If we are talking about natural beauty, the Pamukkale is one of the most epic wonders. With its fluffy cotton pools and geologic heritage, it is beautiful from all angles. The snowy white calcium cascade terraces called travertines flow down into the Menderes Valley like golden hairs of the mountains in the sunset.
The Pamukkale and the Hierapolis, an ancient city, were both recognized as a part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1988. For locals, it is also the 8th Wonder of the World. The name Pamukkale means ‘Cotton Castle’ in Turkish. Besides its adorable beauty, it is a geological formation which is based on 17 main hot water springs that are actually sources of the calcium carbonate which gets deposited as mineral rock on the surface.
