Lake Salda

Nestled within the heart of the Taurus Mountains, this breathtaking lake boasts crystal-clear turquoise waters and pristine white sandy beaches, mirroring the iconic landscapes typically associated with the Maldives.

Lake Salda is considered one of the cleanest lakes in Turkey. The combination of unique mineral composition and rich biodiversity adds to its natural allure. The surrounding area is home to lush forests and diverse flora and fauna,

The mineral-rich clay of the lake’s edges is also reputed for its skin benefits, drawing visitors who seek natural wellness treatments. Authorities have implemented measures to preserve its pristine condition, ensuring the lake remains an unspoiled gem for future generations

Pamukkale Travertines and Calcium pools

Pamukkale means "Cotton Castle"... Designated as a UNESCO Heritage Site in 1988, this natural phenomenon with its stunning white calcium cliffs and beautiful turquoise pools is truly a sight to behold. It's easy to understand why when you arrive; it’s like stepping into an alien landscape.

Cleopatra’s Pool

Do not leave Pamukkale without taking a healing dip in the sacred spring of Cleopatra’s Pool. Swimming in the vibrant waters of the Cleopatra Pool should top every Turkey Travel Program. At the bottom of the crystal clear Pool lies a stunning collection of striated columns and column capitals, a striking reminder of the Pool’s venerable heritage.

Hierapolis Ancient Site and Archaeological Museum

After walking along the terraces, we will take a short walk to the city of Hierapolis, also known as the 'Sacred City.' Just outside the main entrance lies the Necropolis, containing over 1,200 tombs and sarcophagi for people who wished to be buried here. Among these tombs is the Martyrium, built on the spot where Saint Philip is believed to have been martyred in AD 80. The proximity of the hot springs and steaming fissures led people to believe they eased the journey to the Underworld. The Baths of Hierapolis, sourced from these springs, were particularly popular among vacationing Romans. You will notice the massive Great Theatre carved into the hillside dominating Hierapolis's landscape.
