Pamukkale is a UNESCO World Heritage Site situated near the foothills of the Taurus Mountains. Deep underground beneath what was once the ancient Roman City of Hierapolis lies a vast source of water heated by volcanic lava.
Gleaming white petrified waterfalls, and a series of travertine terraced basins straddle the plateau, and run down the hillsides of Pamukkale. Created over more than two millennia the hot mineral cascades transform calcium carbonate into travertine.
