We absolutely loved visiting these thermal pools. It's nothing like anything we've ever experienced. It's like walking up a cloud. The view at the top is breathtaking. So so so worth the drive! Will definitely return to this gem of a place.

A very nice place. It is white nearly all over. You may have a bath in different pools With spesial termalwater. It is hot and they say it will make you younger again. Good for all the body and Your skinn. If you visit Turkey you schould try it. Iwould like to og there once more.

A very beautiful place, with a special athmosphere. The White against the blue sky make you Wonder. It is like going back in time listening to the Water running Down. And the smell is very special. Felt like healing of both body and mind.

Awesome experience to wall across these glistening terraces. The expanse of whiteness and the countless people relishing the experience of the carefully balancing along the walkways. It is surreal. To think that it was one of the first Spa in the world...as it makes up part of the ancient city of Hierpolis. As a New Zealander the idea of this... More

It was an unique experience to see the white step cut mountains from where the hot minieral spring waters were flowing. It felt therapeutic to bath and relax in these pools of water. I believe the mud has some medicinal value too :). Take care you don't visit when it is too hot. The day we went it was quite... More

If you are travelling by motorbike, you should stop watch the whole area and the rest in the antique pool.The place is unique.If you try to enter the north gate, it is less crowdy and you can start from ierapolis end up to antique pool and take the bus for 2 lira for the way back

Definitely one of the most beautiful and interesting things I have ever seen. It was our best decision to visit Pamukkale. Eventhough there are many many visitors its still possible to enjoy the pools and the walk up to Hierapolis. The view is incredible.

We were 2 days in Pamukkale and left what we thought the best for the last...after traveling 3000 km to get there we were so excited to see that "suposed wonder". We visited the ancient site, which is splendorous, but when we got to the travertine pools were ALL empty. Only the artificial path had water. Nobody told us that... More
