The Kings Walk - Caminito del Rey

Operator

La Diputación Provincial de Málaga

Description

Famously previously known as the 'worlds most dangerous walk' and the Caminito del Rey, the Kings Walk has now been transformed from the old dangerous decaying pathway into a modern breath taking visitor attraction.

A 3km pathway clinging to the steep walls of the Desfiladero de los Gaitanes gorge with epic views.

The Kings Walk is located at the small village of El Chorro in Andalucia near Alora and Ardales. It is about 60-90 minutes drive from Malaga, Fuengirola, Marbella, etc.

The Gaitanes Gorge is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The gorge, which in places is just 10 meters wide and 700 meters deep, was carved by the river Guadalhorce.

Special Notes

This is a linear route - One Way! You start from beside the Kiosk restaurant by the lakes (signposted North entrance) and walk 2.7km to the start point and ticket desk.

A shuttle bus takes visitors from the south exit in El Chorro village by the railway station to the start point at the North entrance.

How long will it take?

The total route length is 7.7km, which is split into 4.8 of walks to the access points and 2.9km in the 'real' Kings Walk up on the wooden board walk.

The main 2.9km route, is 1.5 km on the boardwalks, and 1.4 km of paths and forest walkways.

The rough average time for the full length of the route (the two boardwalks, and the paths and the forest walkways that serve from entrance to exit) is between four and five hours.

Be aware of both the distance and the fact there are some steep slopes and many steps to be covered to access the boardwalks.

Booking Notes

Pre booking is highly recommended from the official website (see link on this page) as capacity on the path is limited to 50 visitors every half an hour at the North access point.
