Introduction

Photo not found

Pamukkale literally means "cotton castle" in Turkish and is located in Denizli Province of Turkey. The formation of the so-called castle took place after several earthquake eruptions and the emergence of hot springs, especially the ones rich with mineral. These springs have been used as spa since second century BC.

The ancient city of Hierapolis is also located on the same hill. Hierapolis together with Pamukkale is recognized as a World Heritage Site.

Getting There

By Train

There are trains to/from Izmir, Ankara, and Istanbul.

Pamukkale Express was cancelled in Summer 2008 and no information is available if Istanbul-Denizli-Istanbul trains are back on track.

By Bus

Even though bus companies tell that they go to Pamukkale they actually mean Denizli, the city centre not the tourist attraction sights.

The bus station is located in the city center and dolmush (mini bus) needs to be taken in order to get to the actual sight.
