Travel Photo: Travertine Hot Springs of Pamukkale, Turkey

This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of mother’s nature’s best wonders. Over many years and earthquakes, rivers changed course, cold flowing water became hot water springs, rivers deposited mineral mountains and still kept flowing over it. These mineral mountains are the white travertine hot springs of Pamukkale. They are fed by hot water springs, which are believed to be medicinal in nature. While the waters may have medicinal value, the sight of this travertine is definitely medicinal as they calm our hearts with such sensational beauty. They form streams, waterfalls and ponds as they make their way downhill.

Pamukkale - a must visit place in Turkey

It is best to visit this place on a cold day like how I visited so that you can enjoy the hot water springs and hot bath even more. Do carry your sunglasses and swim wear if you are headed there. And remember, no shoes or any kind of foot wear is allowed here.
