A video of Estonian slackliner Jaan Roose leaves viewers breathless as the daredevil walked a half-kilometer tightrope 200 meters above the scenic Bozzhyra tract in Mangistau, QazMonitor reports citing the press service of the Ministry of Culture and Sport.

Roose, who is a professional stuntman and holder of numerous records around the world, said that the Bozzhyra tract struck him as a place of ethereal beauty and that he was amazed at the fact that the area was once submerged under the waves of the ancient ocean of Tethys.

He and his film crew stayed at the site for five days to perform the stunt – walking on the tightrope hanging between two “sugar castles”.

“Bozzhyra was a challenge for me. It's one of my most challenging, but also one of my most beautiful projects,” the stuntman shared.
