Pamukkale Hierapolis Tour Overview
You will witness this phenomenal site well before you arrive in the village below. The water from these springs has a high mineral content (chalk, limestone and travertine) that cascade down the mountain, giving rise to the complexion of the mountains; resembling a frozen waterfall. The water contains a large amount of hydrogen carbonate and calcium, which results in the precipitation of calcium bi-carbonate.
The combination of these elements attribute to the surreal landscape of Pamukkale as well as its place on the World Heritage list. Long before this listing, the Romans recognised the appeal of the area, building the spa city Hierapolis.
