Full-Day Pamukkale Tour from Kusadasi

1. Full-Day Pamukkale Tour from Kusadasi

The rock formations of Pamukkale (literally, "Cotton Castle") are a series of white terraces saturated with dissolved calcium bicarbonate, bubbling up from the feet of the mountains beyond. As the water flows over the edge of the plateau and cools, carbon dioxide is given off and calcium carbonate precipitates as hard chalk, or travertine. The spring emerges in the middle of the ancient resort city of Hierapolis (the ruins themselves are worthy of a stop as well). Sadly, the travertine that makes up the Pamukkale is gradually turning from white to yellow, and is even thought to be drying up. Thirsty hotels are blamed by the government, which has demolished many of them. This is good for the Pamukkale, but it makes finding a hotel increasingly difficult. Most stay in Pamukkale Koyu. The Hierapolis archaeological site lies west of Pamukkale Koyu. Its main features include a temple of Apollo and the adjacent Plutonium, a cavern emitting a deadly sulphur and carbon dioxide gas. East of here is a restored Roman ampitheatre, dating from the second century AD. Most of the stage buildings and their elaborate reliefs remain intact. An interesting part of the city is the colonnaded street, once extending almost 1km to a series of monumental portals. Today, only the most northerly, a triple arch flanked by towers and dedicated to the Emperor Domitian in 84 AD, still stands. Just south of the arch is the elaborate tomb of Flavius Zeuxis. This is only the first of more than a thousand tombs that constitute the full necropolis, the largest in Asia Minor.

What people are saying about Denizli Province


Excellent guide, Muhmad made the trip worthwhile, I think the operator mistrusts when writing an email that the return was not included when it was, Pumakkele as a geological place is great, its valley is beautiful, how attraction for old people It is dangerous, floor with slippery seaweed and if you risk wearing a shoe that you want to wet because being barefoot is painful, Hieropolis is what is worth walking

We were picked up at the hotel on time. Very careful bus driver, the trip was great, no music the entire trip, very relaxing! A great private tour guide (we were the only two guests that day and still the tour was carried out very professionally) who spoke English very well and was able to answer all our questions. A very nice experience that we can definitely recommend.

A trip to pamukkale is definitely worth it! It is simply breathtaking. We had a drive of about 3 hours from kusadasi. Our guide was nice, funny and told us a lot, already on the way to Pamukkale. It was a shame, however, that the stay on site was only 1.5 hours fraud, which is a little too little for this backdrop. Otherwise great, also the restaurant we were led to.

It was one of my best trips during my stay in Turkey. The organization was excellent. I was picked up at the arranged time from my hotel. I was very lucky with professional guides John and Nizam, who were both friendly and helpful.

Our guide Meral was very informative abd fruendly. the tour was on time and was fun and cozy. we were not in a hurry but we were also able to see everything we wanted to see. would highly recommend it.
