The Pamukkale tour is considered as a hot water therapy tour since ancient times and a destination for those wishing to medical tourism thanks to its calcium-rich waters and minerals that formed through the ages terraces of travertine deposits, a type of limestone.
The hot water basin in the ancient city of "Hierapolis" was formed by natural factors, from the accumulation of hot water, and the remains of the city's column debris due to an earthquake in the region in 692 AD.
The water temperature in the archaeological basin, which remains stable at 36 ° C despite the difference of seasons between summer and winter, allows visitors a unique experience among the monuments.
The history of the city of Hierapolis dates back to about 2800 years, when foreign tourists began to increase interest in the archaeological basin located behind the graduated springs, as the basin takes its visitors to a journey through time towards the past while they are sitting in the water amid the remains of ancient columns and marble pieces.
Every day, Pamukkale and the Old Town visit Herapole around 5,000 people with its numerous Pamukkale tour programs. Many tourists come to Pamukkale two-day tours to spend more time in the Cleopatra Swimming Pool, the ancient city of Herbol, seeing the sunset on the white terraces. Before 1996, a few hotels were located directly on the white terraces. This caused great damage as hotels in this area used thermal water in their swimming pools. The water that left all the calcium in the hotel pools after it fell on the white terraces in Pamukkale, but it did not bring them any benefit. White waterfalls began to lose color in proportion to the number of tourists in Pamukkale. Since 1996, hotels have been closed, and today Pamukkale is protected by UNESCO, which has developed a special program to whiten Pamukkale terraces.
