Nice Little Tourist Hiking Video

25 April 2005

Was sent this link from a friend:


El Caminito del Rey (The King's pathway) is a walkway, now fallen into disrepair, pinned along the steep walls of a narrow gorge in El Chorro, near Álora in Málaga , Spain.
The walkway has gone many years without maintenance, and is in a highly deteriorated and dangerous state. It is only one meter in width, and over a 700-meter fall, and over time it has also lost its handrail. Some parts of the walkway have completely collapsed and have been replaced by a beam and a metallic wire on the wall. Many people have lost their lives on the walkway in recent years.
After four people died in two accidents in 1999 and 2000, the local government closed the entrances.
However, adventurous tourists still find their way into the walkway.
I sh*t my pants watching it.:eek:
oh... heeellll no! Not even for 72 virgins.

I would do it if you could clip into the safety line while traversing the open gaps, but it does not look like that is possible. So, hell no wins.
