It's one of the nice things to do in the area, very magical and too white i would recommend that you don't forget your sun glasses. Fees entrance is a bit expensive but the place worth it.

Go early and avoid the tour groups who turn up around 10am. Entrance is either through the bottom entrance (entrance fee of 35TL includes the ruins of Hieropolas) or the top (main tour group entrance). It takes about 10 to 15 minutes to walk up from the bottom entrance (shoes are to be taken off before stepping onto the Travertines).... More

Came here on a tour with my guide. I am so upset that the guide told us not to bring our bathing suits. He told us the water is only knee deep, which is true. But that doesn't stop you from wading in for a good soak, if you would like one, and I really wanted one! Anyway, it's a... More

This sight is not to be missed if you have time while in Turkey you will need a few hours as there is lots to see, you can also swim in the antique ( thermal pool)

When I first visited Pamukkale many years ago the pools were dirty and littered. There has been a fantastic effort to clean them up and visitors are no longer allowed to wear shoes if they want to walk over the site.

The pools were an amazing landscape to take in with the pure white pools. Would recommend those going to bring along their bathing suits and towels as there were none for rental on site. Water in the larger pools felt cold and just walking around in the formation was a little hard on the feet. Slippery and no footwear were... More
