Owner description: A towering statue of Jesus Christ (Cristo Redentor) perched atop the Corcovado Mountain is accessible by a steep train or winding car ride followed by numerous staircases, but it’s worth the trek to see this 98-foot statue up close and the whole of Rio below.

One of the most beautiful places in the world! Take a cab for about $15, that it would take you right at the entrance..than take the van to the ticket counter. Easy access

Impossible to visit Rio without visiting Corcovado. Just go there...by taxi, don't drive. Amazing views that you will never forget. Snacks available at the top. Don't forget an umbrella if the weather is bad.

We went on a super busy day...lots of shoving to get "the" photo. But really great experience none the less. We did not take the train....we took a van up, great views during the drive (try to get the front seat if you dare). Amazing views from atop, great photo opps. Dont need to spend too much time there.

We had gone up with the clog train in a previous trip here. The hotel recommended using the minivans located next to the hotel. The price included the transportation to and back and the entry fee. The buses were clean and the drivers very good. We were lucky and got the front seat each way. You get a scenic visit... More

This is one of the world's best known sites which should not be missed. It's quite an experience going up the hill to Corcovado experiencing the green vegitation but it's even a greater experience once you are on top of the hill next to the statute of Christ the King. The views are simply spectacular and breathtaking.Not to be missed.

This icon is something to check off of your bucket list. The views of Rio are amazing and the statue itself is spectacular. For those who want souvenirs, there are plenty on site. Check out the very small little chapel at the top.

No trip to Rio is complete without a trip up this mountain. Great views... a must do! The train ride is nice and simple - fighting your way for a good seat might be a challenge - but worth it! (facing up hill - sit on the right going... and the same side on the way back for the best... More

Corcovado was not something on our traveler's wish list. However, since we were in Rio, it was something to do. Glad we went. It was awesome.
