Hikers Walk on Crystal Clear Ice in Slovak Mountains

By CHELSEA HUANG

Tomas Nunuk, from Bratislava, Slovakia, was hiking through the High Tatras Mountains in northern Slovakia with a friend on Nov. 30 when snowy conditions forced the pair to veer away from their planned route.

The adventurous friends headed over toward a nearby lake and were stunned to discover that it was completely frozen over.

"What we saw surprised us -- lake completely frozen with crystal glass-like ice ... so we try to walk little bit on it," Nunuk told Storyful.

The video opens up with a shot of Nunuk's friend, surrounded by a breathtaking mountain range, blue sky -- and his reflection on the frozen lake in a gorgeous mirror-effect. Nunuk then records his feet seemingly floating across the glassy ice.

Sometimes it really is worth it to take the road less traveled!
