The most dangerous path awaits for the adrenaline lovers again.
It’s about “Caminito del Rey”, in Spain, the most dangerous path in the world, which can be used by trekkers again by the end of March.
The path’s construction began in 1901 and ended in 1905. Its initial purpose was to facilitate access for the laborers who worked in two hydroelectric powerhouses of energy production and the transport of equipment, as well.
In 1921, King Alfonso XIIII, crossed the path for the inauguration of a nearby dam, and it became known by the name “the king’s path”.
With a length of approximately 3 kilometres, 100 metres high and not wider than one metre, the path literally takes your breath away!!!!!
Caminito del Rey was shot down in 2001, as the lack of maintenance led to the collapse of several of its sections
and as a result five people lost their lives. But after a reinstatement of 2,5 millions euros worth by the local government in Andalusia and the city of Malaga, the security measures were bolstered and now it is ready again to be host to the bold trekkers.
