Pamukkale meaning “cotton castle” in Turkish (Turkey)
A weird place in this planet is the popular Travertine Pools. These earthy and beautiful, breathtaking pools are bizarre in a way that no one can actually tell or explain how it has been formed.
Story tells that around thousands of years ago, Turkey, where this place is situated, was faced and shattered with earthquakes, one after the other. The occurrences brought about the formation of fractures which created hot springs. It showered the place with overflowing amounts of water that was infused with calcium carbonate. Once the water ran dry and evaporated, it left a chalky stuff which got thicker and formed massive layers of this thick substance which then turned into walls.
