The private bus will pick you up in Málaga or by request in a Village of the city, in order to take you to the Caminito del Rey.
Once we have arrived at the Conde de Guadalhorce Dam, the main water reserve in the province of Malaga, our guide will explain you all about the history of the Natural Area of Desfiladero de los Gaitanes.
The construction of a water channel from the reservoirs in the north to El Chorro was carried out together with a path for maintaining the channel. This one is known as El Caminito del Rey (The King’s Little Pathway) because it was first opened by King Alfonso XIII. This path, about 3 kilometres long, has stretched of less than 1-meter-wide and it is hanging about 100 meters high above the Guadalhorce River. It has just been refurbished, and it goes along vertical walls and a footbridge over the gorge on the same waterway.
OBS! The entrance is forbidden for people aged less than 8 years. This path is not recommended for people with reduced mobility, or for people who might suffer from dizziness.
