El Caminito del Rey or The King's little pathway is a walkway pinned along the steep walls of a narrow gorge in El Chorro, near Álora in Málaga, Spain.
The construction of Caminito del Rey began in 1901 and the main purpose was to provide the workers at the hydroelectric power plants at Chorro Falls and Gaitanejo with a walkway to cross between falls.
The walkway was ready in 1905.
In 1921 King Alfonso XIII crossed the walkway for the inauguration of the dam Conde del Guadalhorce and it became known by its present name.
Now the walkway is in very dangerous state - it has handrail, some parts have completely collapsed.
It is one meter (3 feet and 3 inches) in width, and is over 300 meters (984 feet) above the river.
After several torrists have died in the accidents, the local government closed the walkway.
But it couldn't stop a lot of crazy tourists. And there are still a lot of people trying to cross the walkway every day.

lol...I'm too fond of my skin in one piece! Pretty enough scenery, but I'd rather see pretty places that are a little safer...
