What To Expect
Pamukkale means "cotton castle" in Turkish, and as soon as you clap eyes on this place you'll see why. It's a series of mountainside terraces where natural springs have solidified into snowy-white stalactites and cliffs. The effect is strangely beautiful, a winter-like wonderland of petrified tiers and pools. The Romans first realized its potential, establishing a health spa here. And nowadays, people still flock here to admire the scenery and bathe in the main, thermal pool. You'll start at the ice-white terraces, snapping photos of the surreal landscape. Then it's on to Hierapolis, the town the Romans built.
