Quick visit

We've visited with a friend and even with the rain and without the view it was funny. There is a place to park the car near the gazebo.

This is usually part of the National Park tour, but you won't see much on a cloudy or foggy day. It's a long haul getting there too.

Another chance to take some great photos above Rio, pretty easy to get to, and well worth the effort. Not so many tourists but lots of locals there appreciating the majestic viewpoints.

We stopped there to look out over Rio de Janeiro the view was spectacular but nothing could prepare us for what we saw next. In the trees right beneath us was a family of monkeys jumping around and eating jackfruit. An experience will never forget 😍

This Chinese pagoda viewpoint in the Tijuana national park is a great place to rake panoramic pictures of Rio below and the sea beyond. However do choose your timing there as the sun could be directly in front of you or it could be too hazy.

Located in the Tijuca Forest this viewpoint provides the best viewpoint of both Christ the Redeemer as well as Sugarloaf and the city and mountains. Also seen are the apartment blocks of the beaches and plenty of forest.

I´ve beenon this top many times and it offers a spectacular view of Rio. Five times times I have tried to cycle up the hill - but never succeeded. It´s too steep for me. You have to be very fit to manage and have a good bike with easy gears and good brakes.
