Travel Blogs from Pamukkale
Pamukkale consists of a handful of buildings, ruins from an old Roman town, and the cotton castle. The castle is actually calcium carbonate deposits that have solidified into travertine. It is amazing to see. To me it doesn't so much look like a cotton castle as a ski hill in the middle of the dry, flat landscape. It was amazing to see, but when …
... which was great so we could enjoy the pool and this amazing resort like hotel. The boys went to a traditional barber and had a bit of pampering while us girls watched, it really is a mans world here.
After another feast of barbecued whole brim and delicious baklava too tempting to refuse we had an early night.
Thursday we headed off to explore the old ghost town by foot followed by an 8km walk, which is part of a 570km ...
... There has been a first group getting drunk and disturbing the remaining campers (Luke was not one of them). But they had hangovers and had to put tents down and do their usual jobs, so everyone got over it.
I am going to try and tell you about the truck next, but from tomorrow we are camping for 5 or 6 nights so I am uncertain about the internet access, hence the rush of entries now. :-)
Pamukkale, meaning 'cotton castle' is famous for the white terraces. These were formed by hot calcium-laden water springs that cascaded over a cliff and as they cooled they caused travertines of hard white calcium that formed pools.
The interesting thing was the contrast in the landscape is so normal (full of grass and trees) apart from this small localised area of the mountain that is so white it looks like a snowy ...

Stepping onto the calcium path is almost surreal. I am in my bathing suit, walking up what looks like it should be extremely slippery, but it's not. Looking around, everyone is in a bathing suit or sundress or shorts, looking like they are hanging out on a snowy mountain cap. It doesn't quite compute.

TravelPod Member ReviewsMustafa Hotel Pamukkale
The guesthouse was fine for a night or two. The first night we had no toilet paper and the second day, they didn't change the beds of the people who checked out. Instead we had to ask 3 times during the day for more linen and then make up the room ourselves. The food is pretty good, but no meals are included (which seems standard in Pamukkale). The location is great. The owner is of limited help with making travel plans.
