Pamukkale  is the most visited tourist attraction in Turkey and is often called the 8th Wander of the World. Being just 3 hours drive away from Marmaris, makes this resort the most convenient for visiting the famous Cotton Castle.  Pamukkale is  included in the UNESCO World Heritage list  and many thousands of tourists are visiting this unique destination every year. During  Pamukkale tour  you will have a free time of 3 hours to walk around and discover this beautiful place by yourself. We are sure that you will like this unique place.

Pamukkale and its thermal pools

There is a warm water pool, numerous mineral baths and a great deal of small natural water springs, which are flowing down from the top of the hill. Pamukkale, which is often called the “Cotton Castle”, is comprised of white travertine patios that originate from the carbonate minerals of the water springs. Since antiquated times people used to visit this famous SPA-town to cure various sicknesses. Tourists take their shoes off and walk down slowly along the slippery travertine slope. This is a one of a kind spot on the planet where for many thousands of years mineral-rich water dissipating of the ground shaped an intricate travertine cascades, which look like a snow-white castle.

Ancient City of Hierapolis

A trip to Pamukkale is very attractive to ancient history lovers, as you will have a chance to see the remains of the Roman old city of Hierapolis. Archaeologists think that this city was built by one of the Pergamum Kings. The King Telephos’s wife’s name was Hiera, hence the name Hierapolis. The city was dedicated to the god of wine Dionise in Byzantine period. Initially, some buildings on the site of Hierapolis were built in the second thousand BC.  It was in 190 BC, when the king of Bergame founded here a city called Hierapolis.  The magnificent city was later destroyed by an earthquake and rebuilt. Then it became a part of the Roman Empire. Visiting the Hierapolis includes strolling through the biggest antiquated Roman necropolis (an ancient graveyard) in Turkey.   Walking by foot for 2km, tourists will see various tombs and sarcophagi, a complex of antient bath, Roman and Byzantine gates as well as an ancient theatre, which could accommodate 10 000 visitors. In 1988 Hierapolis was proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

While in Pamukkale, you can also swim in the mineral waters of the antiquated Pool of Cleopatra (this is optional). There are sections and architraves of the colonnade at the bottom of a natural pool, which are clearly seen through transparent water. Mineral water in the pool has a temperature of the human body (around 36C) and is rich in calcium. The Cleopatra Pool is famous for its renewing and reviving properties.

amazing trips in marmaris thanks Brendan
I would highly recommend yagna travel as Brendan is very nice guy. We booked 4 excursions and got 2 free excursions. One of the excursion we booked is to pamukkale, by mistake the bus driver didn’t take us on Wednesday(He thought we are not on his list in fact we are). Brandan managed to change the excursion on Friday. Then we got bad news that excursion has been postponed to Saturday ( that day we will go back to the Uk) due to lack of people. Fortunately , Brendan made calls and finally got us a private trip to pamukkale( one care, one guide). He paid this from his own pocket. We really appreciated what he did for us. He is amazing!

Woow nothing can fault this great day. We were 4 of us. Me my wife and 2 children. 6 yers old and the elder one is 10 years old. Firstly had a doubt about how children will behave on such a trip but lackily they loved it. Bing pickeed up from my accomodaion in the morning at 06:45 and had a very good airconditioned bus taking us to our destination.
