Why Visit El Chorro?

El Chorro is located in an area of stunning natural beauty. El Chorro, is a superb place for lovers of nature, hiking, horse riding, mountain biking and climbing. The dramatic gorge, which is home to the famous Kings Walk (known in Spanish as El Caminito Del Rey) is stunning.

What is the Kings Walk?

The 'Caminito Del Rey' is a old pathway built high up on the walls of the gorge originally for workers at the Hydro Electric plant sites within the gorge.

Completed in 1905 the walkway was walked by King Alfonso XIII in 1921 to open a new dam and this is where it takes its name from.

In later years the walk has fallen into a state of bad disrepair, and the unfortunate deaths of climbers / walkers in 1999 and 2000 lead to the government closing off both ends of the walk to the public.

It is now a via ferrata used by climbers and guided parties. The height and state of disrepair has lead to it becoming known as the 'Worlds Most Dangerous Path'.

The Tourist Boards are now gathering funding for the works required to re open the Kings Walk as a major tourist attraction in the near future.

El Chorros Lakes

The Lakes, formed by dams, on the road from El Chorro to Ardales are a great place to cool off in the hot summer months where visitors can swim, fish, pedalo, kayak and generally chill out on the banks. In the winter months the lakes are popular with hikers and bikers.

The El Chorro area is absolutely stunning. I am always amazed just how few people are there - for me it beats the Peak District with no crowds. Great for a swim, kayak or pedalo on the lake in summer, or a gentle hike to the dams. The walk from the village up to the Kings Bridge is well worth the effort. Theres a nice little restaurant / bar in the village opposite the station.
