Before you decided to join a group and make this ride or not we strongly recommend you to learn the story of Dyatlov Pass -
you can found some facts and theories below:

The Dyatlov Pass incident in Forteantimes

AND IT'S NOT AN ALL ! - some film directors are going to shoot movies based on those misterious events: 

Renny Harlin
 (Die Hard2, Cliffhanger)  With the fact-based film about a mysterious incident in 1959, when 9 experienced hikers were found dead. The film is about contemporary students on a trek to investigate the mystery - five ambitious American students given a grant to investigate the incident and retrace the victims' journey. This proves to be a mistake, since they're soon bothered by strange and terrifying phenomena, suggesting that the forces behind the original mystery have been waiting fifty-odd years for a repeat performance...

Simon Fellows (Malice in Wonderland, Until Death) will direct an adaptation of Alan K. Barker's book Dyatlov Pass, based on true life events which saw nine students die in unexplained circumstances while ski-hiking in the Ural mountains in 1959. The sсript is being penned by Andy Briggs (Vampire Junkies) who has a background in horror, paranormal and adaptations, though this will be his first script and bankrolled by Future Film Group's production arm and co-produced by U.K. banner 28 Pictures.
