Magnificent Marble Caves in Chile

Magnificent Marble Caves in Chile
         Welcome to the Marble Cathedral - a natural wonder that could be the world's most beautiful cave network.
        An azure temple created by nature, the walls of this network of water-filled marble caverns show just how magnificent the precious geography of our planet can be.
        Visitors to the water-sculpted blue caverns see light reflected off the turquoise waters of South America's second largest freshwater lake, General Carrera in Patagonia, Chile.
      Light bounces into the caverns and strikes the carved marble walls, creating this enchanting lightshow.
      'It is the water that formed the unique shapes of the marble walls,' explained Ms Waidehofer in her book on the caverns, Blue Light.
'Originally great ice-fields blocked the western end of the lake - today its glacier-fed waters drain into the Pacific Ocean.
