The Marble Chapels were declared a National Monument for being formations of mineral and carbonate of sodium. Come here and discover these natural caverns in a walk through the waters of General Carrera Lake.
We will leave from your hotel at approximately 8:00pm towards the Marble Chapels. During the trip you’ll be able to appreciate landscapes full of forests of lenga, coigüe and ñire, and the vegetation that covers the entrance of the National Reserve Cerro Castillo. Later we can see the emerald green lagoon surrounded by jungle. We will cross “El Manso” bridge, and then watch the flooded valley covered with high grass and dead logs that are the result of the 1991 Hudson Volcano eruption.
We’ll continue our path and enter the Portezuelo of Río Cajón (altitude 600 mt). Here the road begins to descend until reaching the town of Murta, located on a side of General Carrera Lake. Then, we will continue along General Carrera Lake with its blue waters until we reach the town of Puerto Río Tranquilo. Here, we will sail until we find the wonderful natural sanctuary of Marble Chapels. This is a very beautiful place, where the constant swell of the lake has eroded and polished the limestone, carving beautiful figures in the cave.
At dusk, we will return to Coyhaique.
