Considered the most beautiful cave network in the world, Chile’s Marble Cathedral is an intricate system of water-filled caverns set in Lake General Carrera, the second largest freshwater lake in South America.

The unique light show in the cave is caused by the reflection of the water on the marble walls. Due to the lake being fed by glacial run off, the height of the water is always fluctuating, creating an environment changes depeneding on the time of year.

The cave is featured in a book, Blue Light, by American Linde Waidehofer, a landscape photographer and environmentalist from Colorado who has made her second home here atop two marble caves.
