It was an amazing trip up the mountain in the cable car. The views of Rio from the top are incredible. This is really worthwhile to do while in Rio.

Recommend going about 1hr before sunset, to beat the rush and obtain a good spot to sit, relax and enjoy the amazing views as the sun sets.

We queued for approx 15mins, but the line does move very quickly, so it's not long before your on the 1st cable car

The journey up to the top, is split into 2 separate cable car sections. For those scared of heights, like myself, each trip is fairly quick and smooth, but it does make for a nail biting experience....The amazing views from the top, make it all worth while...

Highly Recommend

Go on a clear day and the views will be amazing.

The cable car up and down was fun. For the best views stand on the left side of the car as if you are facing the mountain.

It gets windy up there so watch you hat and maybe take a wind breaker or jacket.

Enjoy.

Breathtaking view of Copacabana, Botafogo, Flamengo and Nitteroi bridge. Take a helicopter ride, it is expensive but worthy!

What can I say apart from amazing and breathtaking....

I love this place and I want to build a house on it and live there.
