Description

Deep in the heart of Turkey is the primeval mountain, Pamukkale. Running down its slopes is a warm milky water that geysers constantly from a deep in the Earth. Over tens of thousands of years the volcanic spring atop the mountain has deposited calcium cliff bathing pools overlooking the town of Pamukkale. Pamukkale ("Cotton Castle") has been a spa since the Romans built the city of Hierapolis around a sacred warm-water spring at the mountain summit. The Sacred Pool still surmounts the travertine mountain, littered with marble columns from the Roman Temple of Apollo.
Though most overrun with visitors, like any place of sacred waters, everyone must remove their shoes before proceeding up the mountain. At the base, the milky rush of water over your feet is tepid, but each step takes you closer to the source of the Mother’s warmth. Half way up the slope there are shallow pools are available for bathing, and at the summit is the deep pool filled with hot water and marble columns.
