When you take a trip to explore the cave, you will usually find a cave atmosphere that is identical with dark and spooky. But not in Chile, here is a beautiful blue cave. This charming cave is called Cuevas de Marmol. The cave is located in the Andes Mountains in the Patagonian region, bordering with Lake General Carrera, a remote glacial lake that covers the border of Chile and Argentina.
The lake is formed by a 6,000 year old calcium carbonate wave and its cave wall is a reflection of the blue waters of the lake, which changes in intensity and color, depending on the water level and time of year. Impressively, the cave labyrinth is big enough for a small boat to slide into. Water has eroded marble to create cracks like cavities and marble caves. Located away from the highway, travelers can only access Cuevas de Marmol Cave by boat.
The tour around the cave is run by several travel agents to walk through the cave for 30 minutes, of course when the weather and water conditions are possible. There are different shades of color when the traveler waded through this cave.
The colors shown depend on what’s under the water. Some are white, but the traveler may also find blue and pink in the marble, due to the presence of minerals. This cave is located on General Carrera Lake, the second largest fresh water lake in South America. In addition to the cave, travelers can also hunt trout and salmon are very abundant here, and of course see the local landmark, the Marble Cathedral.
