6,000+ years of waves have carved a stunning set of caves along the Chile-Argentina border. 5TH Fam photographer @mydetoxtravel discovered it for herself earlier this year.
I was looking for new inspirations and I decided to do something different.
After exploring Patagonia for a couple of days, I left my mountains and drove over 12 hours to the secluded and isolated General Carrera lake, sitting right on the border between Argentina and Chile.
On this lake is hidden a pure gem called the Catedral de Mármol, an azure temple created by nature, sculpted by water.
These amazing rock formations are still little known, and I really wanted to get there before it would get too famous and touristy.
I started my paddle to these blue caverns early morning, the wind was blowing hard but the paddle wasn’t easy. After arriving at the caves, I was speechless. I couldn’t believe all these walls made of marble, it was like entering a castle.
Wandering freely in the cave network felt unreal, and each corner was a new texture, an interesting shape or new shades of turquoise.
I spent 3 hours kayaking through the caves and I couldn’t get enough of it. It’s amazing what nature create and how magnificent the precious geography of our planet can be.
