World's Scariest Path

Here's a video that will make you hold your breath for a couple of seconds.

It's a walk along El Camino Del Rey in the El Chorro region of Spain. The walkway was built over 80 years ago, and is in serious disrepair. That's not a good thing considering it's along the edge of a gorge, where one slip of your foot would send you hurtling down the rocks to your death -- and there's no guardrail. That doesn't stop some ballsy hikers from walking the path, both for the scenery and the adventure.

I can't embed the video, but you can see it here.
