But it is not in vain that they say: he who seeks will always find. Once squad reached a deep gorge that was squeezed on both sides stone walls. It gradually expanded, and as a result, travelers ended up in a spacious valley. A dark blue splashed before them the water of a round lake, and on the other side people saw some ancient ruins. It was impossible to get to the ruins by land – sheer cliffs rising right at the water’s edge interfered. Travelers decided to put together rafts (the shore on their side was covered with forest) so that cross the lake safely. Night was approaching, therefore this matter it was decided to do the next morning. Having set up camp, travelers had dinner and went to bed. At night, as usual, put up sentries.

The next morning, waking up from a sound sleep, Captain Butterfield left tents and saw that all his soldiers disappeared without a trace. Wherein a fire was burning and food was cooking in a pot. There were tents and all equipment. And instead of people, the captain found only them uniform neatly folded on the shore. It looked like the soldiers, stripping, rushed into the water.

Butterfield approached the lake – and recoiled in horror: from the blue truly devilish eyes looked at him with burning eyes a person whose hypnotic gaze imperiously beckoned to him. FROM with great work, Richard looked away from his terrible face and turned to escape…

Every minute the poor captain got worse and worse: the head was spinning, consciousness, viscera, and skin were turbid as if burned by fire. On his way there was some kind of cave into which Butterfield crawled and soon died there.

New victims of the Valley of the Seven Deaths

Graham Dickford deciphered the old diary and quite accurately located the legendary valley. He intended any at the cost of taking possession of treasures and convinced several friends join him. I didn’t embarrass the mad adventurer and didn’t frightened by the tragic story of captain Butterfield and his people. IN 1902 a new expedition of treasure hunters went to the mountains and … gone.

After some time, one of the local villages showed up extremely ragged man with a crazy look. He had a fever, his skin scabs were covered from terrible burns, and the hair on his head fell out to shreds. The ragged man mumbled something about friends who were unclean power destroyed in a hated valley. This man turned out to be Graham Dickford. No wonder he was considered insane and hid in the hospital. However, he scared the staff there with incoherent stories. about a huge flying fire, about a ghost killing with a look, about some night shadows … Three days later, the unfortunate died in terrible torment.

Then the authorities did not investigate this amazing incident. However, in 1906. the government was forced equip a scientific expedition to the damned valley. Insisted on it senior relative of one missing member of the squad Dickford.

The expedition gathered impressive information. It turns out the lost mountain gorge is teeming with poisonous snakes, and some of their species live only in this place.

One day, one of the members of the group lit a match – an ordinary match, and at that moment there was a monstrous roar, from one to another pulsating flames swept the end of the valley. People, caught in their way, received terrible and unhealed burns.

In an attempt to escape from the attack of flashing lights, two men rushed down to the edge of the lake, but lost their balance and collapsed to the ground. When the lights, as suddenly as they appeared, disappeared, the rest members of the group hastened to help the victims. But it was too late: those turned out to be dead. And everyone else, going down to the lake, felt dizziness and sudden deterioration in well-being.

All expeditions to the Valley of the Seven Deaths end catastrophically

In 1911 one more expeditionary was equipped in a fatal place squad. And this time the valley has fully justified its gloomy title. Of the seven members of the group, she immediately killed five. Two survivors were later told that their comrades went down to the water and suddenly at an incredible speed began to spin in place, after which fell dead.

The survivors experienced such wild horror that they rushed away without seeing anything in front of you. With great difficulty they, exhausted, hungry, went out to the people. Unfortunately, these poor fellows briefly survived the deceased colleagues.

The last attempt to enter the deadly valley was undertaken in 1919 This time, scientists suggested that the cause all the tragedies were poisonous lake fumes, and took care on personal protective equipment. Wearing special costumes and gas masks, they examined part of the gorge and at the same time found seventeen skeletons.

Then, three mountaineering researchers decided get to the ruins on the opposite side of the lake. To do this, they it was necessary to climb steep cliffs and go along their crest.

To make a similar rise in gas masks was very difficult, and climbers decided to neglect the means of protection. The three brave ones managed to climb to the top; standing upright people started laughing, joking, waving and shouting something to the comrades below. Suddenly all three jumped as if on command from the cliff – and the dark water of the lake closed over them …

This sad event forced the colonial authorities to ban visit to the ominous valley; subsequently this prohibition was confirmed by the government of independent India.
