World's Scariest Walkway: Caminito del Rey


El Caminito del Rey is a walkway, pinned along the steep walls of a narrow gorge in El Chorro, near Álora in the province of Málaga, Spain. The name is often shortened to Camino del Rey. The walkway had fallen into disrepair and was partially closed for over a decade. After extensive repairs and renovations in 2011-15, the walkway will re-open on 29 March 2015.

At more than 3km long, clinging to the cliff face 100m above the river in the Gorge of Gaitanes, and never more than a metre wide, the King’s little pathway was closed in 2001 after five people fell to their deaths. But the Andalusian local government and the city of Malaga have financed a €2.5m (£1.7m) renovation, repairing and reinforcing the path and putting extra safety measures in place.

The walkway was built to provide workers at the hydroelectric power plants at Chorro Falls and Gaitanejo Falls with means to cross between them, to provide for transport of materials, and to facilitate inspection and maintenance of the channel. Construction began in 1901 and was finished in 1905.
