喜欢旅行和探险的你注意了!被称作“世界最惊险栈道”的西班牙“国王栈道”(King’s Little Pathway)修缮加固完毕,并在今年4月18日重新开放迎客。来自世界各地的游客在时隔14年之后终于又可以再体验“国王栈道”的惊险刺激。

据悉,在1999年至2000年,“国王栈道”上曾发生过游客坠落事故,导致5名游客身亡,而“国王栈道”也被当地政府紧急叫停。随后,西班牙政府斥资400万英镑(约合人民币3454万元)加固“国王栈道”。这一浩大的工程耗时整整14年。到2015年,栈道加固完毕,许多冒险家等不及开放售票便匆匆赶来,想要一睹栈道真容。

据统计,在过去的两年间,“国王栈道”共迎来旅客60万人。而出于安全考虑,当地旅游局每天只允许1100人游览栈道。这个数据表明,栈道几乎每一天都处于“满客”状态。

在两年后的今天,“国王栈道”开始作为旅游景点对外开放售票。据悉,花费10欧元(约合人民币73元)便能体验“国王栈道”。

If you’re a tourist with a spot of daredevil in your DNA then this might appeal to you.

One of Spain’s most popular tourist attractions, El Caminito del Rey Path, slices through the Gaitanes Gorge providing thrillseekers with dramatic views 330ft above Gualdalhorce river.

The walkway was revamped and re-opened in 2015 after five people plunged to their deaths between 1999 and 2000.

The reinforced King’s Little Pathway, as it is known in English, is now more of a beauty spot than a danger zone after a £4million restoration project.

Since re-opening, two years ago, the path has welcomed 600,000 tourists. The attraction, which costs 10 euros, is so popular that it has set a limit of visitors per year at 300,000, with 1,100 admitted per day.

The four-mile network of paths is open from Tuesday to Friday, weather permitting, and it is estimated that it will take the average visitors four to five hours to walk the full route.

Before it was restored and security fences were installed, El Caminito del Rey was an extreme climbing spot, attracting daredevil holidaymakers from around the world thanks to its state of disrepair.

The narrow concrete path, supported by steel stanchions at around 45 degrees into the rock face, had wide gaps and rickety hand rails that posed a massive challenge even for experienced climbers.

Its entrances were officially closed after five people plunged to their deaths in 1999 and 2000, but that didn’t stop adrenaline junkies from continuing to risk their lives on the crumbling path.

For 14 years locals and tourists bypassed security measures and ignored the threat of a £5,000 fine for trespassing.

That was until the Andalusian and Malagan governments launched the ambitious restoration project.

Accessible from the towns of Ardales and Alora (El Chorro), the footpath is more than 100 years old and was built for workers at two nearby hydroelectric plants.

It is now managed in a joint venture by Hermandos Campano and Bobastro 2000.
