Pamukkale travel,Pamukkale Excursion,Travertens,Thermal Water
Travertine is a kind of rock which is formed as calcium bicarbonate
precipitates out of hot spring water. It may be formed in many ways
under different atmospheric conditions. Geological activity of the
past affected a large area in which the Pamukkale thermal springs
are found. There are 17 thermal sources in this special area with
temperatures ranging between 35-100°C. The source of Pamukkale is
only one unit of that whole area.
The thermal water flows to the top of the cascades by a
320-meter-long channel and then flows on the cascades about 240-300
m. CaCO3 begins to precipitate on the cascades as the carbon
dioxide evaporates, but in the beginning the precipitate is soft
like gel. It needs time to completely dry and harden. In order to
protect the cascades from destruction and to preserve their natural
beauty, entrance to the travertine area has been prohibited since
15 May 1997.
You can see a limeston formation of 100 m high in the colour of
eight gray snow. It is called "PAMUKKALE" in Turkish,meaning
"Cotton Castle". Thermal bathes with swift flowing waters are known
by their healing properties. You can also admire the remaining
ancient city at this wonderful place.
