Initially, access to the route will be free, though you must obtain a ticket beforehand via their website.

A stroll along Caminito del Rey is a dream that is getting ever closer. On Monday, at a special meeting held at the Tajo de la Encantada power plant, located opposite La Garganta Tourism Complex, Elías Bendodo (President of Malaga Provincial Government) announced the opening of Caminito del Rey for Easter, which will take place between 29 March and 5 April. 

Visitors can access from either end of the path via the control huts at Ardales and Álora respectively. The complete route covers 6 km and the estimated time to finish it is 3 hours, requiring a certain degree of physical effort. Certain obligatory safety measures will also have to be observed, such as wearing a protective helmet to avoid problems related to small rockfalls which may be caused by wildlife.

Making Caminito del Rey a usable route again after 25 years of neglect has required the commitment and collaboration of the Ardales, Álora, Antequera and Valle de Abdalajís town councils, Malaga Provincial Government, Andalusia Regional Government and the Spanish Government, in a project for which 5 million euros have been earmarked plus a further 11 million euros for touristic and sustainable use of the area.

The refurbishment work that began in March 2014 is now 98% complete. Nearly there!
