We had been on a rainforest hike and our your guide said that we were stopping here on our way back to the hotel. We did not know what to expect, he had told us that the Chinese had tried to grow tea and it...More

This place was very peaceful and not crowded at all. We had spectacular views of Rio, Copacabana, Christ the Redeemer, and of Sugar Loaf. Definitely worth the stop!

Not entirely sure about the origins of this place, but it has great views and is worth a visit on the way to Corcovado.

Take a taxi and drive some 20' (without traffic!) to this view. It's way worth on a sunny day ! Also, instead of returning straight to Rio, you can ride on the "back way" diredctly to Corcovado.

Came here on the Jeep tours. A lot of cyclists come here and the toad is very winding so I wouldn’t walk. Once you get there the view is fantastic and monkeys are there. Some people give them biscuits, but don’t feed them. They are...More

it's a long drive up a winding road to get to these viewpoints. They are amazing! But the experience is probably better if you were biking as we saw a lot of people doing. Avoid if it is raining as the fog will completely cover...More

But the overall experience from the Sugarloaf Mountain is better. The place is very crowded with tourists and especially due to the limited space, this is not as relaxing as it should be. That's the only problem up here. The view itself is fascinating and...More

A long drive up a winding road into the national park, you reach a lookout that has nice views over the city. There is a gazebo, which might be a nice place for a picnic on a non-busy day. This site is very pleasant but...More
