped and looked back at the photographer.
On the back of Lyuda there is a light backpack, she walks freely with an imposing gait.
The weather is clear, the sun is shining.
Each of the boys is cutting a trail for 10 minutes, another 20 minutes and the group will stop.
The group is walking along Auspiya river.
Despite the very poor quality of the picture, the ski track of the group is clearly visible.
In the distance you can distinguish five dark figures.
Apparently there was a change and now the first goes Thibeaux-Brignolles, followed by Lyuda Dubinina, the third - it is unknown, the fourth is Zina Kolmogorova.
Sunny weather.
Next to Zolotaryov are two trees, the second one has Mansi markings.
Ahead of him are ski track - part of the group has already disappeared from view in the forest.
In the foreground Zina Kolmogorova is fixing her shoe overalls.
At the right of her are two backpacks, one of them is hers, and the second most likely belongs to Igor Dyatlov.
Krivonischenko looks at Mansi signs.
At the bottom of the second tree are harvested logs.
The year 1958 must have been carved by somebody else, it is not characteristic for Mansi to write the year.
There are logs next to the tree ready to be used in a camp fire.
Dyatlov group on a break.
The weather has changed, overcast.
(.... To go without a trail is very hard, snow is 120 cm (4 feet) deep.
The forest gradually thins and trees get smaller.
You can feel the altitude.
Lots of dwarf birches and pines. ...)
Semyon Zolotaryov on a group’s break
Zina Kolmogorova, Lyuda Dubinina, Rustem Slobodin and Alexander Kolevatov
Auspiya river, winter forest.
Evening, 5 pm, the group is looking for a place to spend the night.
(... At the first opportunity we will turn back to the river... we will stop at 5 pm for the night.
We have been looking for a place, then we returned about 200 meters back. ...)

31 January - 59 years to the day


The sequence of frames in film №1 is questionable.
The film is cut and it is hard to tell which frame follows which.
According to the sequence of frames it turns out that Doroshenko's sweatshirt was burned in the night January 31 to February 1.
However, it is known from the diary of Zina Kolmogorova that the sweatshirt was burned in the night January 30 to January 31.
There is a clear contradiction.
What to believe, the sequence of the film cut into several parts or entries in the diary?
With the further restoration of the chronology of events, we will stick to the entries in the diaries.

Dyatlov group diary


31 January 1959
Today the weather is a bit worse wind (west), snow (probably from the pines) because the sky is perfectly clear.
Came out relatively early (around 10 am).
Took the same Mansi sled trail.
Till now we walk along a Mansi trail, which was crossed by a deer hunter not long ago.
Yesterday we apparently came across his resting stop.
Deer didn't go much further.
The hunter didn't follow the beaten trail and we are now in his steps.
Today was surprisingly good accommodations for the tent, air is warm and dry, despite the low temperature of -18C to -24C.
Walking is especially hard today.
Visibility is very low.
We can't see the trail and sometimes we have to advance gropingly.
All we can do is 1.52 km (1 mile) per hour.
We are forced to find new methods of clearing the path for the skis.
The first member leaves his backpack on the ground and walks forward, then returns and rests for 10-15 minutes with the group.
Thus we have a non-stop paving of the trail.
It is especially hard for the second to move down the new trail with full gear on the back.
We gradually leave the Auspiya valley, the rise is continuous, but quite smooth.
Fir trees are replaced by wispy birch-wood.
We came out of the tree line.
Wind is western, warm, penetrating.
The speed of the wind is similar to the air draft created by a taking off airplane.
Firn, open spaces.
I can't even start thinking of setting up a storage.
It's close to 4. 
We have to start looking for a place to pitch the tent.
We are going south in Auspiya river valley.
This apparently is the place covered with the deepest snow.
Wind is not strong, snow cover is 1,22 m.
Tired and exhausted we started the preparations for the night.
Not enough firewood.
Frail damp firs.
We started fire with logs, too tired to dig a fire pit.
We had supper right in the tent. It's warm.
It is hard to imagine such a comfort somewhere on the ridge, with a piercing wind, hundreds kilometers away from human settlements. 
The stream is not frozen.
Walking along the creek is not possible, large snowdrifts and deep snow.
This photo in possible to have been taken on January 30.
Alexander Kolevatov and Nikolai Thibeaux-Brignolles, behind them stands a pair of skis.
Behind Nikolai's right, leaning against the birch and all in the snow, lies a backpack.
To this birch is tied an extension that holds the center of the tent.
Behind the backpack and birch stands a tent.
The edge of the slope of the tent is covered with snow, wet spots are visible on the slope.
Alexander is pointing at something down and laughs, Nikolai looks down and laughs too.
The guys most likely laugh at the burnt Doroshenko's sweatshirt.
Dyatlov (left, bended), Zolotaryov, Dubinina and Kolevatov (right) brushing ashes from Dyatlov's homemade stove.
We can see Kolevatov's Finnish knife.
Note how the tent is suspended on a rope tied to nearby trees.
From this photo and other we can speculate that Lyuda liked to hang around the the seniour member of the group - Zolotaryov and Thibeaux-Brignolles.
That can explain her choice to join them at the last hours of her life.
Just for laughs Rustem Slobodin put on the burnt sweatshirt that belonged to Yuri Doroshenko and posed for the photo.
Morning, Rustem Slobodin posing for a photo in the burnt sweatshirt that belonged to Doroshenko.
Behind him in the snow lies a pair of skis, in front of him is a backpack, Rustem's feet are covered with shoe covers.
The group is preparing to get on the trail.
... It's impossible to walk along the river - it did not freeze, and under the snow, water and ice ...
In the photo Nikolai Thibeaux-Brignolles.
To the left in the snow lies the ski.
Large drifts, deep snow, Nikolai fell into a creek under the snow.
Nikolai lies in the snow.
The ski that lay next to it is no longer visible covered with snow, next to it there are two ski poles.
One ski stick plunged into the snow to the very handle, this indicates that the depth of the snow is more than a meter.
Some of the guys tried to pull Nikolai by the legs and pulled off his left foot boots.
Nikolai cleared himself of some snow and puts a black glove on his left hand.
Apparently it was his turn to pack the snow ahead of the group.
The group walked along the river covered with snow and at some point Nikolai collapsed.
Nikolai got out of the snowdrift, got to his feet, put on his right foot boots and looked at the guys.
In the foreground, behind the branches, lies his backpack, next to him is a black right mitt, skis and ski poles.
In front to the left is a hole in the snow, probably under it is a stream.
You can see tracks leading to the silhouette.
This is not somebody hiding in the forest going after the group, like Yeti.
This theory is Discovery channel’s way to justify a budget spent on a movie - so they had to offer an ending that will speak to the american audience.
In the states you can’t make a movie and not have an ending.
Please stop asking me about the “Yeti” photo.
This is Nikolai Thibeaux-Brignolles.
Nikolai smiles at the photographer, although it's clear he is very cold.
The group stopped for lunch.
In the foreground is Zina Kolmogorova.
She stuck her ski poles in the snow, one of the guys helped her take off her backpack and put it next to her.
Zina took off the mittens and threw them on the snow, in her right hand she holds several pieces of sugar, waiting for Kolya Thibaut to give her the rest of the dinner.
On the left Kolya Thibaut's foot and hand, he sits on a backpack and distributes food to the hikers.
Yuri Krivonischenko, Lyuda Dubinina, Yuri Doroshenko and Alexander Kolevatov.
After lunch, the group heads to the pass.
Bad weather, strong wind, blizzard, visibility is limited. In the photo, most likely it's Zina Kolmogorova.
In the photo is Rustem Slobodin, on his shoulders there is a backpack with a pair of felt boots, a handle of an ax sticks out from the backpack.
Next to him is a backpack, on the far background from the right one more backpack is seen, most likely it's a bag with the tent.
The group stopped at the foot of the pass on the border of the forest.
There is strong wind, blizzard and low visibility.
Photo by Yuri Krivonischenko
In the foreground, without a backpack, stands Igor Dyatlov and looks somewhere to the left of the photographer.
His left knee in the snow, obviously Igor was kneeling when he took off his backpack.
From the left, behind Igor, is Nikolai Thibeaux-Brignolles, he took off his ski boot and looked at the photographer.
Resisting the force of the wind, Igor and Nikolai inclined their bodies forward.
In the background is Lyuda Dubinina, she turns away from the wind and looks around, looks at the one who follows her.
She has a small backpack on her back.
The presence of a small backpack on the back of Lyuda Dubinina.
She had a leg wound, so the guys tried to make the weight of her backpack as easy as possible.
Behind her another figure is visible, most likely it's Alexander Kolevatov.
The group came to the foot of the pass and stopped at the edge of the forest.
Around the small crooked birches and spruce.
The weather is very different from what it was in the valley of the Auspiya river.
On the pass there is a strong wind, blizzard, low visibility is bad at 100 - 200 m.
We gradually leave Auspiya valley, the rise is continuous, but quite smooth.
Fir trees are replaced by wispy birch-wood.
We came out of the tree line.
Wind is western, warm, penetrating.
The speed of the wind is like air draft created by a taking off airplane.
Firn, open spaces.
I can't even start thinking of setting up a storage.
It's close to 4 pm.

It seems like there were members of the group that were sent out to scout the pass, and they just came back.
Very interesting shot - it recorded one of the important moments in the fate of the group.
The tourists stopped at a halt, on the border of the forest, to put on warm clothes and prepare for further ascent in the mountain.
While the group was gathering firewood, Dyatlov and Kolevatov went further up to assess the conditions.
Igor Dyatlov on the left, talking to Semyon Zolotaryov.
Igor is on the skis, Alexander Kolevatov listens to what Igor is saying and looks at Semyon or at some of the guys behind him.
To the right is Semyon Zolotarev, he threw a jacket on his shoulders and listens attentively to what Igor is saying with a serious expression on his face.
Behind Semyon is Yura Doroshenko, he goes to his backpack. In the background on skis is Rustem Slobodin with a heavy backpack, with boots on top of it.
On the previous photo there was an ax sticking out of his backpack, now it's not there.
They are cutting wood for the night.
Rustem warms his hands in his pockets and looks at Lyuda and Nikolai.
Next to him on the ski is Zina Kolmogorova.
She is slightly bent forward and puts her left arm on her shoulder strap from the backpack.
Near Zina on the right, stands Nikolai Thibeaux-Brignolles on skis, on his shoulders hangs a heavy backpack.
With his right hand Nikolai is helping Zina to put her backpack on her shoulders.
In the foreground, with his back, next to the dwarf birch, stands Lyuda Dubinina.
She warms her hands in the pockets of her trousers and looks at the guys.
On the snow there are two backpacks, one is Yuri Doroshenko's, and the second must be Semyon Zolotaryov's.
To the backpacks are attached brush and firewood for the stove.
The group stands in a small hollow on the edge of the forest.
From the right of the group is a small hill, on which grow dwarf, ugly birches.
Strong headwind, blizzard, visibility no more than 100 m.
This photo captures a key moment.
What happened here?
It may seem that Igor, as the head of the group, made a gross mistake, led tourists to a radial ascent without having made storage and the group was in extremely unfavorable conditions.
Here everything depended on the further choice of the route.
... Today, probably, we will build a storage. ...
Apparently, there was no certainty, Igor himself did not know exactly where they would build the storage?
If the group was going to follow the route; the river Auspiya - the river Lozva - mountain Otorten, they should overcome a pass and go down to a valley of the river Lozva.
The ascent to the Mt Otorten, by plan, was supposed to happen from the valley of Lozva river, but then they would not need need the brush and firewood before going through the pass.
The group reached the pass early, and during lunch, Dyatlov decided to stack up with firewood and go up the pass for an overnight on the ridge.
There was still enough bright time of day to continue the trek for the day.
Igor intended to raise the group with full equipment to Mt Kholat Syakhl.
There he planned to spend a cold overnight, then to cross the northern peaks of the Kholat Syakhl and descend to the valley of the Lozva river, build a storage and continue to Mt Otorten.
After careful consideration Igor decided that the exercise to spend the night on the pass will make more sense if they leave the extra load here.
On this photo is captured the moment when Igor is explaining to Zolotaryov his change of plan:
  • go back to Auspiya river for a warm and sheltered campsite
  • make a storage, leave an extra load
  • next day continue to Mt Otorten without descending from the pass. They would have already built the storage and left the extra load on Auspiya river. The standard route to go up Mt Otorten was from Lozva river. Dyatlov had a different idea in mind - once on top of the pass to continue on the ridge light from extra weight, trek easily on firm ice on the ridge of Mt Kholat Syakhl without loss of altitude, and spend a warm night on the lake, the source of Lozva river
  • make an ascent to Mt Otorten and set off on the return journey.

1 February - 59 year to the day


On February 1 the group started out late, covered 2 km only and pitched a tent on the open ridge for a "cold" overnight i.e. without firewood.
Dyatlov group had to prepare a note for the ascent to Mt Otorten, but instead they write on Evening Otorten №1, the satirical propaganda leaflet.
The only written piece where snowman (or Yeti) is mentioned is in Evening Otorten №1, the satirical propaganda leaflet Dyatlov Group put together at the night of the incident.
The case file does not contain a photo of this flyer, only a transcript of its content.
You might think that Keith McCloskey, Libecki and others would want to consult the original document in order to independently authenticate such an apparently important clue, but they do not.
We have to guess what their plans were.
  • They were carrying the stove and even though they did not used it that night it means that they were planning on using it at least once before their return back to the labaz.
  • They pitched the tent on the ridge although they had the time to go down to Lozva river. The only reason to do that is to continue in the morning on high grounds towards Otorten, where it is easier to ski on firm snow.


The conclusion is that they planned to have more "warm" overnight on February 2 at lake Lunthusaptur (Лунтхусаптур) under Mt Otorten where the source of Lozva starts.
They must have planned to make the note for the ascent then.
On the morning of February 3 make an ascent to Mt Otorten, and replace the note that was there with their own.
Then they pack their tent and start their way back.
They spend another "cold" overnight on February 3 on Kholat Syakhl.
On February 4 the group was supposed to go back to their labaz on Auspiya river.
From the campsite on February 1 to Mt Otorten is about 18 km.
Taking into account the return journey, that makes 36 km.
The group planned to leave on February 1 and return on February 4 to the labaz, the group had to take products for 3 days.
The upcoming route was r. Auspiya - lake Lunthusaptur - Mt Otorten - r. Auspiya.
They started late on February 1 because they waited for the weather to clear out.
They wrote Evening Otorten №1, built a storage (labaz), gather firewood for the return back.
Then after lunch, Dyatlov took the risk and lead the group up the the mountain Kholat Syakhl.
Dyatlov Pass is not where the group was headed.
The pass is the place to go over Kholat Syakhl if you are going to come down.
Some people speculate that Dyatlov got lost and didn't find the pass.
This is not true.
The group didn't intend to go though the pass.
They wanted to gain altitude and stay on the ridge for a "cold" overnight i.e. without firewood.
They went 2 km and about 3 pm setup a camp site.

On February 2 the group was supposed to cover 14 - 14.5 km on a firm snow, reach lake Lunthusaptur and to have a "warm" overnight.
That's way they took the stove with them and was found in the tent, not used on the tragic night of February 1.
What happened on the night of February 1959 will haunt us till this day.
I can offer only a speculative reenactment of the events of this night.

This is a speculative reenactment of the events outside the tent up on the slopes of Kholat Syakhl on Dyatlov group last night alive.


This story is based the following facts:


  • sightings of light effects in the sky are common for this latitude ***
  • Zolotoryov and Thibeaux-Brignolles were wearing felt boots (valenki)
  • the camera found around Zolotoryov's neck
  • frame from Zolotoryov's damaged film
  • Thibeaux-Brignolles and Krivonischenko’s knives were found in their parkas inside the tent
  • Kolevatov's Finish knife was found inside the tent in March
  • The black plastic sheath of that same knife was found outside the tent in May when the snow started to melt
  • Kolevatov was wearing one felt boot on his right foot
  • Dyatlov's jacket was found outside the tent, knife in his pocket
  • Dyatlov's flashlight was found on top of the tent
  • Slobodin's injuries
  • Rustem's body was the only one with icy bed under from the hardening of the thawing snow


*** Here is a statement of someone familiar with the region:
"I have lived a number of years above the Arctic Circle.


Lights, fireballs, and other strange luminescent events are common.


People in the lower latitudes only know about 'the Northern Lights' but there is a whole range of strange and spectacular things that happen at the higher latitudes.


And it's not all lights either.


Sound events often occur too, with and without lights.


I have heard and seen things that I would think were alien ships whizzing by or crashing if I wasn't an engineer with a physics education.


The amount of energy deflected and channeled by the earth's magnetic field is enormous and causes all sorts of light and sound shows at the higher latitudes.

Everyone wants to treat the fireball events seen around the time of the Dyatlov tragedy as special.


Sorry, that sort of thing is not special at all.


Go spend a couple winters up there and you'll see.


I have.


And I am not impressed at all by the stories.


They are as common as hurricanes in Florida.


Sure, some are bigger than others and some seasons have few and others a lot.


But what was seen was not unique."



Let's read about an incident that happened on March 31, 1959.


Sergey Sogrin, 4th year student in UPI, went out of the rescuers tent to relief himself at 4 am and saw a "fireball" (the emergency flight of the R-7 ICBM from Tyuratam to Kur).


He went back to the tent and alarmed Meshternyakov, who was the watchman at that time, and who woke up the rest of the rescuers.


They all went out to look at the fireball the way they were sleeping or else they will miss the show.


They were wearing socks only, and trying to step on branches that were laying around the tent.


Does it ring a bell?


What if Zolotoryov and Thibeaux-Brignolles put their valenki and went out to relief themselves, saw something in the sky, Zolotoryov might have rushed back to the tent to get his camera and called the rest of the hikers to observe whatever was happening in the sky.


I am speculating that whatever got the hikers out of the tent was in the sky and not an immediate threat because they would otherwise try to put on some shoes, clothes, and take their knives.


Dyatlov went out in his jacket and there was a knife in his pocket.


Kolevatov had his Finish knife in a sheath hung on his belt.


They would also have exited the tent through its designated opening, and not cutting through the sides, or else they wouldn't arrange and look up in the sky while Zolotoryov is shooting photos above their heads.


Cutting through the sides of the tent would call for running for their lives which did not happen.


The footprints show walking in the snow, not running.


While they watch the sky something goes terribly wrong.


But they are 9 young and physically fit people, 2 women amongst them.


Behavior analysis says that it is very probable somebody to try to stand up for the group.


If they were threatened with (machine) guns and ordered to strip (Dyatlov's jacket was found outside the tent), Kolevatov must have unbuckled his belt to remove the sheath and throw it in the snow.


If Slobodin snatched the blade from the sheath and try to confront the attackers, he would have been beaten to be incapacitated, not just for intimidation.


He received several heavy blows to the head, capable of knocking anyone out, he had low foot injury (two well-known abrasions remained on the lower third of the left shin), crack in the skull (on the left side) that looks very much like from a butt of an firearm, bilateral hemorrhages in the temporal muscles, abrasions and scratches on the forehead, abrasions on the left cheekbone and eyelid of the right eye.


Rustem had bloody nose too.


These injuries are consistent with boxing or wrestling i.e. hand to hand fight.


Rustem had bruised knuckles and laceration of the skin in the lower part of the right forearm (like Yuri Doroshenko).


Now lets turn our attention to the black plastic sheath that Yuri Yudin and Rimma Kolevatova identified as belonging to Alexander Kolevatov.


The knife was a present from Rimma to her brother and she knew it very well.


The knife was found in the tent, and the sheath was outside the tent.


What is more interesting is why the sheath was without a belt.


The owner had to unbuckle the belt, remove the sheath, and then put the belt back through the loops of the pants - this manipulation itself is rather strange, because a knife suspended in a sheath does not cause inconvenience.


You can quickly get used to it and stop noticing it, you can even sleep with it without any problems.


But Kolevatov for some reason decided to get rid of the sheath.


Apart from this, the knife was removed from the sheath outside the tent.


If Kolevatov really saved his friends from under the snow slump and cut his tent with his "fink" from the inside, the picture should have been the opposite - the empty sheath is in the tent, and the knife is outside it.


That's not the case though.


Something prompted Alexander Kolevatov to remove the knife in its sheath from the belt and throw it into the snow, as if they were unnecessary to him - and this action is completely absurd in the case of any non-criminal scenario of events.


A knife dramatically increases his chances of survival in an uncertain environment.


The logic in removing the sheath from the belt and throwing out the knife can only be in case of forced disarmament, i.e. execution of the team under threat of reprisal.


Another scenario - there is an avalanche and Kolevatov, the only one with his knife on the belt pulls it out, cuts the tent from the inside to secure an escape route, then throws the knife away to help his friends out.


The knife is registered to him and if he loses the "Finn" he can get up to 5 years of imprisonment (Article 182 of the Criminal Code of the RSFSR in the redaction of 1926 with additions from 1933 and 1935).


Lets say Kolevatov is not rational.


But why stop outside and make the much more lengthy exercise of removing the empty sheath from his belt?


After Kolevatov put his "Finn" in the sheath on the snow, someone tried to use the knife.


There is no other explanation why the sheath is empty outside the tent.


Alexei Rakitin in his article "Why Rustem Slobodin froze first?" ("Почему Рустем Слободин замёрз первым?") in his online edition "Death is not far behind... " (my friend Andrei Andreev contributed this loose translation of "Смерть, идущая по следу…") makes a very good speculative reenactment of the events surrounding the first encounter of the group with their attackers.


Because of Rustem Slobodin's character, background, type of injuries and how he was found - Rakitin believes that Rustem Slobodin was the person who pulled the "Finn" out of the sheath and try to resist.


The moment when he must have tried that would be when he bent to remove his felt boots.


He was found with only one felt boot on his right foot.


Slobodin remained in the same felt-boots: the first he took off himself before grabbing the knife, and after the beating no one began to pull off the second felt from the unconscious body.


The other two hikers wearing felt boots were Nikolai Thibeaux-Brignolles and Semyon Zolotaryov.


In my scenario they have their boots on because they went out to relief themselves while the rest of the hikers were called out to look at "fireball" in the sky.


Even if the attackers did not care about their boots and marched the hikers down the slope after Rustem caused the commotion, I cannot explain why they didn't "loose" Zolotoryov's camera.


No matter who they were, the perpetrators must have known what a camera was for and that there could be incriminating photos that will survive the ordeal.


In Rakitin's scenario Nikolai Thibeaux-Brignolles and Semyon Zolotaryov were out when the tent was attacked and they hid or ran in the dark, and joined their friends later on when they were already marching down the slope.


I have it difficult to adhere to this version because the hikers were stalked before the confrontation.


I don't see a way that Thibeaux-Brignolles and Zolotaryov will come out unnoticed.


They couldn't have been out in their felt boots for more than 5-10 mins, and the traces of urine were not far away from the tent.


Nobody goes to pee in the untrampled snow.


The beating of Slobodin was the climax in the scene at the tent.


Suppressed by all seen and heard, not understanding the essence of what is happening, the hikers have already obediently performed the last command of their tormentors: "Get out of here while you can!"


Having picked up Rustem Slobodin, who was not yet fully come to life, the tourists pulled down the slope, intuitively realizing not to go in the direction of the labaz (cache), so their attackers would not vandalize the provisions they have left there.


The hikers did not run, the attackers told them to scram.


Their first reaction to the incident was quite understandable - they were relieved that the extremely shameful, disgusting and senseless scene of their general humiliation and beating had ended.


The weather was relatively warm -5°С to -7°С - and compared to the stress such cold did not seem prohibitive or even dangerous.


Very soon - literally a few dozen meters from the tent - the group was joined by the Thibeaux-Brignolles and Zolotaryov.


While going down the slope the reunited group was engaged in a animated discussion of the incident, a discussion that must have been very polemical and even conflicting.


Zolotaryov knew more than others and had the most extensive life experience, it he must have offered a plan, perhaps even imposed it on the rest of the group.


What this action plan was, we will never know and can only guess.


We know that the tracks down the slope converged, then parted, but kept a common direction, and the hikers were always within a earshot.


They certainly talked on the move, adrenaline high, vigorously proving and convincing each other of one thing or another.


So, what does it prove?


Objectively, nothing, or rather, just that the hikers descending the slope had the intention of sticking together.


However, for a psychologist this "swarming of the footsteps" ("Human Swarming and the future of Collective Intelligence") there is considerable meaning.


Hikers intuitively divided into groups "according to preferences" - when someone suggested a reasonable plan of action, supporters moved closer to him, when another reasonable proposal followed - people went to him.


This does not mean that the hikers ran from one leader to another, this is unconscious movement.


Unfortunately the tracks were not photographed and studied by the investigators.


If this were the case, after the discovery of the corpses, prints on the snow could have been matched to a specific person.


Imagine being able to say: here Lyudmila Dubinina walks for 150 m along with Dyatlov, and then moves closer to Zolotaryov and continues descending beside him; Kolevatov always remains near Semen Zolotaryov; Rustem Slobodin moves a little apart from the rest of the hikers and in a general does not seem to be involved in the conversation ...


We could have followed each of the group members down the slope and their body language could have said a lot about the last hours of their lives, about the clustering from the cedar in particular.


Rustem Slobodin was suffering from the cerebral trauma he received stumbled behind the group.


At a distance of about 1 km from the tent he fell into the snow.


Rustem lost consciousness and the ability to move about 20 mins after the attack.


It is well known that people who have suffered the heaviest knockout and who received a severe closed brain injury can recover and for some time demonstrate satisfactory condition (until the intracranial hemorrhage begins to put pressure on the meninges).


Soccer players can continue the game, the boxer can break into a fight ... well-known video recordings of athletes who received death craniocerebral injuries during the competition, but at the same time show complete self-control and external well-being for a while.


After 10-20 minutes, it ends with a call to the team physician first, and then - the paramedics.


This phenomenon of the seeming vigor of an already actually dying person is sometimes very accurately called "deferred death".


The speed of development of the process is significantly affected by the motor activity of the victim and the temperature of the environment - both slow the growth of hemorrhage.


No one noticed the disappearance of Rustem Slobodin in the dark - the group went ahead leaving their mortally wounded friend lagging behind.


Rustem was the first to die, this is clearly indicated by the high temperature of his body at the time of the fall in the snow.


Underneath was discovered the so-called "bed of the corpse", a layer of melted snow that forms from the warmth of the body.


Such a "bed of the corpse" was present only under Slobodin's body, the rest of the hikers found on the slope and at the cedar were already very cold by the time they fell to the ground.

On April the 27th 2013 at the age of 76 Yuri Yudin died of heart failure.


At the end he wasn't the shadow of himself, his illness was diagnosed as a severe stage of varicose veins.


The Dyatlov foundation funded him to have an operation, but did not succeed in persuading Yuri to have an operation, and spent time being cared for by a nurse.


In the end his heart gave in ''He always said, there is one thing he wanted to ask God what happened to his friends...''

This drawing was done by Sharavin.


Alot of the items was half blocking the entrance.


Why block the entrance to cut your way out...


I read Doroshenko asked the sports committee for a icepick.


Which was found outside by the entrance.


Possible Dorochenko, Igor was at the back of the tent, his things was found at the back along with Zina's diary...
