The marble cathedral of general carrera lake

The waters of spectacular General Carrera Lake are shared by Argentina and Chile.  It is the deepest Lake in South America and the biggest lake in Chile.

The glittering lake is famous for Salmon and Trout fishing. The beauty of Carrera lies in its astounding marble cliffs that, over the centuries, have been wizened and folded to form a dazzling Marble Cathedral.

The magnificent marble protuberances stretch along a beachside and their sheer beauty speaks of years of water impact upon the marble which has turned out to be something beautifully mystifying, immense and gigantic. It seems the caverns formed by marble protrusions speak to each other and to the travellers and narrate their tale of patience and splendour. One can witness different tones of marble of Carrera Lake due to natural impurities. The minerals present within the rock add a shade of blue and pink in the cathedral of marble.

The Lake and its marble cathedral look glorious from a considerable distance, but their beauty becomes more apparent as one comes closer to them. The majestic sight of natural structures formed by marble, locally known as Las Cavernas de Marmol, present a jaw-dropping scene and leaves the explorers and travellers enchanted.

Although one hears of a single marble cathedral, but there are three. One is enormous in size in comparison to other two. The largest one is known as El Catedral and smaller ones are Capilla, which rises from the Carrera, and La Cueva – a spectacular cave-like structure.
