From afar it looks like it is snow clad. The hot water cascading down the terraces is just fantastic to watch.Must dip your feet into this pleasant hot water.

Dünyada böyle başka bir güzellik bulumazsınız.Eğer ilk ziyaretinizi yapacak iseniz mutlaka yaz aylarını seçin,terliklerinizi unutmayın,güneş gözlüğünüzü unutmayın,müze kartınızı unutmayın.Travertenlerin sonunda hierapolis antik kentini gezmek için sıcağın altında bayağa bir yürümeniz gerekiyor.yürümek istemiyorsanız elektrikli bisiklet ile turlayabilirsiniz.fakat 10dk turdan 100tl istiyorlar 1-2 grup bir araya gelip kiralarsanız uygun düşebilir.gezinin sonunda antik havuzda yüzüp (50 tl) ardından çay içip rahatlar manzaranın keyfini...

The water is warm. Take off your shoes (most people just drop them off nearby) and do some wading. There are also lockers available somewhere nearby.

Took a bus trip to visit this place and was amazed at the sight of it. Spent about 5 hours exploring the ruins and amphitheatre and went for a swim in the thermal pools. Highly recommend.

Amazing Pamukkale and Big Hierapolis, Very beautiful place, a "must go" in you live time. I went twice, I paid the supplement to use and swim in the Antique Pool, also called Cleopatra's Pool. The water is so clear, a memorable experience. It is not too hot. As for the ruins around, they are big, you can freely walk for... More
