Visit Pamukkale - Best of Pamukkale

Pamukkale- the hidden gem of natural beauty captivates the eyes of its visitors and is also home to one of the ancient roman Spa city of Hierapolis. Literally meaning “cotton castle”, Pamukkale has unique geographical formation and is hence, a UNESCO world heritage site. Tectonic movements taking place in the basin of the Menderes River triggered the rise of multiple hot springs in the area, making it a natural spa and hot-bath destination. The hot water from these natural springs contains heavy proportions of large mineral content with calk, limestone and travertine flowing down the mountain gives out an impression of a frozen waterfall.

This surreal destination with hot-springs and cold waterfalls is a great place to visit. Travel to Pamukkale and experience this wonderful geography!
