It's a tough climbing for about an hour to reach the top but when you reach it you really feel that it was worth it. Be prepare to wait in line for a while to take pictures because it's a very popular spot.

There are no clear indications / directions and hence it’s better to go in a group or with a guide. I had taken help of a local guide who was very well versed with the location and knew exactly the way up-to the spot..! Please...More

The trail leading up to the start of the hike was probably the hardest part. The start of the hike is very complicated to get to without a guide/if you don't speak Portuguese. We were coming from Copacabana and it took us a subway, then...More

Best is to go there in low season otherwise to have to wait hours to get a photo with the legendary stone. Sport shoes and a lot of water by you please. The mountain is very steepy. The scenery is fantastic it’s worth :)

I took public transport with a friend to do this hike. It was easy to reach. Once at the top, you have to wait for your turn to take a few photos. We took pics of each other. Next, two scam artist photographers, with a...More

No, you can't. It's a medium climb about 30 minutes more or less and it's all with rocks. But it's a really nice place to go!
