They say that most people, when asked about their favourite colour, will say that they prefer blue. In a way, this is understandable because there are so very many different shades and hues encompassed within that one descriptor.
But no matter what your favourite shade of blue, the chances are that the magnificent marble caves, near the border between Chile and Argentina, will represent it more than adequately.
This is an area that Mother Nature must have looked upon very favourably when she was experimenting with her colour palette. And what a great job she did.
The shore and the caves are lined with naturally-occurring marble and over millennia, these have been formed by the wind and the sea into the most spectacular patterns. colours and contours.
To add to this, the melting ice from the mountain glaciers feeds the lake and helps the water achieve a fabulous aquamarine colour.
Strangely, although I’ve included many pictures below (probably because it was so hard to choose which ones to include) it’s difficult to capture the sheer beauty of the colors in photographs. The area really does have to be seen to be believed.
Visitors can take a trip on one of the many boats that take travellers to the area, although you’re also able to rent kayaks so that you can gently drift through the area marvelling at the views.
