This is a very nice trail, not very hard to go but please use appropriate shoes and bring water with you. The start point of this trail is already high on a residencial area. A lower and small car may have some difficulties to reach....More

2 to 3 hours from Rio de Janeiro downtown. 01 subway, 2 buses and 40 minutes walk that are worth it! Beautiful landscapes and, in the end, a spectacular photo up the rock!

It took me and my wife about 33 min to complete the hike. We took the Church stairs and up. There are signs. Parking can be a bit complicated unless you get there before 7:30am. This hike became very popular, most likely there will be...More

My siblings and I went with a tour guide here to take photos on the rock. It proved a wonderful experience with wonderful views too! However the only thing is that the hike up to the rock is horrendous, but unfortunately unavoidable. However despite this...More

Fabulous views up there. The climb is quite steep and I'd advise to only do this in winter. Drive to the end of Guaratiba (end of Av Burle Marx) where the bus stops. You'll see some guys with high viz vests that can guide you...More

It is difficult to get to. I suggest hiring a guide. The path up is relatively easy. Walking through the barrio, though, is the toughest part. It is extremely steep in the barrio. Go there early. I reached there at 8am and I only waited...More

This is quite a journey from Rio and I suggest starting the hike early to avoid the peak heat. The views are breathtaking once you reach the top...so worth it!

If you want that social media shot go here. Really cheap fun. Only downside is the hour odd long wait in line for your chance. But since it's such a good spot and the people are friendly I'll keep my rating a 5. What also...More
