- The Gaitanes Gorge contains the unique "King's Walkway", located in El Chorro Natural Park which provides the perfect setting for a exciting walkable experience with unbelievable landscapes, encompassing a rocky plateau 1200 m above sea level.
- The estimated time needed to go across the whole route is 3-4 hours.
- The total length of the route is 7.7 km, divided into 4.8 km long access ways and 2.9 km the way called as the real King's Walkway. The most famous part of the trail, is the 2.9 km King's Walkway, from the entrance control to the exit control point, which comprises 1.5 km long boardwalks (located at the gorges), and 1.4 km long paths or forest walkways between the two gorges. Usually the group takes a tunnel at the entrance, saving 1 km walking through the forest, so the total lengh of this excursion is 6.7 km.
- Caminito del Rey was re-opened to the public on the 28th of March 2015 and it is part of a spectacular natural beauty spot in Malaga countryside.
- The boardwalks and a hanging footbridge that stands at 105 meters height, as well as steep walls, make many visitors feel inevitably dizzy, but in general, people get used quickly and enjoy the feeling from the beginning.
- There is no risk at all, but you must be aware of the strong impression this place might make on you. The path is breathtaking because of the heights and its very narrow parts. This is why it is so attractive.
- Discover this natural treasure with lots of histories told by the expert guide and have the chance to walk the walkway suspended 100 metres high!
