To continue my passion to travel around the world and made all the dreams will come true. I don’t know why, travel and places topic is always interesting? And this is become my idea to write about the greatest places in the world again and again. I heard about this place about a year ago. But I don’t know I just forget about this place. And yesterday, an idea to write about this place came up again. I love something natural and I get all the natural things from this place. Of course, this place happened naturally. God have big influence to make this place so beautiful. We just seen this as something miracle appear in the earth. But don’t forget to take care all the natural side of this place, so we can enjoy this for a long time.
A miracle of Pamukkale
This time I want to write about Pamukkale. What is pammukale? Pamukkale is a natural swimming pool. Based on Turkish language, Pamuk means cotton and kale which means fortress. So Pamukkale means a cotton for tress. Pamukkale was located in the province of Denizli, in the south-west Turkey. Pamukkale is a natural site and one of the famous tourism places in Turkey. Pamukkale is a rock mountains which has so many large holes were filled with mineral water. The holes are formed like a swimming pool. When the holes filled with mineral water, it looks amazing and beautiful.
There is other story behind the forming of Pamukkale. I heard this place was formed by the earthquakes. We all know that earthquakes always make us suffer and give bad impact. Where everything was destroyed and left sadness. But I see something different in this case. We can see something beautiful which caused by earthquakes and brought a lot of benefit for human being. In here we can see the beautiful terraced pool, as a consequence of earthquakes. Why we don’t always see something positively with everything happen to this earth, like the earthquakes.
But when the winter comes and snow falling from the sky. All the snow will covered this mountain. There’s a big question in my mind? And this is real happen in this place. When the snow covered an area, I thought everything will be frozen, right! Like a river, lake or even the sea. But why the water in Pamukkale wasn’t frozen at all. The big question is why? Because the temperature of the mineral water is about 35 degrees Celsius, so it felt very warm. That's why when winter comes and the snow covering this place, we can see many tourists come to this place and soak their body in the warm mineral water pool. Why the water felt warm, because there are many hot spring in Pamukkale. The water is like never stop to flow. With the altitude about 100 meters and the golden brown stalactites, Pamukkale always looks beautiful. Good combination between beauty and miracle.
The tourists didn’t only enjoy the beautiful of Pamukkale, but they also come because they want to get a cure. It was said that hot water at Pamukkale useful to treat various diseases such as rheumatism, high blood pressure, heart disease, eyes or skin disease, exhaustion, digestive disorder , etc. They believe this for a long time ago. There are historical records which say that tourists who are bathing in this place for thousands of years ago. This place also has some historical significance. There is an old city, namely Hierapolis. I heard that we can see the ruins of the old town which has been studied for about a hundred years. Wow…. We get complete package of amazing tourism place here. I’ll put this place on my travel list. I hope I can touch the snow here while soak my body in the warm water. I believe that’s become a wonderful moment in my life. Please enjoy the video below.
