One of the UNESCO World Heritage sites is Pamukkale, which has white travertines and historic towns. Only Yellowstone National Park in the United States of America is comparable to these “Cotton Castles,” located in the Denizli area of Turkey and around 310 kilometers from Belek (there, the rock formations are yellow and not white). Calcified water gushing from the ancient towns of Hierapolis and Necropolis has been and is still forming the rocks.
When you approach from a distance, the water looks to be blue. Pamukkale, meaning “cotton castles” in Turkish, is what you see when you first arrive there. You can see them for kilometers before you ever get there. You might be excused for mistaking them for snow, but when you go closer and step on them, you’ll see that they’re non-slippery rocks. They are easy to walk on; they are only slippery if green algae in them or around the lakes.
Travelers have been coming to Pamukkale for hundreds, even thousands of years, to drink the waters since it is thought they have therapeutic abilities. Furthermore, the ancient towns of Hierapolis and Necropolis, concealed at the top of the travertines, are just a prologue to these incredible rock structures.
Pamukkale Tour from Belek costs (price) 32 € for adults, 18 € for children 4 between 9 years old and children under 4 years old are free.

You will be picked up from your Belek hotel or apartment in the early morning and driven 250 kilometres to the province of Denizli, where the Pamukkale travertines are, by a comfortable air-conditioned bus. A breakfast stop will be made along the way, and then you’ll stop for lunch at another restaurant where you can admire the breathtaking Turkish scenery.
You will receive a brief history lesson on the travertines upon arrival at Pamukkale from your English-speaking Tour Guide, who will be with you the entire day. After that, you will have time to explore this incredible scenery and take in the expansive views of the far-off countryside.
As you gently make your way up to the ridge that hides the ancient city of Hierapolis, you may swim in the rock pools and take in the scenery. As some of the rock ponds are small, non-slippery, and warm, Mother Nature’s own paddling pools, physically capable younger children love this experience! The climb may be done at any speed and is acceptable for most physically fit persons.
In your spare time, you may explore the city’s historic alleys after ascending the travertines and discovering Hierapolis, a wonder with its historic Roman baths and museums. You will also get the chance to swim in Cleopatra’s Pool.
You may take a soak in the 30-degree celsius waters that Queen Cleopatra once frequented as the spa waters gurgle up from the undersea source, which is safely enclosed. Who could resist the temptation to swim in the supposedly curative waters of such a naturally beautiful region with its fallen columns immersed in the sea?
You can further rehydrate or take a break in the garden area of this magnificent location at the contemporary Reception Center at the entrance to Hierapolis and Necropolis. In addition to this region’s stunning flora and wildlife, there are restrooms, washrooms, and several gift stores for you to browse.
You will meet your guide at the predetermined location and start your journey back to Belek once you have satisfied your sense of history and wonder. A long day, but undoubtedly worthwhile for the opportunity to visit this magnificent region and its historical sites.
Children from 0 to 7 years old will be admitted free of charge to Hierapolis and Pamukkale if evidence of age is shown. The entrance price to Cleopatra’s pool is decreased.
If you book the basic from Belek to Pamukkale Trip, lunch and admission to the historical sites are extra fees that must be paid locally. They are included in the all-inclusive trip fee. You will be obliged to pay for drinks taken during the day.
Bring decent walking shoes, a swimsuit, sunglasses, and towels. A decent sun hat is also recommended because there is no shade when ascending the travertines. Please keep in mind that you are not permitted to wear shoes when walking through the travertines. This isn’t an issue because they’re simple to scale, but someone will be on hand to double-check. This regulation is in place to protect the whiteness and purity of the rocks themselves, and no, flipflops are not permitted.
Carry your camera for those great moments along the route, and don’t forget to bring some money. Not only for beverages or snacks to accompany your meals, but also for those presents or mementos that will definitely attract your attention.
At first appearance, the travertines appear to be a challenging ascent. If you take things carefully, you’ll be astonished at how simple it is. Of course, the kids can nearly sprint to the summit!
The Pamukkale Tour from Belek is for everyone who wants to experience something different and enjoy Turkey’s antique side. It is feasible for those who are less physically capable to take the bus to the top of the Travertines and yet enjoy the vistas and the historic city itself. The carriages are air conditioned and spacious. Smaller children may find the day exhausting, however breaks are scheduled throughout the day.
It’s 32 € for adults, 18 € for children 4 between 9 years old and children under 4 years old are free.
The travertine pools themselves are shallow and unsuitable for swimming, however you are encouraged to paddle. Cleopatra’s pool is better suitable for a leisurely swim and requires an admission charge that is payable locally.
