Pamukkale is a small village in south-western Turkey.

Hitching in

The easiest way to get Pamukkale is from Denizli, hitching directly to the city and then taking Pamukkale Yolu which is the most transited without any doubt. Though coming from Aydin/Izmir you have also an alternative junction at Sarakoy, so many less vehicles pass by there but it is not very difficult to get a lift till the ruins and you will find on your way also another travertine source with water iron in Karahayit village.

Accommodation and Sleep

All the countryside and wood around the ruins is very suitable for wild camping, in the village there are several hotels and a municipal camping too. The local school (closed in summer) is very calm and has a very nice garden, also close to the mosque for having baths.
