They disappeared in February of 1959, a well-equipped group of seasoned hikers on one of the most remote mountains in the world. What transpired in the cold of the Siberian winter was classified by Soviet authorities for decades. It remains an unsolved mystery today, and the location of those events now bears one of the hikers names— Dyatlov Pass.
On this episode of The Get Lost Podcast, cinematographer Brian Weed joins us to talk about his journey to Dyatlov Pass as a crew member for Discovery’s Channel’s Expedition Unknown. Along the way, he details his own unusual experiences in the Ural Mountains and posits a theory for the group’s disappearance.
