    Turkey is a country known for its many spots that are considered natural wonders, attracting locals and foreigners from all over the world. Joining this full Side Salda and Pamukkale Tour will take you towards Salda Lake and Pamukkale. Situated high up in the mountains, Salda Lake is still completely untouched. It is protected as there is a ban to prevent any kind of construction around the lake. You can only stay anywhere close to the lake at a designated campsite just back from the beach.

    The only construction anywhere near this natural wonder is a small hotel that offers refreshments and access to toilet facilities. The other part of this fantastic tour provides the opportunity to discover and explore the town of Pamukkale. It is situated right at the base of the white rock formations that are known as travertines. These rocks’ formation is due to the waters being calcified over millennia.

    As a result, the rocks have formed natural pools with waters that are said to have healing properties. You might think these rocks look like ice, but you can easily climb to the top and discover the ancient city of Hierapolis with its amazing history. This tour is the perfect culmination of your holidays in Side.
