    Walk from Karahayit to Pamukkale

    Follow the tarmac in the remote countryside

    Between Pamukkale and Karahayit countryside is all open & tranquil. No heavy traffic or dense neighbourhoods.

    I chose to walk the 8 kms, enabling me to survey the terrain. You pass some valleys, the roads fork out, heading into different regions.

    From the elevation (Karahayit end, past Hierapolis' North Gate) you figure out your orientation as you look onto the settlements in the distance. Otherwise, a large part of the route feels completely barren & uninhabited.

    Perfect for a walk on a lovely day in some fresh air, amidst attractive countryside.

    Kaklik Cave

    Denizli area - Kaklik Cave
    4 more images

    This magnificent cave located thirty kilometers east of the city of Denizli south to Haydarbaba Türbe and 3 kilometers away. Kaklik Cave was created by an underground stream eating away the limestone and sulphurous rock of the region. It seems strange that a cave should be situated not on the nearby Mount Malý, which rises to 1277 metres and is made almost entirely of marble, but on a flat plain covered with cotton fields and vineyards.
    The mouth of the cave lies near Kokarhamam Spring - the name literally meaning 'smelly bath' on account of the sulphurous fumes - which waters a reedy marsh crisscrossed by channels.

    I was amused by ancient stone water pipes here in Hierapolis. Never saw such things before.

    You may watch my high resolution photo of Hierapolis on the Google Earth according to the following coordinates 37° 55' 30.72" N 29° 7' 34.14" E or on my Google Earth Panoramio Ancient Water pipe.

    Pamukkale sediments
    1 more image

    Pamukkale's pools and stalactites impress you no matter how close or far you are.

    But if you look down while you are walking on the slopes you'll be amazed by the forms created by the limestone sediments and the changing colors due to the abundence of the substances.

    My favorite part of the theater

    by Diana75 Updated Mar 28, 2006

    Theater's arches

    This was my favourite part of the theater that's why I took many pictures of these arches.

    Located at the entrance to the theater, on the left side, seeing their perfect conditions I couldn't stop thinking how perfect was the construction technique so as they are still standing today.

    Karahayit

    Most people are so intent on seeing Pammukkale that they miss another thermal centre just 5km northwest from there. This place KARAHAYIT has high iron content in the water which makes for some interesting photos of the red and green striated rocks there.
