Is Pamukkale still a Geological Wonder?

Pamukkale is this surreal landscape made up of mineral forests, and a series of terraced basins formed from a geological phenomenon of hot springs with a high content of calcite-laden waters, which cooled and hardened leaving calcium deposits.

Will Pamukkale be preserved for generations to come?

The main current threat to the site’s integrity is from tourism infrastructure development and high tourist numbers, as well as domestic sewage and pollution. The hotel development is been pushed back and the commercial use of water comes under control which gives a return to the quality of the travertine deposit. But there are still several people that don’t follow the rules such as walking with shoes on the travertines which are damaging to the travertines and don’t walk on the travertines in any other part of the park.

Where can you swim in Pamukkale?

There are still two areas where you can swim at Pamukkale- the public travertine pools and Cleopatra’s Pool. The public travertine pools are automatically included with your entrance ticket. For the Cleopatra pool, there’s an additional fee to enter Cleopatra’s Pool, which is a hot spring. 

Can we carry our luggage and backpack during the Pool visits?

Not at all which is forbidden by the rules. The preservation and conservation of the travertines are at risk due to heavy foot traffic, which is why the park is already more than generous with the amount of space they allow people to explore. The least you can do is respect the freedom they give you and keep shoes off your feet to minimize erosion.
