Entrance to the Caminito del Rey in Pictures

The Caminito del Rey is now regarded as one of the most dangerous mountain walks out there due to the amount of deaths that occur each year within its narrow defiles. It has been closed to the public but even that and the prospect of a heavy fine doesn’t stop the annual influx of visitors.

The walkway, which was built to transport materials for building the hydro stations, is now in utter ruin sitting 350ft above the river and certain death. It is a very attractive proposition to climbers, adrenaline junkies and explorers alike.

Here’s the first section in pictures.
