PAMUKKALE – DENİZLİ - TURKEY Altitude: 428 m

At Pamukkale ("Cotton Castle") nature has produced a sight of spectacular beauty. For thousands of years an underground spring located deep in the earth has been pouring out streams of hot min­eral-saturated water. As it has flowed down the mountainside the steaming water has hollowed enormous circular basins in the earth, and their rich mineral content has coated them in a smooth layer of dazzlingly white calcareous rock.  To the ancients such beauty could only mean that the place was holy to the gods. Built near the natural hot springs1 the grand city of Hierapolis attracted a steady stream of pilgrims, who came to bathe in the curative waters. Pa­mukkale is located 250 km from İzmir 100 km from Aydın and 20 km from Denizli.
