  • It very nice view of el Morro from Ipanema and Leblon. Pasted next to the Sheraton Hotel a must-see postcard of Rio.

  • Morro two brothers is close to beach ipanema where you must take a bus to the entrance of the nose to reach this place must get on a motorcycle that charge 5 Reals and leave you at the start of the ascent to the nose where a hike in rise of inos begins 40 minutes which tires and you must carry water but moving forward you are with a few natural vantage points where you appreciate to favela rocina from the heights and arriving to the top you have a panoramic view of rio vista imprrsionante and its beaches

  • Part of the stunning beauty of the river is due to its hills and integration between mountains and sea. The two brothers no exception, framing the view of Leblon. Pros that encourage, Vidigal, right there, is to consider the better view of the river.

  • The place is really nice. We went for a walk a Saturday mornings and we got an amazing view of part of Rio, and also we were able to see some wild animals and some nature just at a walking distance from the city. It is very surprising that we were the only ones there, in such a beautiful park a Sunday morning. It is more than ideal for a run or a walk.
  • To go there just take moto taxi to the start of the trail, ask for: entrada para trilha, and you do not need e guide. Entrance is at the left side of the sport area, and it's marked on the maps. Route itself it's about 40 minutes, not very difficult trail. Good luck and stay far away from the edges of the rocks. To go back you can safely take the moto taxi again.
  • Amazing views of the city and surrounding mountains, track could be a bit slippery and hard to find (you walk up some stairs and behind someone's house before heading into the bush). Best to take a mototaxi to the top of the favela.
  • Best short walk ever. I advise you enjoy a party at Alto Vidigal and then leave the place 1:30 before the sun rise. You get to ask for the beginning of the path but then it's really easy. Avoid the flip flops though, the walk is 30mns going fast
  • I recommend to everyone to watch the sunrise at the top. Be ready for the 40 minutes trekking and enjoy the stunning view of Rio de Janeiro.
