It is probably one the most recognisable sights in Turkey. It is on UNESCO’s World Heritage list which doesn’t surprise me in the least. It certainly deserves it.
What I remember from Pamukkale most is the heat (although out of season), expensive and ugly kitchen magnets – still not sure if I will ever put them on any fridge I owe… and an aggressive jewellery seller surprised that I spoke some Turkish. But apart from that… it was bliss beautiful. Please see for yourself :)
The surface looks as if it was slippery but it isn’t. The feeling of walking on this irregular “carpet” is actually very nice and resembles delicate feet massage.
I will especially remember the sunset, the Efes beer and some late kebab with a view on the Pamukkale and the waning crowds.
Of course, during the day you can admire its grandeur and uniqueness with which it was carved by the calcite-laden waters.
With my priviliged location I was able to observe the exchange of crowds, most of whom came for a one-day visit. Below some typical Turkish women.
