Day 2: Denizli - Pamukkale - Selçuk
We woke up at 7 o'clock, because We promised the policemen that we would remove the tent from the roof by 8 o'clock in the morning. The temperature was about +18 - at a distance from the coastline it is noticeably lower. We warmed up a half-eaten dinner and managed to get together until 8 o'clock. I plotted a route to Pamukkale on GPS and off we went.
The policeman asked us to leave before 8 am last night, so we woke up at 6 and started heating breakfast and packing. Today we had to first get to Pamukkale, walk around it and see everything, and then take a bus to Selçuk and spend the night there. The road to Pamukkale was easy, almost all the way down, stopping at the roadside and replenishing provisions from local pomegranate orchards. On the way I came across an interesting restaurant, made in the form of a castle.
The water is warm and smells of hydrogen :) There are a lot of tourists. Russian speech is heard everywhere. Well, in general, it’s cool, I liked it) Ducks also live there)
Above Pamukkale. There are the ruins of the ancient city of the same name.
There is even a museum
Why is the statue without a head?
A cyclist from Germany - came here on his bike from his country. He has a brooks saddle and all the materials, although unsightly in appearance, are very technologically advanced and expensive. I planned to finish my trip in Turkey in a week and fly home by plane.
After sightseeing, we began to look for a bus station to go to Selcuk, but we were not pleasantly surprised: there is no direct bus route to Selcuk from here - we will have to take a bus to Denizli, and from there to Selcuk. The problem is that only small buses run from here, so we could hardly persuade the driver to take our bikes with him. We rode 40 km today. Place of the second night
