Russian Yeti and the Incident at Dyatlov Pass

Posted by Ritoban Mukherjee | June 8, 2014 46

The Discovery Channel’s latest show “Russian Yeti: The Killer Lives”, that premiered this Sunday has raised quite a spark, leaving people to wonder once again, who killed the 8 men and 2 women on the skiing expedition to  Gora Otorten through the horrendous Dyatlov Pass in the year 1959.

Dyatlov MountaineersIn this new program, the Discovery Channel used a blurry photograph of a humanoid, and a few alleged photos of oversized footprints, to prove that the Diablo who slaughtered this nine young college students was none other than the Russian Bigfoot himself.

The show featured experts like Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization curator Dr. Jeffrey Meldrum, and Igor Burtsev, head of the International Centre of Hominology. Old evidences and findings were dug into, experts were asked for their opinion. However, the viewers of the show seemed less than pleased.

The Discovery show revealed that the initial investigators of the Dyatlov Incident were met with several large footprints of a non-human nature. However, they didn’t find evidence of any bear, or other large animal following the explorers. This evidence, however, was covered up by Russian investigators, along with other evidences of the case.

According to the show, the Dyatlov Pass explorers were subjected to some horrifying discovery just prior to death, which caused them to flee one mile from the campsite. Purportedly, they also took photos during this period. The photo on the right is that of two big spots of light in the sky. An expert explained that this could’ve been an airburst of a two-stage rocket, which would explain why the clothes of the students contained high levels of radiation, and why the KGB was involved in the investigation and cover-up of this tragic mountain anomaly. Also came out a blurry photo of a dark humanoid, which the Discovery Channel claims to be evidence of the Abominable Snowman who stalked and killed the students.

Despite the efforts, Discovery’s show has been subjected to a lot of criticism. People have been comparing it with earlier efforts of yellow journalism made by the Channel, and blaming it for trying to “make” news instead of “breaking” it.

    I first heard about the Dyatlov pass incident from Ancient Aliens, and well… I’m not sure a bigfoot can give off that kind of radiation or hit something with the kind of force it did. But that’s if you think of bigfoot/ aliens on a “biological” level and not some kind of metaphysical level. Who knows what kind of “magic powers” they have. The incident in general is one of the spookiest things I’ve ever heard.

  • david g.

    I have never heard of this incident. The way the hikers died made me think of the way chimpanzees attack, savagely and viciously mutilating their victims. A Yeti? It certainly is possible. There had to be more than one. Who knows what’s up in those remote areas in those mountains? The people that live around there seem to know. The Menk they call it.

    This show was highly sensationalized. Just look no further then the sit down interviews with the two lead “investigators” talking about their experiences. They’re trying way too hard to to be all serious and dramatic when talking about the investigation. It’s all just very unnatural and not the way people talk. It’s a shame Discovery continues to put out this obviously sensationalized crap because I think there is some genuine mystery with this case and many others involving Bigfoot/Yeti, but this show isn’t helping the cause. They did the same thing with the megladon shark special last year with all sorts of obvious, fake “Blair Witch Project” type nonsense. It’s really quite despicable how they try to present this crap as fact when it is painfully obvious it’s not.

  • david g

    How should they be talking Charlie? should they be laughing, making jokes about it or what? Maybe it’s because it was a serious thing the way nine people were torn up? Maybe it’s not the way YOU talk.

  • Charlie

    Yea, it’s not the way I talk. It probably would be the way I talked, though, if I was a poor excuse for an actor like the two goofs on the tv show. And I’m not saying the guy and the girl aren’t who they say they are and are just actors playing a role, but they were people trying to act and they were doing a pretty poor job of it. There was nothing natural about the way they spoke or acted. There was nothing natural about the presentation of the show with all it’s dark and moody lighting and ominous music. The shaky cam blair witch style nonsense was laughable. Like I said, there may be some genuine mystery with this case and there may be some truth in parts of the program, but it’s buried under so much other fake, sensationalized crap that it just makes it impossible to take anything that was shown at face value.

  • SK

    How come Donnie Eichar didn’t find any evidence of a Yeti? No pictures, no footprints. I found his account more believable…

  • Tony S

    Another waste of time by the discovery channel. Flashlights running through the night does not make a documentary. Makes me want to drop my subscription. I’m tired of these
    Mokumentaries!!!

  • Mike

    I’d bet my bottom dollar that it’s another ‘fictionalized’ account… and that picture of the footprint in the snow with the ice axe alongside for scale looks very similar to a pic taken by a member of an Everest expedition in the early 1950’s… correct me if I’m wrong, but Everest is a long way away from Russia..

  • Mike Paterson

    There’s a movement of “knowers” who are well aware of the inter-dimensional aspect of these giants of antiquity. Most will scoff at the notion but those same people have zero experience with close interaction. They didn’t talk about the prints very much, where they started or stopped. Likely due to the high controversial nature that is FACT of prints starting and stopping abruptly. I’ve personally witnessed hundreds of prints in snow that start and stop. The truth of sasquatch in their abilities is not being conveyed (by science) to the masses at this point. There’s a much bigger picture going on that is not being told. That again is FACT. Habituation with a small number of people has given us an understanding to some extent of what we’re truly dealing with. Sasquatch are highly evolved, have inter-dimensional capabilities and are far past the human race in their evolution. It’s only a matter of time before the truth is exposed on a national level. It’s already out there, understood by a handful of true knowers. Visit Sasquatch Ontario on youtube to gain a much better insight into the truth surrounding this highly controversial subject. Some of the best recorded audio and other evidence presented publicly to exploit the truth of a highly evolved species that is likely being suppressed by those in power. Keep an open mind as it’s the only way to progress your understanding of what’s really going on.

  • LaszloZoltan

    omg– you should seek help, your delusions are interfering with your grasp of reality

  • Mike Paterson

    Proof is there little man. There’s much more to this world than your little linear mind.

  • Blinx182

    I always knew of the “inter-dimensional” theory regarding aliens, but Sasquatch as well? That’s interesting. Thanks for the information.

  • Mike Paterson

    We’ve documented hundreds of prints left by our befriended forest friend who’s very giving on our intent. There’s a plethora of incredible audio and other evidence presented in a progressive format of close to 50 videos. We’ve been given an opportunity to document and learn about a family of sasquatch that continually give us insight into their world. Yes, sasquatch are highly evolved inter-dimensional beings. Their evolution is far past ours.

  • Blinx182

    I’m looking at the Sasquatch Ontario videos right now, and it’s pretty spooky stuff. It’s hard to grape how they can sound like what we’d call wild animals and people at the same time, and have these abilities.

    If you have any time Mike, can you explain what “inter-dimensional” means in more layman terms? I’ve read many theories that humans were basically manufactured from the dna of these ape men and extraterrestrials; Lloyd Pye’s work is pretty remarkable. I’m not someone that accepts Darwinian evolution.

    How does something “evolve” to a Sasquatch’s state?

  • Mike Paterson

    May I suggest starting from the swamp print find which is about the 5th or so video from the start of the list and work your way through. You’ll see the gradual progression throughout the past year and a half. We started learning of their abilities many months ago, especially when they started leaving us foot prints in the snow that didn’t go anywhere. They just start and stop, all of them. We’ve literally seen hundreds. They’re all put there strictly for us. I’d be here all night explaining what they can do and what they are doing. This is beyond comprehension for many. Some of the things that are happening are literally out of this world. All the info is on that channel in the videos, comments and interviews. The more recent interview posts will give the most up to date info although there’s been much more happen since then. Sasquatch are capable of traveling on a quantum physic level. Their abilities are known by the natives. White man is ignorant, doesn’t listen, although some of us do :) If you’re truly interested, everything is on that channel. Enjoy.

  • Blinx182

    Thanks for responding, Mike.
    You’re right, it’ll be hard to comprehend, because right now “science” and “supernatural” are seen as two different things, to the point where stuff like a creature being able to vanish into thin air is weird. But creatures giving off light [Bioluminescence] is perfectly normal.

    Scientists haven’t been doing their job. We as humans have somehow ended up needed material/ mechanical things to recreate what was once natural abilities, like telepathy and travel. Like we have to “accessorize”, while the Sasquatch can apparently do all kinds of things.

    I’m currently on the “Mythical Intellect” video. The voices you’ve recorded are spooky. If I was there, I would have packed up and moved out!

  • Deadeye

    Hello Mike My name is Deadeye I am so glad to meet fellow bigfoot researchers much like myself. I’ve heard several wood-knocks around my home way out here in the woods. I’d also like to see the area where those Russian kids died. Perhaps The Yeti felt threatened by the kids advance And how can they be called inter-dimensional beings when they were around at the same time as our
    Hunter-Gatherer ancestors? Also if they’re so much more advanced Why can’t they speak to us so we can help them? I am not trying to belittle your beliefs. I merely want some type of proof that Sasquatches and Bigfoots and Yeti are aliens but I am also open to the thought that aliens are amongst us I mean I don’t totally shut-out the idea of ETs walking amongst us

  • Mike Paterson

    Hi Deadeye,
    This September will be two years that we’ve been documenting a family of sasquatch on a private property in Ontario, Canada. They’ve accepted my presence and even marked off my tent area. We’ve recorded up close and clear vocalizations, sometimes standing literally beside us. We’re out in the open in front of the cottage when this happens. There’s been physical contact now with 6 individuals, myself included. We’ve documented hundreds of prints in the snow that go nowhere. We’ve been given an incredible light orb show for close to 20 minutes. They’ve given us drawings and are picking up and utilizing our cameras, first taking “selfies” with dozens of shots and now at a point of taking photos that show an altercate reality. The forest is brightly lit in the photos and many of them are taken when it’s pitch dark outside. We usually see the photos within minutes of being taken.

    Science and other researchers have been chasing sasquatch for decades and not gotten very far in their understanding. Native folklore tells of sasquatch being inter-dimensional. We’ve learned through first hand experience that yes, they’re correct. They don’t need our help. They’re more evolved than the human race. Their abilities separate them from everything else we know. They do speak to us both verbally and mentally. May I suggest watching from the swamp print find in Oct.2012 on our youtube channel. You can watch the slow progression as we learn and are given more and more evidence until present day. There’s others that are in similar situations that we speak with who are well aware of their capabilities. Sasquatch walk completely invisible. This is why they’re a myth. Watch sasquatch ontario on youtube and you’ll gain much more insight into what we’re dealing with. Thanks.

  • The Oshmar

    So, where are the pictures of the sasquatch “selfies”?

  • Mike Paterson

    If you have an interest in learning, then watch our situation from the beginning and see the progression before making judgement. If you’re just here for a quick appeasement without any context or understanding (which I think you are) then happy hunting. There’s about 50 videos. Everything’s there.

  • The Oshmar

    Oh, I’ll watch the videos when I get home (at work at the moment) was wondering which one contained the photos (selfies) though.

  • Deadeye

    Wow Mike That’s incredible! I do most of my research on Grass-man and Yahoo around the same time as you do in September Cause in either July or August I get too hot or I become a bug buffet so I preform my research in September when the weather gets more agreeable to highlanders like me I heard two critters hooting and hollering on the eastern slope of my mountain here in Ohio. One sounded like an owl but with longer hoots
    The other was like YAHOO! Then I heard what sounded like a battle between those crazy critters Then the whole forest got as still as a graveyard. I mean it was really extremely quiet I could hear a pin drop it was that quiet I think I’ll check out that link you recommended for me Thank you Mike

  • Archard

    The Dyatlov Pass had enough interesting points without making a sensationalist run for a crappy documentary.

    The most interesting part for me was that the death’s were recorded as “compelling unknown force”.

  • Deadeye

    The critter looks like The Grassman here in Ohio. Only a foot taller than any American creature So I’d be frightened too but I wouldn’t go into the heart of it’s territory That’s the major difference between
    Russians and Americans They spend their time dreaming while we live in the real world

  • Snowy Beast

    Eh, Prince, you might try researching your subjects in the future. Nine students died in the Dyatlov incident, not ten. One dropped out after feeling ill and was left at a small town maybe sixty miles from Dyatlov Pass. He lived to a ripe old age. As for Discovery, it broke new ground in the investigation which was conducted by questionable professionals who at the time had to fight the KGB tooth and nail for the right to disclose what few facts we have. It’s a wonder we know anything at all. Kudos, Discovery!

  • Prince Petropia

    Oh sorry, I did my research, ten was printed my mistake. I have corrected it now.

  • dj

    the most weirdest and curios things is why was their campsite covered in blood and two bodies of their comrades were covered with radiation and why did their body parts and bones were ripped ,crush ,and torned apart and most of all why did they ran away from their campsite unless they’ve encountered something that is aggressive ,dangerous, and fierce

  • dj

    oh and by the way im dj daniel joseph for short i cant believe i meet sasquatch researchers like yoou guys im a kid who likes cryptozoology i search through the internet for further info about other cryptids and their behavior and territories

  • Mike

    The photo of the footprint in the snow (with the ice axe placed alongside for scale) looks to me like one taken by a mid 20th century expedition to scale Mt. Everest.

  • Mike

    I’m not trying to rip on Discovery Channel here, but I recently watched their ‘documentary’ on Megalodon – The Monster Shark Lives. Immediately following the final commercial break, the network aired a disclaimer stating that the account was fictionalized (I missed the very beginning of the show so I’m not sure if they aired the same disclaimer before running the show). It seems to me that the Yeti episode could be the same type of ‘documentary’.
