– Marble Caves or Cuevas de MΓ‘rmol are caves that have formed by over 6000 years of waves crashing against the calcium carbonate cliffs, eroding them to create this unusual and spectacular marvel
– The Cathedral, Chapel and the Cave form this wonder – one of Mother Nature’s fascinating creations that will leave you stupefied!

– By Water and weather erosion!
– For over 60 centuries, waves have been lashing against the caves. However, these are not just any regular waves…they’re freezing cold glacial waters crashing against the cliff sitting right in the middle of the ocean.
– The curves of the waves form the swirls inside the cavern.Β

– In spring, the height of the water plummets, turning turquoise and creates a reflection against the walls.
– In summer, the water level rises, resulting in richer shades of deep blue swirls on the walls.
– Since this the caves are located near glaciers, the water level is highly dependent on the melting of ice.
– The water then reflects of the wall to give the cave it’s color.

Where are they located?
The Marble Caves are located near the tiny village of Puerto Rio Tranquilo in Southern Chile.

It’s no easy task to get to these caves!
1️⃣ One needs to take a flight to Santiago.
2️⃣ Then, travel 800 miles to Coyhaique.
3️⃣ Next, drive about 200 miles on dirt roads to the lake as it really is in the middle of nowhere!
4️⃣ A small boat takes you to the cave and to get inside, one needs a kayak.Β 

Be warned!
Make sure not to go in the water as it is absolutely freezing and can do harm if you’re inside for too long- these are glacier waters at the end of the day!

This picture-perfect natural wonder seems to be worth the journey!Β One can truly say – No Filter Required.
