Mystical Wonders of Earth: The Travertines of Pamukkale


Ava Bartley

Do you ever wish to be in a hot tub? Ahhh… So warm and cozy. But maybe you’re feeling claustrophobic. (Since, it is a pretty small space.) Or maybe one hot tub isn’t enough. Maybe you want more like… 10 or 20. Maybe you want a whole river full. Then you should probably book a flight to Turkey. (No, not the food.)

The Travertines of Pamukkale, Turkey, is a beautiful hot tub paradise, since it’s heated by volcanic lava. This causes it to be full of minerals and feel amazing. Of course, the ancient Roman city of Hierapolis is also an amazing place to visit if you love History. You can thank the Romans for building the city for people to enjoy the water and not be stranded in the middle of nowhere. The view is also stunning. With the pools of water, the ancient towns, and the winter wonderland around, it makes for a beautiful vacation.
