While in Pamukale, on March 25, seeing dry and tarnished pools instead of the pristine blue waters in the while immaculate silica pools, a fellow we bought maps and cards told us about this place, the Red Waters ( Kirmizi Su).
I was expecting somethin big and beautiful, was the exact opposite. Some small pools for locals, dirty, I would never even dip my feet in.

Check the pictures before you go, might no be worth the drive.

Before leaving the wonderful area of Pamukkale, we got a very refreshing and pleasant visite of Karahayit- 6 km.from Pamukkale with the local minibus, for only 2 TL /pers. You ask the driver to stop for the red hot springs if you want to start with, or the central bus station if you want to explore the village and get the magic turkish atmosphere of the small streets, markets or " suk" , full of traditionals flavours and naturals prod. The red springs are not far from and it is a nice walk. The hot water contain iron and minerals and its travertines are red, orange or purple, you can take a bath in the pool and taste the mud on your skin and feel the power and the energy of the earth, water and sun. On your return you can take some beautiful pictures with the local atmosphere, the mosque, and you can make some shopping too, like olive soap, towels in real turkish cotton, turkish coffee Mehmet Efendi, Yufka - to make your pie at home, very thin and soft and unique and others. Karahayit is so close to Pamukkale and so easy to go there! It is a small place but very warm and very romantic, and so generous!

I loved this place. I stayed in a hotel on the outskirts of tow, modern, with a swimming pool, but wanted to venture into town at night. It was lovely, in a rough way. I walked up a street, a market was still open and had the opportunity to see provincial Turkey as is. Lots of carts were selling local produce, including figs and raisins of different types (yellow, dark, small and big ones that I had never seen before. It was a feast and I bought many (you can bring them back to the US without problem as dried food that is not meat is allowed). They were selling home pressed oil (did not taste) and pomegranate molasses, It was nice to stroll about surrounded by locals, strolling as well after dinner.

We drove round Karahayit for a while trying to find this 'red Pamukkale' and just as we were about to give up a local in one of the shops pointed us in the right direction. It is located right in the centre of town and is in a small park like area. There were many locals paddling in the very hot waters that were cascading down into the pools so it's a great place to intermingle with them.

The moment I saw the picture of the place I wanted to be here. Getting here from Pamukkale is easy, quick and cheap. Get on the local bus which should be around 2TL PP 1 way (Dec 2014).
After we got down the srping is around 5 mins walk. The place has no entrace fees. When we saw the spring in person I realized how deceptive pictures can be. There is a coloful deposit formation and a small thermal water spring. Thats it! With civilization around you dont even get the feel of the place. A huge disappointment for me. Go for it when you have some time to kill.
The place takes around 30 mins visit max.

About 10km from Pamukkale Travetines is the tranquil little village of Karahayit. It basically has one long main street closed for traffic where you can walk and discover a variety of little shops , selling all kinds of products from fresh produce to clothes and linen. Also a variety of places to eat something. At the end of the road is the thermal springs where there are benches to sit on and little tea shops. It is a lovely experience to walk in the pools with the hot water. No entrance fee.You can get a mini bus from Pamukkale or Denizli (26km). I can highly recommend a visit to this lovely village.

We were told about this place whilst visiting Pamukkale and decided whilst we’re nearby, we’ll pay it a visit too.
We were surprised how small the red springs were and there were lots of locals there just standing and chatting in it. Parts of it was quite quite stagnant. Seeing videos about it, we thought we were in the wrong place but the videos were taken from PAM hotel nearby. (The hotel had good facilities for a swim but expensive entrance fee & also charged for everything else too) Staff not friendly either.
There was a market and little shops in Karahayıt but gave us some hostile looks as we walked through. Not use to too many strangers possibly

We went there from Pamukkale - with a local bus. It is cheap and not too far. This is not a big spring, But you can take a bath. The most interesting part of visit is certainly walk on the streets, where you can eat very good and not expencive. We bought 3 shirts, cheap but very good quality.
The next day we went there again for good eating and nice friendly chat.

If you are staying in Pamukkale you should definitely visit this gem which is not so well known but amazing. I simply loved this place. It was such a gorgeous feeling to stand in the hot water and see the amazing pools and environment. This water is magical! You will like it! 😎
