(3)  Pamukkale
The mythical images of Pamukkale or the Cotton palace are probably one of the reasons I was keen to visit Turkey for the third time. Just like the Blue Lagoon in Iceland, I was just curious about what these were really like. Live. Pamukkale is all naturale, salt deposits and hot springs carved out of this elevated land mass in Hieropolis.  Thousands of years ago, people flocked to Hieropolis for the healing qualities of the hot springs. Cleopatra herself allegedly visited the magical pools.  The walk down to Pamukkale is dream-like. Pool after pool of warm, clear (or sometimes cloudy”blue”) water, flowing atop the white solid base of salt.  Think hardened white sand.
