Alanya Pamukkale Tour will be one of the best experience during your holiday! Pamukkale is one of Türkiye’s must-see destinations! It has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1988 and is often referred to as “The Cotton Castle” by many locals and tourists alike. The naturally white rocks give Pamukkale the magical scenery that makes it look like it has come straight out of a storybook; snowy mountains under a blue sky and warm sunshine! Alas it is not snow but warm natural pools that give it this mystical view. The natural hot springs rest in shelves and ridges where you are invited to experience the warm milky turquoise water and experience the many benefits of its healing minerals.
The beautiful looking “cotton castles” look magical contrasting against the blue skies, feathery clouds and handsome hills. Not only are the thermal springs waiting for you here; you will also visit the ancient city of Hierapolis where you will see some amazing sights including ruins of roman baths, temples, ancient Greek monuments and not forgetting the still amazing Roman amphitheatre. So, what do you say to swimming in the same pool where Egyptian Queen Cleopatra herself has swum? This pool in Pamukkale was gifted to Queen Cleopatra as a dedication of love for her wedding gift, and you can still soak up that romantic feeling in these sparkling hot thermal springs.
On the contrary to Pamukkale is Karahayit which is naturally red coloured springs! Taking you from one opposite to another, enjoy these magnificent red thermal waters and feel the benefit almost immediately in your hair and your skin. To finish off your day satisfactorily you will get to visit a famous winery where you can sample some wines, and also a well known Onyx factory where you can see firsthand how they make souvenirs with this marble like rock.
