Caminito del Rey, a trail now known worldwide for its beautiful views and past danger, has caught the attention of the giant Google which has digitized the path for its popular application Google Street View.
The application of Google allows the user a panoramic view and horizontal movement along a path of preset images, something that has already been used in such sights as the pyramids of Egypt or the world’s major cities and which allow the curious observer the feeling of somehow visiting the place.
Without doubt this is good news for those among the lucky ones who have already visited and want to remember the path or those who are expecting their turn to do so.
Caminito del Rey is a popular tourist attraction which has recently been refurbished and for which you have to book the visit from their website (http://www.caminitodelrey.info), although it has been very successful and currently there is no availability for the tour.
The tour takes between 4 and 5 hours depending on the pace, it is a linear path so when you reach the end, you have to take a bus to take you to the starting point or walk back which will take you in total 6 hours return trip.
If you choose to start from Alora keep in mind that a large part of the route is uphill, however if you decide to start in Ardales it is downhill, so it will take less time to walk it.
If you still haven´t got your ticket do not worry, the Caminito del Rey is located in a beautiful natural area which you can enjoy without reservation and free of charge and enjoy the cuisine of the villages.
