Turkey - Hierapolis-Pamukkale

"Deriving from springs in a cliff almost 200 m high overlooking the plain, calcite-laden waters have created at Pamukkale (Cotton Palace) an unreal landscape, made up of mineral forests, petrified waterfalls and a series of terraced basins. At the end of the 2nd century B.C. the dynasty of the Attalids, the kings of Pergamon, established the thermal spa of Hierapolis. The ruins of the baths, temples and other Greek monuments can be seen at the site."

  1. I was there two years ago... It's really very beautiful place! These salt mountains look like snow. But there was very hot weather (45'C) and I was sick. So I was not able to enjoy the beautiful view. I did it at home, when looking at the photos. :)
    By the way, there are very interesting ruins near the mountains.
