One of the most dangerous trails in the world
• One of the world's most dangerous paths
In mid-January we were able to visit the mountain path, which is considered one of the most dangerous in the world. The trail is located in a place called El Chorro, is in the southern part of Spain, far from major cities such as Granada and Malaga.
The trail was built in the early 20th century, for the passage of workers who were building a dam.
Some time ago the trail was one of the most dangerous because it was almost completely destroyed, and it was impossible to pass without climbing equipment. In addition, the official access to it was closed because of the accidents were fatal.
Yes, the trail it was one of the most dangerous. A few years ago the government decided to update this path and make it a tourist attraction. The project budget for reconstruction amounted to 7 million euros. It was for the money authorities have turned one of the most dangerous trails in one of the most exciting.
Officially, this trail is to open in the spring, the exact date yet. Somewhere wrote that should open in the easter region. But these dates are changed so often, that it is better to score them.
Currently, the trail is in the final stage of reconstruction, so there you can walk calmly. But only when there is no job, t. To. The entrance there is prohibited. We did not wait for the opening, our curiosity could not wait. And we could not just pick up and wait for discovery, t. To. We are constantly on the move and at the time of the official opening, we will be far away from this place.
Therefore, we came to this place, to wait until 5 pm, when the workers go home, and went to look at this "dangerous path". In the post a lot of photos, almost without description, but it is here and it is not necessary.
I also made a video for this trail can be a bit freaky, because of the absence of the stabilizer and acceleration.
At the moment this exclusive material, ie. A. On the Internet almost no pictures from the updated trail. So it is with the video, basically there are some strange photos and videos.
So, let's see, what is the new path.
Near the trail over the mountain circling dozens of vultures, never so seen. It is a pity there is a telephoto lens.
It is already possible to see the beginning of the trail and the gorge through which to pass on the suspension bridge.
The trail goes along the rock walls, at the very beginning of the trail there is a tunnel for trains, through which you can go to the other end of the trail. Although now it is not necessary.
The same suspension bridge across the gorge
From the bridge a very cool view
On the trail there are several memorial plaques to those killed on this path. Most likely, it's climbers, t. To. Used without equipment on this path was not at all.
A place for the coolest selfie. We did not go there to climb, although I wanted to
Next to the new suspension bridge was the old bridge, which for hundreds of years.
At the end of the trail offer views of a green place here among the mountains
When we are free to walk along this path, some climbers gently moving on the same path with the tether. Apparently, they go everywhere with insurance.
I would like to dive?
Visible old piece trails
Put Like this trail
Yes, after the reconstruction of this trail is no longer one of the most dangerous, and generally not dangerous. We'll have to wait again until the time mercilessly destroy the trail and it will again become dangerous.
