Natural thermal spa on a snowy cotton castle.

Pamukkale, meaning “cotton castle” in Turkish, is a natural wonder of Turkey. The surreal landscape is created by calcite-laden hot springs that have been cascading over the cliff face for thousands of years, forming a series of terraced pools. The brilliant white of the calcite gives the site its otherworldly appearance. Visitors can walk among the pools and even swim in them, but be warned: the water is hot! Pamukkale is also home to the ancient city of Hierapolis, with its well-preserved Roman ruins.
