Breathtaking: Watch Hikers Walk On Frozen Water
The ground may only seem like a couple of feet away, but this video is enough to give you a wobbly set of sea legs.
Two friends in the High Tatras Mountains, Slovakia, have come about as close as a mortal can get to walking on water.
Tomas Nunuk filmed as the pair walk on a frozen lake that’s so crystal clear that it appears they are strolling in mid-air. It’s just breathtaking.
The water is so clear, it has sparked some debate over whether the footage is genuine. Igor Ludma, a tourist explained the phenomena, according to New York Daily News.
“It is only possible when the temperatures fall from being relatively mild to very cold very quickly, and at the same time it’s important that there has not been any snow which tends to make the ice very cloudy. And we have had those conditions lately which would explain this very clear ice.”
