The deposits of calcium look like snow and ice and from a distance the hillside looks like a northern European winter scene, with stalactites resembling giant icicles; this World Heritage Site is amazingly beautiful. We viewed the expanse from the town below before travelling to...More

Went to Hierapolis & Pamukkale as part of a Gate 1 tour. The gleaming white calcium travertines of Pamukkale lend the site its Turkish name: "Cotton Castle." The scenery is breathtaking with travertines and hot springs. Looks like you are on an alien planet. There...More

Hi,. How long would you say it takes to see most of hieropolis please? Would 2 hours be enough or does it take longer? I'm going in winter so trying to plan within the few hours of daylight. And how long do the pools/travertines take too? Again in hours please if you could. Many thanks
