  • At the time I have visited the website of "El Caminito" it was still not updated and the route was promoted all over the web as "the most dangerous walk" etc. I have been watching some old-dated YouTu...  more »
  • May be because I was expecting something more spectacular. First ten minutes it's interesting, but later it's still the same landscape.

  • If it is based on preliminary Board of Malaga, book well in advance the ticket on the site of Caminito comprising the shuttle service: so you can leave and return from Maria Zambrano train station with direction El Chorro (all at very cheap cost). In those circumstances, the shuttle will deposit at the mouth of a very short tunnel that follow the start of closer to Caminito: a wonderful walk of several kilometers surrounded by pines and bucoloci glimpses (there are no rough edges, but wouldn't recommend face it with flip flops, beach slippers or heels;)). At the entrance of Caminito real it is divided between organized groups are not e-tickets and wore a helmet with ear bud holders Ordinance and listen carefully to directions of operators-you enter the trail. We immediately see the immense work to reopen it to the public in 2015: passerelle large (as much as nature allows), steps (careful if you have more than 42;) shoe) and solid Safety cables towards the Gorges for the entire route. For the rest I can only wish to live it and enjoy it: I don't know how many words can actually describe it (I was lucky enough to see a rainbow during the final bridge), but I recommend every so often to raise his eyes to Heaven (being careful where you put your feet and the rock outcroppings of course) to catch some flying eagle. If it were possible, a nighttime would mystical notes. Good Caminito:)

  • Wonderful experience in unique environment. We were risking a bit since we could not purchase tickets online, however arriving in the morning at 8:20 we actually managed to get into the park 😁 It was well worth coming to the ticket office twice and making those additional 200km! Would be great however if some more tickets could be sold on site as not everybody can plan the travel so far in the future.
  • Amazing! Breathtaking views on this incredible walk. Extremely precarious (but perfectly safe!) and a thoroughly entertaining afternoon out. Fascinating history, and plenty of wildlife to see in the canyon
  • Wonderful hike! Arrive to the North entrance at least 30 minutes early because you will have to walk to the starting point of the trail. There is parking next to the road and payed parking behind the small tourist office. Bring a lot of water and enjoy your hike :)
  • Fantastic place to see beautiful views. Do need to be able to walk for long distance at least 2hr plus. In the summer first available time would be best as it gets extremely hot as the day goes on. Need to book in advance. Rug sack best suited and plenty of water.
  • One of the best paths to walk in the nature... Very well organized and maintenance is very good... The best place to take good photos and its not dangerous after the reconstruction.
