A great view of the jungle but don't expect to see any animals and very few exotic birds. This site is heavily travelled by humans and the animals wisely stay away.

Best to climb up in the middle of the night and watch the sunrise. There is one steep section (maybe class 5-6 or 5-7) that requires some climbing experience in the dark

It's very steep at times, occasionally requiring the use of a chain, but if you're reasonably fit and don't mind some clambering, you'll do fine. I didn't encounter too many people during my weekend hike, but unfortunately, many of the large rock faces are marred with graffiti, and not the artistic kind you find other places in Rio. Go with...
