Caminito del Rey

This limestone gorge in the south of Spain, through which passes the Guadalhorce river, sits the Desfiladero de los Gaitanes pass that is 700m (2296 feet) high. Famous its very dangerous path, the Caminito del Rey is not what I would call a tourrist attraction. In 2000, the paths was remove because a tourrist died trying to cross it. Just watching that video gave me vertigo. You wouldn't catch me going there...ever! Some people are fearless such as this camera man.

Having watched the videos and seen the pictures of this place i felt i had to visit just to get the real atmosphere... We walked down the river to the top end of the path where the dam is. The sheer scale of the place is breathtaking. Im not very good with heights and it was a real rush just to stand over the waterfall looking up to the path. We stayed with friends near Malaga and hope to return later this year to visit the El Chorro side of the Gorge too. Everybody should go and see this place, it truly is awe inspiring. I just wish i was good with heights.
