The sugar loaf is definitely a must see in Rio. You take a cable car to get to the top of the sugar loaf in two stops. You can also rent a helicopter at the first stop and get a sky-city-tour. The view is great, you'll have a panoramic view of Rio and there is also a small forest you can walk through and if you're lucky, you'll get to see some animals such as big lizards and tropical birds. It may be a bit costly, but it is definitely worth it, since it's not as much crowded as the Christ statue and hence, you can enjoy the view and take amazing photos!

We enjoyed the tram ride and the fanstastic views of the beaches and city from Sugar Loaf. The views are back the opposite way from a visit to Christ the Redeemer. It was 105 degrees the day we visited and the tram ride was HOT, but the site was beautiful and well worth the visit.

Great views over Rio and the coast if you go on a good day. There are two cable car journeys which are fast and smooth albeit unnerving for those who find heights a challenge. It costs R$52 return.

The view is amazing. The ticket is expensive, but it is totally worth it, especially in good weather. Take your camera and enjoy it.

The locals named the mountain Sugarloaf because it is shaped like the metal sugarloaf drum used in the processing of sugarcane. Sugarloaf Mountain is definitely a site worth visiting on any trip to Rio. You have to take 2 different cable cars to reach the top. The views from the cable car rides as well as from on top of the mountain are spectacular. At the top, you can find a gift shop, food and restrooms.
