The Marble Caves, Chile. These caves have formed in a pure marble and are bathed in the deep blue water of General Carrera Lake. The enormous General Carrera Lake is fed by rivers coming from several glaciers of Patagonian Andes. The ice of glaciers contains small particles and, when the ice melts, many particles remain suspended in the water. This gives an unusual effect - the glacial meltwater is slightly turbid and it refracts the blue part of sunlight.
Cave 5 - Yhis cave has been nicknamed the most beautiful ice cave in the world. It is found in Patagonia, Chile. It looks like a marble cathedral. People visit this cave to see the colourful blue wall. The lake that runs through it is also a must see - its waters are crystal blue ~
