Pamukkale

Visit Pamukkale

Introduction

The white mineral formations at Pamukkale have become recognised worldwide for their unusual tiered formation, hanging like rice paddies along the edge of a 100m high plateau. Over the years water cascading from calcium rich springs has formed hard travertine rims that collect into misty pools.

Dubbed a geological fairyland, Pamukkale World Heritage spa is as popular today as it was in Roman times, when the ancient city of Hierapolis was built to harness this naturally occurring bounty. Half submerged in one of the pools you can see the remains of Apollo's temple and we recommend packing your swimming costume, as many of these pools are still open to bathers.

In Pamukkale town large complexes have been built to capitalise on this popular attraction, but many feel this over-commercialisation has ruined the area. Although no longer as unspoilt as it once was, this site still merits a visit, especially at sunset when the whole hillside is awash with colour.
