Atop this mountain is the famous statue of Cristo Redentor. The train ride to the peak is half the thrill as you pass through a green forest. The 20-minute train ride was not bad. There are a few stops where vendors try to sell water and soda. Buy the bottled water here, so much cheaper than those sold at the... More

Taking a walk in the national park is an excellent experience. Lots of shades and lots of nice tropical greens. A must go for travelers. Lots of birds and fresh air.

I guess this is the best spot from where getting a 360 degrees view all over Rio. You shouldn't miss it. There are several options to go up, I went by taxi (and the driver waited for me to go back), but you could also use one of the vans at the hill's feet. Once you get almost to the... More

If you go to Rio...you have to visit the Christ the Redeemer. Do not take a taxi to the top. Insist on taking the train. The lush forest and views are well worth the trip. When you get to the top, the view of Rio below will take your breath away!

Great view of the city, especially during sunset. But transportation on the way back can be time consuming though due to high volume of visitors. Superb view nonetheless!

The transportation on popular dates maybe a problem because you have to move by trucks around 30 mins to be there, the view is amazing.

This is the train to get to Cristo. Make you buy your ticket online first thru http://www.corcovado.com.br/ingles/info.html You walk right on the train when you pre-but it.

There are just two ways to arrive at Christ the Redeemer. Either by minibus or by the Corcovado cog train.The cog train is by far the best experience! The train takes you up through the mountains and last around 15 - 20 minutes. The views from this little train are stunning (although the weather was foggy on our particular visit).... More

Good clear day, could see for miles. Book online and get a taxi to it. Much cheaper than paying for a tour.
