We traveled from Gumbet to Pamukkale by bus. It took us 4 hours to drive. Pamukkale is a natural site in Denizli Province in southwestern Turkey. The word Pamukkale means “cotton castle” as it is surrounded by the mountains of white color like a cotton. The city contains hot springs and travertines, terraces of carbonate minerals left by the flowing water.
We traveled to Pamukkale with a group of tourists and had a guide who gave us an information about sightseeings in English language. I wasn’t able to follow the guide as I was traveling with my family and kids. It takes more energy and time when you travel with kids 🙂 Unfortunately we had a limited time, just 2.5 hours to walk in Pamukkale. During this time we could only change our outfits and swim in a main hot spring and one travertine. The rocks in travertines was slippery and we had to take off our shoes. Wearing shows is prohibited to protect the deposits. It was a challenge for us to walk in travertines with kids on bare foot. We left many interesting things to see due to limited time. I advice you to spend at least one day in Pamukkale if you want to see everything.
