El Caminito del Rey or “The King’s Little Path” is regarded as the most dangerous walkway in the world. This old walkway, now fallen into disrepair, is pinned along the steep walls of a narrow gorge in El Chorro, near Álora in the province of Málaga, Spain.

The walkway was built between 1901 and 1905 to provide workers the means to cross between two hydroelectric power plants at Chorro Falls and Gaitanejo Falls. The walkway is closed to the public, but it has become a major hot spot for thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies all over the world in recent years and it’s not because of it’s majestic mountain top views.

Since it opened about 70 years ago, people from all over the world have come to the Spanish pathway that could easily end your life with just one misstep.

The path is an extremely narrow, man-made walkway that rises 100 meters above the Guadalhorce river.

It was completed in 1905, but inaugurated on 1921 when Spanish King Alfonso XIII crossed it. Since then it’s been called The King’s Pathway.
