"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 metre in width, and over a 700-metre 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"Some parts of the walkway have completely collapsed and have been replaced by a beam and a metallic wire on the wall.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 can't quite make up my mind about whether or not making this video was a good idea or not.
If the idea was to show how dangerous it is and discourage people from going there then it is a good video. On the other hand, I can't help but feel that many of the utter nutters who see this video will want to try it for themselves with possible fatal results.
The Camino was built in the 1920s so the King of Spain could see the new water pipes that traveled through the lower gorge, carrying water to the costal city of Malaga. Since the king's single visit eighty years ago, the Camino has fallen into disrepair—huge pieces are missing, and metal supports are nearly rusted through or broken.
