When I was there in January it was super hot and way too packed with tourists at the top. There were too many people present to take photos and there is limited shade by the statue. In my opinion, it wasn't worth the 30 minute tram ride up and down.

This is one if the places you must go when visiting Rio. The lines do get long, so the earlier you go, the better. Consider using a travel guide (I loved Rio Maximo). Even if the there are some clouds in the sky, you should still go as you may be able to see to the top of the statue... More

First off, you do not need a huge tour company to go to this. There is a company that runs a shuttle service for $70 Rios a person. We queued up on a Saturday morning and bought tickets at a self service kiosk (you can choose English as an option) - you do not need to wait in line to... More

The beautiful statue of Christ the Redeemer found in the Tijuca National Park is a must-see for every visitor to Rio. It can be seen from quite a distance, but getting up close to it is a real experience. You take a train, a unique experience in itself. Then you can walk and climb or take an elevator. Once you...

One of the must see in Rio. A 30 minute minibus ride from Copacabana brings you up to the hill. You wont feel lonely up there among all the other tourists but the view up here is amazing. The hill is far higher then the Sugarloaf mountain, so you get a god overview over the different city quarters just in... More

You cannot go to Rio without visiting Christ the Redeemer. You get a cable car up and then have to walk up some stairs so it is not strenuous like I thought it might be. It is just breathtaking to see Christ with his hands wide open

People will be laying on the walkway taking photos up- often with companion stanging at their feet with Redeemer behind them. If can arrange your time, suggest go in am, maybe avoid crowds and will have sun behind you. In afternoon , han sun in back of statute and therefore little detail and light .

There are 200 steps or an elevator to take you to the top .We opted for the later!! Unfortunately when we reached the top it was so cloudy we couldn't see the view below. Oh well that's how it goes. We contented ourselves with seeing the amazing stautue up close and we did catch some glimpses of the views from... More
