Pamukkale is a magnificent natural wonder, crafted to perfection by nature’s own forces! This unique tourist destination is about 3 hours from Marmaris when you travel by bus. Marmaris Pamukkale Tour takes you to a place which is kids friendly, wet and exciting. The pure White Mountain that you see is not ice; not even salt, but it is a mountain of baths gradually formed over thousands of years by mineral rich thermal springs.
The local people call this place as ‘the Cotton Castle’. This serene national park is also declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Pamukkale has a large number of huge stalactites, mineral baths, caves, warm water pools and many small natural streams that cascade down the hill. Thousands of tourists visit this place during the summer season from Marmaris.
The hot springs in this place are a typical attraction especially during the summer months. Visitors to this place love bathing in these natural hot springs with their friends and families. Just on the outskirts of Pamukkale, the ancient city of Hierapolis was thriving with full glory during the Roman Age and hence the place was a center of cult practices and holy rituals. Hierapolis was once an important intellectual, religious, artistic and commercial center of the Roman Empire. The present customs, beliefs and traditions at this place are also influenced by the ancient Pagan Cult that existed here when Hierapolis was teeming with life.
During our Marmaris Excursion to Pamukkale, you can explore the area on your own, walk along the base of the white travertine, visit historical sites of Hierapolis and Necropolis, and cherish a royal bath in the famous Cleopatra Pool to add to your amusement. The local government and the people have tried hard to reinstate this erstwhile ruined place as a popular tourist attraction and the Cleopatra Pool alone pulls over thousands of visitors each day.
