​Chilean Patagonia is home to the most beautiful caves found in the world, without exaggeration! The 6,000-year-old stunning cave network known as the Marble Caves or Cuevas de Mármol is located on the peninsula consisting entirely of marble and washed with the deep blue waters of the glacial Lake General Carrera on the border between Chile and Argentina. The area is particularly beautiful in early spring during the ice melt, when water colours are enchantingly turquoise, and also in summer which boasts amazing deep blue hues. The site is not easily accessible and requires hikers to be patient and enduring, but the spectacle is worth your efforts.
