Well, this is famous as El Caminito del Rey (the King's little pathway) and was a very popular challenge for adventurers lovers, because until five people lost their lives while taking on the path between 1999 and 2000. Therefore, after a long gap of 14 years after it was closed due to safety fears, the renowned walkway - recognized as the most dangerous in the world is set to reopen to the public.

The beautiful narrow gorge in the province of Malaga, El Caminito del Rey is a risky walkway that rises over 100 metres (328ft) above the river below. Although after an extensive €2.8 million restoration it was in recent times reopened to the press and will officially open to the public on March 28. Well, a hard joint effort by the regional government of Andalusia and the local government of Malaga, who shared the costs of the renovation, the project has retained much of the walkway’s original features.

The picturesque pathway has also been reinforced with an additional security fence and despite offering up some dizzying views is entirely safe. The walkers can wear hard hats as they clutch the newly installed handrails on their way along the trail. A majestic cave is also incorporated into the path, and walkers can be seen entering and exiting it via a set of stairs. So far, the walk will be free to enjoy for the first six months before a small fee is brought in thereafter. Well, King Felipe is due to be among the first guests to take a walk along the renovated path.
