Day Trip to Pamukkale From Alanya
One of the most important sights, offering by the nature are without doubt the lime sinter terraces of Pamukkale. The water of the mountain spring is strongly enriched with carbonic acid and lime. While the water flows over the slopes, the lime particles sediment and thus form the unique, bizarre terraces.
The ancient city Hierapolis is another highlight of the excursion. During the tour passing through the Taurus Mountains you will get to know the Turkish culture and its people in interesting villages and cities. You will visit quite impressing lakes and learn a lot of interesting facts about the countryside and trades. We will stay in Pamukkale 4 hours.
