Now that you've solve the puzzle(I assume) have a little thrill...

The entrances for this trail are closed but not policed. It was built in the 1920's for hydro workers. There is no rail but there is a chain to hold onto but it doesn't hold much weight and several people have fallen to their deaths. This is an amazing walk! This should have you on the edge of your seat possibly feeling slightly dizzy. It's 6 minutes long and should be watched till the very end.

To intensify the experience, click on the full screen button (middle button that looks like four arrows on the lower right hand side of the screen when the player comes up). It's enough to make you nauseous especially when you consider that it was filmed by someone who made the hike carrying a video camera while he did it.


The scariest path in the world?

Good one, NTB.

Already seen the stupid mountain path one. I agree it could make anyone suffer from vertigo. For idiots only. You forgot to mention it is being repaired and updated for a cost of 8 million euros. Why? What a waste of public money when that country is already in strife.

Fixed up with ropes all the way and If I had the money I would do it..
Tourist trap, they will probably add a lodge at the top. A fancy restaurant.
All costing folks an arm and a leg..
Might pay off in the long run..
Couldn't be for a honeymoon she would to tired when she got to the top to...... Well you know...

Not sure about that, NTB. It is as DB said a connecting track for workers to use at between two hydro schemes. If there was a hotel going to be built it would have been built by now, and it's only going to appeal to a specific group, plus those thinking of suicide. Given Spain's current financial situation I think the tax payers in the rest of Europe who are having to bail these people out would be none to thrilled to see some of it going towards this project,though I gather the project may have already been started. There is already accommodation in El Chorro which is right near it, and I know it's a popular place for climbers, some mountain bikers and hikers, but it's not on the regular tourist route.

Don't worry,DB and Buzzer, the fish will clear up the pieces.
