  • The place is just amazing. You have to take off your choose not to damage the surface. Entrance fee is 100TL I visited in october and it was still super hot. I got a major sunburn just to walk...  more »
  • I've seen pictures of this for years. Had to go. 3 hour drive from Kusadasi on decent roads. We started at bottom and walked up to top and back down. Recommend that since it improves on the way...  more »

  • Beautiful park. Be careful...if you walk up the face of the mountain, you will either have to walk back down the face of the mountain or take a taxi down the back side. The entrances and exits are not very well advertised.
  • It was an amazing experience, picturesque as beautiful as is on pictures. It's definitely an experience not to miss should you be in Turkey. Some bits of the tavertine terraces built up by limestone deposits does hurt your feet, but well worth the experience. The stalls on top are not great but good for quick snacks albeit a bit expensive for what it is. The Hierapolis town with Roman ruins and amphitheater is also a must see. The downside is wherever you leave your car - up or bottom of the pool; you'll need to walk back to it, which is not as pleasurable after you've done a long walk. Thermal pool to swim-in at the top did not look great but might be good when it's really hot.
