We will be glad to have fellow travelers who will join us. (the expedition will take place even if there are only 2 participants. They already exist)
The total mileage that will be covered on foot or ski is only 55 km. No more than 13 km per day.
A prerequisite is to have touring skis and individual expedition sleds. The participant drags the entire load not on his shoulders, but in a sleigh. There will be a limited weight limit for backpacks with personal belongings and equipment (otherwise you will not complete the stated mileage). Requirement for the presence of tourist clothing in accordance with the list of recommended items. (there will be several preliminary video calls on this topic). Since the project is low-budget, every 2-3-4 participants must have their own separate tent with a stove. (it can be bought or rented in any major city in Russia).
Who is not ready to walk 13 km autonomously? per day or who cannot afford a long expedition, you can join the shorter Fedotov-Korolev expedition, where you will be taken to the Dyatlov Pass on snowmobiles. And they will take you back the same way. Contact this group https://vk.com/pereval_travel, where Alexander Fedotov and Alexey Korolev are on the list of administrators..
All those who still want to join us, but are not ready for active autonomous movement - you have the option of ordering an individual snowmobile for transportation and drop-off to and from the Dyatlov Pass. In this case, a low-budget option for a hike will cost you twice as much. On this issue, write in a personal message https://vk.com/piarreklama47
