Caminito del Rey (The King’s Pathway)

Caminito del Rey (The King’s Pathway)

A bridge over the Sierra Huma River, hanging from vertical rocks from the Desfiladero de los Gaitanes (Gaitanes Gorge) Ardales, Álora y Antequera, at provincia de Málaga, a pathway that seems to come from a dream and not from the common need to join two power plans by the shortest way possible. A special engineering that turned fishermen, who were used to hanging from the rigging of their ships, into inland construction workers.

It is a pedestrian walkway of more than 3 kilometers (in addition to 4.8 kilometers of access), attached to the rock inside a canyon, with sections of a width of just 1 meter, hanging up to 105 meters high above the river, in almost vertical amazing walls.

It is situated along the steep walls of a narrow gorge in El Chorro, near Ardales in Málaga province, just one hour away by car from almos any part of the coast

The walkway had fallen into disrepair and was partially closed for over a decade. After 4 years of repairs and renovations, the walkway re-opened and it is ready for one of the most interesting wlaks arround.

It has been known in the past as the “world’s most dangerous walkway”. Now it’s totally safe for an organized day trip!
