Lake Salda & Pamukkale excursion would perhaps be better renamed the ‘white’ tour as you will be astounded by the brilliant whites of both the lake at Salda and Pamukkale. White will never have seemed whiter and leading brand detergents should be using these places in the adverts! Of course, as well as the awesome scenery you will be exposed to the history and the culture that the sites have to offer and you will return home feeling like you have experienced some of the best that Turkey has to offer!
Alanya is the perfect location to access many other wonders in Turkey and perhaps one of the most fulfilling excursions is combing a visit to the white cascades of Pamukkale with the white shores of the Salda Lake both of which are popular destinations for locals to visit as well as international guests.
Salda Lake is formed inside a crater remaining from millions of years ago and is a freshwater lake. It is located at approximately 1800 metres above sea level and is the deepest freshwater lake in Turkey. The white shores of the lake will have you pinching yourself that you are not in a more exotic location such as the Seychelles. The perfect virgin white beaches of the Lake appear as they do thanks to the high magnesium content in the water and surrounding soil.
