Thermal springs in Turkey

Thermal springs of Turkey are known since ancient times. Water flowing down the slopes of the mountain forms a cascade of reservoirs with bizarre limestone walls. Dazzling white terraces (travertine formation) appeared on the mountainside as a result of salt deposits from saturated calcium sources. In 1988, Pamukkale and Hierapolis ruins of the city included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

With the exception of specially designated tourist areas, you can not walk on the terraces, as they are very fragile. Nevertheless, there is a dedicated area where the source can even swim.

Entrance to the mountain is 20 Turkish Liras (August 2010). Mount is open to tourists around the clock.

Near the thermal springs are the ruins of the ancient city of Hierapolis, extant monuments of ancient architecture. At the beginning of our ry Hierapolis was known as a resort.
