Pamukkale Thermal Pools Reviews
Words are not enough to describe the beauty of this place. I was in awe of Mother Nature’s creation. Feel relaxed and rejuvenated as you dip your feet in the thermal water. There’s a nice long walk... more »
The site is amazing. Beware walking up or down involves some traversing of slightly uncomfortable marble as you have to do it barefoot. Simply wonderful sight. more »
Beautiful park. Be careful...if you walk up the face of the mountain, you will either have to walk back down the face of the mountain or take a taxi down the back side. The entrances and exits are not very well advertised.
It was an amazing experience, picturesque as beautiful as is on pictures. It's definitely an experience not to miss should you be in Turkey. Some bits of the tavertine terraces built up by limestone deposits does hurt your feet, but well worth the experience. The stalls on top are not great but good for quick snacks albeit a bit expensive for what it is. The Hierapolis town with Roman ruins and amphitheater is also a must see. The downside is wherever you leave your car - up or bottom of the pool; you'll need to walk back to it, which is not as pleasurable after you've done a long walk. Thermal pool to swim-in at the top did not look great but might be good when it's really hot.
