There is no question that nature is outstanding and Mother Nature never ceases to amaze. If you’re looking for an awe-inspiring natural wonder, look no further than the High Tatras mountains in Slovakia. Hikers recorded video of themselves walking on a frozen lake and it is incredible how clear the ice is.
The video was recently posted on YouTube and quickly went viral. While some skeptical commenters questioned whether the video was genuine, some scientists came to the rescue. Apparently, when water 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. This phenomenon is rare but not unheard of, and it’s known as “clear ice.”
It’s not just the clarity of the ice that’s remarkable, but also the spectacular view of the frozen lake and the surrounding mountains. The hikers were lucky enough to experience the lake in ideal weather conditions, which allowed for the clear ice to form.
