Travertine Terraces of Pamukkale

Pamukkale's terraces are made of travertine, a sedimentary rock deposited by water from the hot springs. The city contains hot springs and travertines, terraces of carbonate minerals left by the flowing water. It is located in Turkey's Inner Aegean region, in the River Menderes valley, which has a temperate climate for most of the year.
