Two hikers in eastern Europe discovered a frozen lake named Velke Hincovo Pleso in the High Tatras Mountains of Slovakia. It is located 1944 metres, or 6,300 feet, above sea level in Mengusovska Dolina, under the Koprovsky Stit mountain. The lake is 53.7 metres, or 176 feet, at its deepest point, making it the biggest and the deepest in Slovakia.
The 38 year-old, Tomas Nunuk of Bratislava made a 38-second stunning footage of hikers walking on beautiful clear ice. By then, the whole social media world were amazed to see the hikers on the incredible frozen lake whose ice depicts a clear sheet of glass, allowing for a perfect view of the bottom.
Some viewers doubted the clip but a majority was convinced that it was genuine specially if you pay attention very closelyto the video above, you’ll hear the squeak of the ice as the man walked. Although they almost appeared like floating, their quick walk on the very thin ice was incredibly dangerous.
Furthermore, due to countless arguments on the web, a commenter told the global viewers to visit this place instead of arguing about the originality of the video.
Experienced tourist Igor Ludma of Slovakia was able to give a scientific explanation for the fact that the ice look like glass and said,
It is only possible when the temperatures fall from being relatively mild to very cold very quickly, at the same time it’s important that there has not been any snow which tends to make the ice very cloudy. We have had those conditions lately which would explain this very clear ice. It looks like it was about (2 centimeters) thick and it is therefore able to carry a man.”
