Pamukkale 2-day Tour from Side is a cultural tour we organize with 1 night accommodation in Pamukkale. Pamukkale is 300 km away from Side. Pamukkale and Hierapolis are known as one of the oldest thermal cities in the world. Also Pamukkale is on the UNESCO world heritage list. Pamukkale’s thermal waters are around 30 degrees and it is said to be good for some diseases. Pamukkale, Turkey’s tourism brand and world-renowned natural beauty has calcium white travertine terraces. Thermal springs in an important fault line of Western Anatolia in Pamukkale are heated by underground heat and come out at 33-36 ° C. Water contains calcium hydro carbonate. Tectonic movements have triggered frequent earthquakes in this area and resulted in the emergence of numerous hot springs. The water coming from these sources revealed Pamukkale with its large mineral content. When hot water comes into contact with carbon dioxide, it begins to lose its temperature and also carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide are released into the air. As a result, calcium carbonate is precipitated. Thus, water creates a magnificent travertine. Around the Pamukkale area, you will see a number of famous sites and thermal pools, including the Greek-Roman city of Hierapolis, the Necropolis, the Cleopatra Pool and the well-preserved ruins of the Red Water. Spend the night in a hotel close to Pamukkale travertines, and you will have free time to relax and enjoy the surroundings.
