You may have heard of it: El Caminito del Rey or the King’s Little Path. This path used to be known mainly among mountaineers and daredevils. Since 2015 it has become accessible to people without fear of heights.
The Caminito del Rey takes you on a simple, yet spectacular three-kilometer-long high walkway. The path seems to be attached to a vertical rock wall with flowing water far below you and another vertical rock wall next to you.
the Caminito del Rey walkway is suspended 100 meters above the Guadalhorce River, which meanders serenely between the steep canyons of the ravine. The views are breathtaking.
You must buy tickets in advance (s. below text). In our opinion, the difficulty of this walk is largely exaggerated on the website of Caminito del Rey. Everyone with a normal condition and no fear of heights can do it. In addition to the walkway, there are sandy paths and a now-and-then staircase. There is little height difference. It is not a circular walk. At the end of the walk, a bus can bring you back to the starting point again.
Children under eight are not allowed for safety reasons.
The walk will take you at least 2-2,5 hours. The last part of the walk doesn’t offer many shelters. If you go in summer, don’t forget to bring sun lotion and a cap and preferably buy a ticket for the morning or the later afternoon (after 5 pm).
