The natural beauty of Pamukkale

Pamukkale is a small and pretty boring town. But there is one really good reason to visit. To walk up to- and to walk around the ancient town of  Hierapolis, surrounded by the beautiful natural chalk pools hanging from the cliffs, is a great way to spend one afternoon. Watching the, so called, travertine’s at sunset is a must. Unfortunately most of them are today dried out but there are two places where the pools are still filled with water. It is strictly forbidden to swim in them, but to watch their beauty from a distance is at least as satisfying. I walked up the hill around four in the afternoon. Took a walk around Hierapolis and then just managed some nice shots of the pools before sun set.

  1. So nice to follow the documentation of your trawelling. It looks like I have to visit this part of Europe? Far away from ordinary lazy hollidays.
    Looking forward to see more.

    • Thank you Ingemar, you would love Turkey. And I heard there is plenty of good trekking opportunities in the Eastern part of Turkey,maybe something for you?

  2. Thanks for the “like!” I love your pictures. Turkey is on my list of “must visits.”

  3. I want to see the pools depicted in your last two images! I’ve seen various photos of them on the web and from above they have the most beautiful patterns to them!

    • Pamukkale is one of the highlights in Turkey, and to be more specific, it is those pools that make it worth going there!

  4. Gosh, those last 2 photos are stunning. Gorgeous!
