Full description
Enjoy a relaxing splash in the hot springs of Hierapolis, one of the sacred sites of Turkey, dating back thousands of years. They were used in Roman times because of their therapeutic powers. Also admire the white limestone terraces, known as travertines of Pamukkale.  Pamukkale has always been a very popular settlement, because of its hot springs, which are believed to have healing powers. Through this, the city became the center of a pagan cult in antiquity. Now it has transformed into an outstanding spa resort. The city was on the borders of the ancient states of Caria, Lycia and Phrygia and had a mixed population. Citizens were usually involved in the wool and textile industry. Its beautiful terraces were formed by running warm spring water. The temperature is around 35 C, containing calcium bicarbonate. When the water loses its carbon dioxide it leaves limestone deposits. These reveal themselves with different colours and shapes in the form of terraces with pools, overhanging surfaces and fascinating stalactite formations. Pamukkale takes its name from these formations.

Good tour. Driver took major highway there, but not back!

Wasted too much time driving the tiny village roads on the way back, so we spent almost an hour longer to drive back from the site than it took to drive there! Our guide was awesome! Would recommend him to our friends!
