I was just blown away by the majestic views and humbling feel you get once you make it to stand next to the Cristo Redentor. I am not a very religious person, however this particular site has so much history and the statue is amazing to stare at.

Good advice, get up early and be there at 8:00 or 8:10 we did that and we were delighted. There was only a small queue, we bought our tickets and got on the first train. On the top there weren't many people so we took some great pictures. But it was getting busy verily fast. On the way back around 9:00 the queue for the train was massive! Also on the train sit on the left side, (2 sits rather than on the right side with 3 sits) the views are better.

The view was amazing better than from the sugar loaf. its totally worth it even if you have to q

Wonderful views from here.
Best to go early (book the corcovado in advance) to avoid the crowds.
Remember to know the name of the station at which you get Corcovado as our taxi driver dropped us off at the main Tourist Office about 10 min bus ride away!

Make sure to book your tickets online if possible, to save time looking for a Tourist Info Bureau. Also carry your passport/ photocopy as they require ID for bookings.

Best to go first thing in the morning by bus at about 8am as you'll be the first one to get photos with no one in your way and you'll have the sun in the right spot.
Once the first tram gets up there, it gets pretty crowded from then on.
