And wondered how best to go to the mountain Chistop. I told them about it and advised them to go through the hundredth kilometer ie quarter, as there would be better to go for expensive cars. But they did not listen to me, and left for 41 quarter and 2 northern mine.
The fact that they were killed, I learned from the village citizens Vijay. Tourists killed because it seems to me that there was a strong hurricane, and they are probably at the time asleep and heard his frightened and povyskakivali of the tent, as the hurricane knocked down and swept down into the ravine. In early February in the village, too, Vijay was a strong wind and storm, and on the mountain Urals the more the wind was strong.
