Pamukkale, which is 310 km away from Side, is located in the Menderes River Valley of Denizli province. Pamukkale was included in the World Heritage List by UNESCO in 1996. Pamukkale looks like an open-air museum not only with its travertines, which are a kind of chemical residue, but also with its many ancient cities, especially the ancient city of Hierapolis.

Pamukkale, which is included in almost all the must-see lists of the world and visited by around 2 million tourists every year, is one of the rarest examples, perhaps the first, of the places where nature plays the role of an artist. The fact that Pamukkale has 17 different hot springs in various colors, from 35 degrees to 100 degrees, has made Pamukkale a point of attraction for centuries.

The discovery of the charm and appeal of Pamukkale, where the white travertines formed as a result of the contact of the thermal waters with the air, form gradual shapes like a frozen waterfall, and sometimes terrace-shaped pools, goes back to the Roman Period.

Most of the ruins of Pamukkale Hierapolis Ancient City, standing in all its glory right next to Pamukkale Travertines, are from the Roman period. Together with the uniquely beautiful travertines, these ruins are on the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage List, and are under intense protection.

We are sure that Pamukkale will fascinate you at first sight. Two thousand years ago, the Kingdom of Pergamon could not resist this attraction and built the city of Hierapolis next to the travertines. During this period, Hierapolis served as a thermal health center, and the water springs of 17 different temperatures and colors, believed to be healing, were frequently visited by people seeking health and beauty from different parts of Anatolia for thousands of years. Today, a substantial number of foreign and domestic guests continue to visit the thermal pools in search of beauty and health. You can swim in the waters where the people of the ancient world thousands of years ago, their kings and including the Egyptian Cleopatra swam, and you can watch the magnificent view of the travertines. However, this natural beauty, which took thousands of years to form, is in a very sensitive condition and is under protection. Therefore, only certain parts of it can be walked around and its waters can be entered.

Those who want to stay longer in Pamukkale and benefit from its healing waters for beauty or health purposes, can stay in the thermal facilities located near the ancient city and travertines, as well as enjoy massage, thermal waters and mud baths.

Anders als gekauft

Es war eine lange Tour. Die deutschsprachige Begleitung kam erst später dazu, war dann aber sehr gut. Die Startbegleitung bei der Abholung und Rückführung zum Hotel war eine Katastrophe, sie hat unser Hotel nicht gefunden. Das wir statt einer anvisierten Weinprobe 2 andere Verkaufsstopps hatten war lästig und zeitraubend. So blieb am Ende für den schönen Saldasee wenig Zeit, unerwartet auch erst auf dem Rückweg. Die Verpflegung war in Ordnung. Die Kalk Terrassen sind eine Wucht. Die Tour war schön, aber anstrengend.

Interesenting and long

Habe very good and funny guides especially Hüssein but also Viola. Didn’t like the vine testing stop. Would have preferred to stay longer at the destination. Was traveling from 4.30 to 23.30, didn’t take 11 hours like announced.
