I remember the first time i visited Pamukkale, it was sunset and this made the place almost glow in the dark, this was an amazing sight to see. The locals call it the cotten castle and has been created natually from calcium rich mineral water which has spilled over the cliff edges and then cooled to create the fantastic sight that you can see today. But with this great tourist attraction comes a very big problem which i notest the second time i visited. The hotels which were built to accompany the visitors wher built far to close to the rock pools and were taking all the water that feeds the pools and therfore they wher starting to dry out and also turning them a horrible grey colour. But i do hear that the situation is slowly improving. The hotels that were destroying Pumakkale have now been demolished or left empty. But it will take years to bring Pumakkale to its former glory and paddling in the rock pools of Pumakkale like my 2 daughters are doing in the photo will not be possible for a few years to come.I WILL RETURN IN 2004
