Absolutely stunning!

Chile’s Marble Caves is one of the most extraordinary places to visit in South America.

The magnificent Marble Caves have formed over the last 6000+ years as the water melted from the nearby glaciers filling up General Carrera Lake and washing up against these solid rocks slowly carving out intricate caverns, columns, and tunnel systems.

Over thousands of years, this mineral-rich glacier water also changed the color and shape of the Marble Cave formations to beautiful hues of blues, greens, blacks, and yellows.

Instead of mining these unique marble rocks the surrounding area protects them while permitting visitors to come and tour the Marble Caves.
