The famous hall "Halle der Circe" is located at the end of the highest-lying touristic cave in the world (2100 m alt.), which can be reached only by experienced cavers. With proper lighting the permanent ice in the hall shines in beautiful blue tones, which add enchantment atmosphere to the frozen hall. (Peter Gedei / National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest)
