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 …
... to the bus station in Denizli. We hadn't booked a ticket to akyaka beforehand as we didn't know what time we would come back so we just asked when the next bus was, the man in the office said one is going right now so we need to hurry. I was desperate for the toilet and I wouldn't have been able to hold it for 3 more hours so Zeki ran to the bus to ask them to wait so I could pee! I had to run, and as soon as I stepped on the bus it moved, I was very lucky!
... the best foot scrub imaginable! The ruins of Hierapolis have all the features of a Roman city, including temples, theatre, forum areas etc. Another discovery, which was nice being unpredicted, was to find the site where Phillip the apostle was martyred, up behind Hierapolis. The campground location was very convenient, just near the park entrance. As with most other campgrounds, ...
... awesome pictures we could take. Hence, in a few more minutes we started covering our bodies with pretty smelly mud. We actually had to enter one of the pools full of mud, took it out and then spread the mud all over our bodies (even on our faces). You cannot imagine how disgusting this was. I am not a real fun of this kind of cures since I find it quite gross. Nevertheless, it was necessary to make a sacrifice to get some unforgettable pictures. Plus, it turned out to be fun! ...
... hamami (turkish bath) of the area.
We stayed in the area for nearly 9 hours before heading back to town. The town of Pamukkale, especially for having such an amazing natural wonder, seems incredibly depressed. We walked around looking for a place to grab dinner before heading on the overnight bus to ...

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.
