We visited around 9am on a Sunday in low season and purchased tickets for the tram on site. Even in low season we waited 30 minutes to board the tram for the steep climb but it was definitely worth it. The sight of Christ the Redeemer was so awe-inspiring I was not prepared for it. The views are also magnificent, much better than views from Sugar Loaf. There is a small chapel on site, while we were there it was being used for Baptisms. Once on the tram, it is very accessible with elevators and escalators provided for the rest of the climb. Tip- get tickets in advance for busy season.

It was amazing and the ride up was so beautiful! although arriving at the top was a bit disappointing due to the number of people. otherwise, a great experience- everyone must go if they are in Rio

Great attraction! You can see the statue from all over the city, but the view from the very top is unbeatable! The cost ( 75 reals ) includes the team up the mountain and the entrance to the statue. Going early/mid morning is best because clouds tend to block the view towards the late afternoon. Shops and snack bar are open at the top.

this view is breathtaking, I recommend taking the Tram to go there in order to slowly discover the forest. Once on top you will have a 360 breathtaking on Rio: lagoa, ipanema, copacabana, maracana, niteroi,...

The Christ the Redeemer statue is worth the visit! You get fantastic views of Rio as well as clouds rolling down the mountains. Ample restrooms and food makes the trip easier. There is also a chapel at the base of the statue worth a visit and a moment of prayer. Cloud cover is hard to predict so plan a visit same day if you can.
