Hikers Walking on Crystal Clear Ice in the High Tatras Mountains

There is no question that nature is outstanding and Mother Nature never ceases to amaze. In the High Tatras mountains in Slovakia, hikers recorded video of themselves walking on a frozen lake and it incredible how clear the ice is.

The video was recently posted on YouTube and while some commenters argued whether the video was genuine, some scientists came to the rescue. Apparently, when ice freezes very slowly, it forces gases out and large crystals can form. Because there are no trapped air bubbles in the ice which normally causes cloudiness, it freezes like a sheet of glass.

Either way, it must be an amazing experience to walk on this lake and the weather conditions were just right to create a frozen lake with a spectacular view.
