This is about the time the tour buses pack up and go home. The pools which just a few minutes before were packed become peaceful once again.

Is there anywhere else in the world like this? I think not and it's wonderful. If you are in to your ancient history then you can look at the remnants of the theatre but make it quick, the real deal is down the white formations at the front of the nature park. Tip no:1: it's always hot here, even our... More

We did this trip with Arke Tui. It was well organised but the final destination was a terrible disappointment. The photos you see are old and today, the pools are either dry or damaged by tourism and nature (earthquakes we were told). I would still do the tour because it is a natural wonder of course. We went on a... More

This place is unique and definitely worth the trip. i would suggest visiting in the late afternoon when it is less warm. It is quite spectacular to walk on the white "rocks" and bath in the pools (although many have been emptied for conservation i understand).you need to be a little bit fit to go around.

This was something we had never seen before. This natural travertine spilling from the hill-side was quite remarkable. Hot thermal pools are in the Hierapolis site. Go up to the amphitheatre and then walk along the main 'road'. Brilliant ruins being put back together by archaeologists.

I was travelling to this place for hours by bus. First I was impressed by the white mountain, that you can see from miles away. After arrival I still had an exciting feeling. However, while walking up the hill, I was asking myself where are all the nice terraces, that you see fsrom the pictures on google? 5-6 artificially created... More

This trip is awful AVOID!! Trip looks great in the pictures, it is the complete opposite. My partner and I booked this trip to find ourselves stuck on a bus FULL of Russian. There was only 6 English speakers and the tour guide why we could hardly understand. We had to sit and listen to a Russian commentary through the... More

We didn't know that there is an option to start sightseeing from the top:). Generally this knowledge helps a little. We climbed it from Pamukkale City.

This place is one of the wonders in the world. White spring pools on the skirts of a hill with travertine terraces. We entered from the south entrance. There are many parking in the area. Then you climb the hill on white stones and natural spring pools. Have your swim suit on. Have a bath where gods had bath I'm... More
