We admit to have been a bit skeptical about the Pamukkale hype promoted by tourist agencies. But we just loved the place! Walking up those snow white calcium shelves, discovering more natural wonders with every step, is a great experience. The children had a lot of fun (and veered a bit off the official path). At the top, the old Roman spa town of Hierapolis adds some more ruins to the excursion (we felt that our ruin quota was filled however). After watching the beautiful sunset, we returned down in the light of a full moon.
