Memorable Places #3: Pamukkale

Memorable Places #3: Pamukkale

I visited this natural formation near this small town in western Turkey in October 2010, and I've still never seen anything like it since.

Pamukkale means “cotton castle” because of the way the thermal pools forming down the hill from the spring give the impression of a white castle structure.

Wandering around the pools, feet in the water, it's easy to imagine you're on another planet, or at least it was for me as a sci-fi nerd and someone who's never experienced a place like this before!

Have you been to Pamukkale?
