Well-known highwayman Jánošík hid his gold somewhere around Veľký Rozsutec, one of the peaks that dominates the national park Malá Fatra in central Slovakia.

Unaware of the legend, Keric's global volunteers based in Čadca, northern Slovakia, climbed up the 1,610-metre hill in early winter. Instead of gold, they enjoyed priceless views from the peak.

Suna Uzun of Turkey and Sebastian Pellizzari of Austria recount their experience on this week's episode of Spectacular Slovakia.
