Pamukkale Travertines, which is the 8th wonder of the world, is visited by thousands of tourists every year. This region, which is located within the borders of Denizli, has been one of the most interesting buildings since the Hellenistic period. There are many options you can visit in Pamukkale. You can visit famous places such as Ancient Pool, Yesildere Waterfall, and Apollon Temple. What to do in Pamukkale?
You should explore the travertine in this city firstly. The dazzling white calcite cliffs of Pamukkale consist of calcium deposits deposited by the thermal springs of the region. Water saturated with calcium carbonate evaporates under the sun. After the cotton-like appearance of the white travertines in the form of the gel, the structure solidifies and the surface becomes crystallized rocks. Due to the softness of the first travertine and white like cotton, Pamukkale has 17 hot water areas in the temperature range of 35-100 ° C. Thermal water from the source, traversing a distance of 320 meters travertine is coming. From here, it is poured into the travertine layers and is going to be 240-300 meters further.
One of the other places to visit in Denizli is Hierapolis. Hierapolis is thought to be the holy city. It founded in 190 BC. Many legendary and interesting anecdotes are told about the city. You know, it was a city with a Hellenistic spirit. However, the city destroyed after a massive earthquake. Later it was built by the Romans. Of course, its original architecture is lost as well. It lost her Hellenistic style. The bath section of this city now used as the Hierapolis Archeology Museum since 1984.
Located next to the Temple of Apollo, Pamukkale’s Ancient Pool has a constant temperature of 36 degrees. Mineral-rich hot spring waters allow you to relax by relieving your tiredness. Especially during the Roman Empire, Hierapolis and its surroundings were a complete health center. In those years, more than 15 thousands of people came to the ancient city and its surroundings. Today, the ancient pool is formed by the earthquake that occurred in the VII century. The portico built in the Ionian order of the civilian Agora, which is next to the colonnaded street, collapsed into the pool as a result of this earthquake. The water of the ancient pool is known to be very good for heart disease, arteriosclerosis, blood pressure, rheumatism, skin, eye, rickets, stroke, nerve, and vascular diseases.
The Temple of Apollo, whose foundations date back to the late Hellenistic period, is based on the ancient cave of Plutonian. The monumental structure dedicated to the most important god of Hierapolis. The sacred area on the terraces connected by a marble staircase. The lower terrace surrounded by marble columns in a large area. The interior of the podium was defined as a temple before it was defined as the center of prophecy.

Best trip ever !
I had the best time on this tour. I decided to take the plunge and travel solo. I was communicating with Leyla for this trip , who always went out of her way to accommodate me and my needs. Everything was immaculately planned across my entire Turkey trip. Transfer cars were always punctual , staff were kind and efficient. Turkish hospitality was amazing! It was definitely value for money. Worth every cent I paid for. You will be very well taken care of. Big thank you to Leyla and ToursCE for the trip of a lifetime!
It was a very pleasant and well planned 12-day trip with professional guides with flexibility to add items you are keen in (we added ATV/camel rides both which we enjoyed very much!!) There is always someone to pick you from/to airport/hotel. Tuna, the travel consultant in-charge, is very prompt in WhatsApp replies and provided us with timely updates. All the hotels we stayed in have good service and are well located. My husband and I are glad we booked this trip with the wonderful tour. 😊
I did a one-day tour of Pamukkale and Ephesius. The whole tour was very organized and informative. There was some degree of flexibility as well depending on certain preferences. I would definitely recommend their tours. The guide was very knowledgeable and fluent, the driver drove safely and is on time, and the vehicle was spacious and comfortable.
Toursce the best tour agency
Firstly I would thank Tuna for his swift service he is always there to answer your queries no matter when you msg him. I booked a Cappadocia tour with them and it was one of my life’s best experience. This tour is very reasonable and does not rip your pocket. Secondly I would thank Ozay our tour guide he was so helpful, knowledgeable and humorous he kept us entertained throughout the trip. Everything was organised and I had no issues at all though I was a solo traveller. Guys if you are planning for Cappadocia they are the one. I’m sure everyone will have the same experience as I did.
ToursCE is highly recommended for their service
We booked the one-day trip to Pamukkale (including the pickup / return flights) and a two-day tour in Cappadocia including airport pickup and drop . Both trips were organized / coordinated perfectly well. The person , Tuan , who answered my initial query, before booking our first trip , continued to be my single point of contact for all my queries and also organizing a custom-made 2 days trip to Cappadocia. He responded so well and was always courteous and prompt. Thank you very much Tuan for your help . We appreciate it very much .
We booked a 4 day trip to Cappadocia & Tuna was simply fantastic! Our room in the cave hotel was lovely, the balloon ride excellent (pilot & crew real experts) & our 2 day tours great fun. We'd for sure trust them again with any future trips in Turkey.Tuna or associate always available to help with any concerns. Just great!

Best experience ever!!
The tour was very efficiently executed! From the hotel pickup to the airport, tour guide waiting with a sign, tour ride, tour guide being quick and prompt. Lunch was great just need to make sure you have money for the drinks and the service was amazing. Make sure you count your Turkish dollars correctly and ask for change! This has been one of the best tours and excursion experiences I have had this entire time very safe and extremely timely !! If you can afford it pay for the transportation back to the hotel from the airport because taxis are not good
