1. The Dyatlov Pass mystery
This is arguably the greatest mystery ever!
Dyatlov Pass mystery refers to a tragic hiking trip that claimed lives of nine Russian hikers. The word “strange” or “weird” cannot even begin to describe what happened. On February 2nd 1959, in Ural Mountains, USSR, these hikers were found mysteriously dead. They had set up camp at Kholat Syakhl where their bodies were found. To this day no one knows what happened.
Their tent was torn from inside out. It seemed that the hikers were not attacked from the outside. What attacked them (or if someone or something even did attack them) must have been terrifying as some of the members cut their way out without being properly dressed. Some hikers left the tent barefoot in below freezing temperature.
Six of the members died of hypothermia while three others bore markings of trauma. Their bones were fractured and one woman had her tongue missing. If this wasn’t weird enough, they all showed high level of radiation poisoning.
Some say that they were on drugs and one of the members lost his grip on reality and started attacking his terrified and unprepared co-hikers. Even if that were true, it doesn’t explain the radiation poisoning.
