Kholat Syakhl, a transliteration in Russian of Holatchahl, meaning "Dead Mountain" in Mansi (lit. Мёртвая вершина Myórtvaya vershína in Russian) is a mountain in the northern Ural region of Russia.
The name of this mountain pass simply means "lack of game" for Mansi hunters. The Mansi word kholat (meaning "dead" or "meager") is a relatively common name on their territory and is part of at least 3 other topographic objects.
On February 2, 1959, a group of ski hikers led by Igor Dyatlov mysteriously perished on the east shoulder of the mountain.
