Pamukkale, Turkey

Pamukkale is an unusual natural and historical site with the sparkling white castle-like cascades. In Turkish the name literally means Cotton Castle. Hot calcium-laden waters spring from the earth and cascade over a cliff. It’s also the site of the ancient city of Hierapolis. Many say it’s not the same as it used to be, but people come here to experience the curing effects of the water, which is believed to cure high blood pressure, asthma, rheumatism, eye and skin diseases and circulation problems. It is a must-see if you are visiting Turkey.
