by gondogoro

that hot spring was really hot enough when I had been there in April 1989 (maybe that was end of April, but beginning should be fine as well!)

We were there 2nd or 3rd week of April in 2009. You could walk through the pools (not swim) - they were warm enough - but most of them hardly had any water in them - and weren't very colorful. It was actually very disappointing; didn't look anything like all the gorgeous photos I'd seen. :-( The area where the travertines were really nice was on a side where you could not enter.

To keep all 'pools' well fed with the minerals they divert the flow of the water from side to side.

You can only really splash about, not swim in them as old photos show. However, you can have a proper swim in the covered sanctuary, amidst the fallen roman columns etc. This costs an extra 20 YTL per head.

Travel Tips for Pamukkale

Photo"s

At the bottom of the "Cotton Castle " on the edge of the road, is a nice pond, with some Ducks. Its in Town, to the left of the Entrance. Its a nice spot to get a good reflection photo of the Terraces, and yourself sitting in the front. There is a seat there for you to sit on.

ruins of Hierapolis

by Tanechka

The ruins of Hierapolis are the other main attraction. The city was founded in 190 B.C. by Eumenes II, king of Pergamon. In the 2nd and 3rd centuries, it reached the height of its development as a Roman thermal bath center.

Visit Hierapolis and its travertines

by gonzo747

This is the reason why to go to Pamukkale. The entrance fee is 5 YTL.(about 3 euro). The first thing you see are the travertines: weird salty formations. Behind this there is Hierapolis a ruined town which is defenately worth walking through.

HIERAPOLIS(PAMUKKALE)

by whitecliff62

Right next to Pamukkale and above the calcium pools ls the magical ruined city of Hierapolis. This city was built in around 190BC by Eumenes 11, king of pergamim, and was one of the most luxurious spa cities in the world. After a massive earthquake in 1334 the locals decided to abandon Heirapolis and Pamukkale to leave the ruins as they are today. Its funny coz most people who come to Pamukkale do not even realise that Heirapolis exists untill they get there, and in my opinion Heirapolis should have far more importance than the calcium rock pools (cotten castle). This photo shows one of the tombs that are dotted all around Heirapolis.
