We woke up early and headed to Pamukkale, a small city located in southwestern Turkey. This city has become a popular tourist destination for its incredible hot springs and travertines.
These picturesque terraces are made of travertine, a sedimentary rock deposited by water from the hot springs.
In Pamukkale, there are 17 hot water springs with temperatures ranging from 35 °C to 100 °C.
Before visiting the terraces, we toured around the ancient Byzantine city of Hierapolis, which is now recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
We made another detour at a Turkish market. In this photograph, the vendor is bagging Turkish delights. We thought the Turkish delights were quite yummy!
The pools of Pamukkale. We were able to walk around and inside the terraces!
A huge limestone wall.
After spending a few hours, walking around and enjoying this beautiful and unique site, we made our last stop at the Hierapolis Sacred Pool.
At this hot spring, we were able to swim among the ancient ruins.
What a relaxing way to end a wonderful day in Pamukkale!
