Radiograms from the Dyatlov Pass

Dyatlov Pass Incident

Radiograms from the search party that was sent to the Dyatlov Pass give us an interesting perspective to the search and rescue operation that was carried out on the mountain. Interestingly not all official findings correlate with what was seen on the spot.




Please like us on Facebook, Twitter or mention about us in your blog. We will continue translating the full official investigation.

We're going to take out at 2 pm,  but locals say that two days is not enough for a search since we need to travel to the watershed ridge where they were seen by the hunters. Kurikov Stepan and three of my man, 5 in total. No one have seen the tourists, but they saw prints from their skis as well as a place where they slept. It seems that the group passed through those woods.

Our ongoing search for a group of students today. At 1130 it became known that the hunters saw fresh tracks ski and a camping place of a group of people at the dividing range from Suevat Paulo. We organized a group of Mansi headed by Kurikova Stepan with our radio operator who will use available reindeer to travel with a first aid kit and the products. We also sent our representative on the plane to search for survivors. He took a direction of Suevat Paulo at 11-40 taking a course to watershed ridge.
Please inform the Polytechnic Institute

Radiogram 24.2  (February 24) 10-30
Shepherd Andrew Anyamov saw some prints from narrow sport skis about 8-9 days ago. The Number of persons is not established.
The prints are starting from the upper Auspii from her eastern slope towards the north of the upper Lozvy river. We need to look at the upper Auspii river and upper Vania and Vishera rivers.

Sheet 143
Recieved by Temnikov №26. 10-45
To Sulman
We are located 6- 10 km from the mouth of Auspii river. At the mouth of Auspii river we found tracks of narrow sport skis. It is a pretty good trail, it was a lot of people. It might be 8-10 people who traveled here 15 days ago, as the forest tracks are clearly visible, although in some parts it is quite covered with snow in the open areas. We will follow these tracks to the upper Auspii where we will look in the mountains and in the valley of Auspii river where we will spent the night.



Sheet 144
Took Temnikov. Radiogram to Sulman. 26.2 13 hours.
Contact the Vizhay rescue squad. They surveyed the upper Lozvy and traces were detected. They crossed into (valley of) the upper Auspii. Their  trails that follow the ridge of the mountains are lost. Their people are divided into 3 groups, one group is on the ridge of the river Auspii
The ski track goes to the ridge where it disappears. Rescue Squad is divided into 3 groups of which one will search at the ridge. Returning unit will discuss how to find the best approach. There is only one representative who stayed to meet us.

Immediately. Soon after we descended we discovered four corpses of Dyatlov Zolotarev Krivanischenko Kolmogorov. The victims were thrown out of the tent by a hurricane, some without boots or pants. The hurricane blew in the North- east, East direction so they are all on the same line from the tent. The farthest body was found about two kilometers from the tents. In the mouth of the creek which flows into the Lozvy river we found remains of a fire with several charred logs. Nearest (to the tent) Kolmogorova has a broken head. Examination will continue tomorrow. We will set up a camp (in the valley of river) Auspii so we won't disturb the traces of the accident. We tried to contact Axelrod, but they didn't respond. I think they should contact us.

Comment. First of a body that was identified was that of Doroshenko, not Zolotorev. Secondly a damage to a Kolmogorova head was not reported in the official autopsy. In fact until the last four bodies were discovered many of the strange details found on the bodies were either ignored or were not reported. It wasn't until the last four bodies discovered in the den that the damage was very obvious and these circumstances couldn't be hidden anymore. So either autopsy intentially lied about damage to the head of Kolmogorova or it was a mistake made by the rescue team. I mean after all they did assume the group was blown out of their tent.
