Walkway in Spain reopens - level 2
Caminito del Rey, which is also known as the world’s deadliest walkway, is a narrow walkway in Spain. King Alfonso XIII opened it in 1921, and it is located on the steep walls of a gorge.
It was closed in 2001 after five people fell to their deaths in less than two years. The walkway underwent years of repair work, and people reopened it on March 28th.
The three-foot-wide (0.9 metres) pathway, which hangs over 100 feet (30 metres) above the ground, is much safer now. This, however, might not be good news for risk-takers.
Difficult words: steep (rising/falling sharply), gorge (a narrow valley between two mountains), undergo-underwent-undergone (to go through a change).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
