Pamukkale is one of my most favorite natural wonders in the whole world!!! Pamukkale actually means “Cotton Castle” in Turkish (appropriately named don’t you think?!). I had visited once when I was about 10 years old but hadn’t been back since and am so happy that we decided to visit once again on this trip (per my request)!
I remember it being fun and awesome but honestly it’s even better as an “adult” than what I remember all those years ago!
The sheer beauty of this white cloud dream land with beautiful aquamarine colored hot spring water is breathtaking and even better in person than in pictures. Yes it makes for great photo ops but honestly just walking up (and down) on the hardened carbonate and putting your legs/whole body in various travertine terraces filled with warm mineral water is definitely something unique to experience!
People have been bathing in these hot springs for thousands of years which totally makes sense once you’ve done so because they’re wonderful! There’s even an ancient city called the Hierapolis right next to Pamukkale.
There’s a legend that claims the mud and hot spring water will make you beautiful and some people also believe that the mineral rich waters can help cure many ailments.
Pamukkale is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a beautiful extremely unique place that I highly recommend seeing if you visit Turkey!
