The Dyatlov Pass incident was a real story that happened in the winter of 1959. Nine skilled alpinists went to the northern part of the Ural Mountains, which ended fatally. Bodies of the expedition's crew were found scattered on the slope of Kholat Syakhl.
Russian investigators closed the case stating that "a compelling unknown force" had caused the deaths.

God is a Geek
by Greg Hill
4 / 10
Grievously weighed down by its unforgiving orienteering mechanic, tedious gameplay and frame-rate issues, Kholat is more likely to leave you with your head aching rather than your head spinning.

4 / 10
Kholat's poor attempts to creep and confound you fail to capitalize on its terrific premise.
by Laura Kate Dale
6 / 10
Kholat's narrative exploration is ambitious, and the real world base for its plot, the recreation of exploring a bewildering and unforgiving landscape and the audio-visual design were all superb. But for what it gets right, the mounting flaws in its design only become more evident and distracting.
