  • At the beginning of the Trek is the need to get a ride on bikes. The price is 5 r. Itself is not challenging trek and is relatively short compared with the path of the Corcovado Hill. At the top is really beautiful views and most importantly, it is possible that you're there all alone! Morro Dois Irmaos, I consider it the most beautiful place we visited in Rio!

  • From favela Vidigal (quiet and non-hazardous) take a motorcycle taxi and lead to the entrance of the trail to Morro dos Irmaos. in 50-60 minute climb, not hard but still challenging in some places, you will enjoy a fantastic view of Ipanema, Copacabana, Pao de Azuca, Christ, Lagoa. Unparalleled picture. Be careful along the way where you left the favela Rochina at your feet because there are no guards and the sheer drop could be fatal. This place is a must.

  • Motorcycle taxi, icebar (i dun remember the specific name), stiff hill and magnificent view, everything was unique and memorable. I still have a vivid feeling about this mountain. All the people i met up were very friendly also. One thing i wanna tell travelers is to be careful motorcycle riding places.
  • O wasn't at the hill, i was in Ipanema and was watching morro dois irmãos and would like to share my pic of this view of the mountain.
  • What a wonderful sight over the Corcovado, the Lagoa and Ipanema
  • Beautiful view. Short and easy hike. If you take a moto taxi to the top of the favela, it can be done in 30'.
  • This quintessential hike in Zona Sul is a moderate hike that offers everything from favelas to beautiful landscape views, not to mention a beautiful deck with cold drinks overlooking the city of Rio when the hike is finished. The Dois Irmãos climb adventure starts at the base of Vidigal, a favela located 10 minutes from Ipanema on the ocean. From the base of Vidigal, you take a convy (a VW bus) or motorcycle taxi to the trailhead located in "Alto Vidiga," which means "the top of Vidigal." I recommend the moto táxi! Once on foot, you will make your way to the trailhead after a short walk through a residential area of the favela. The Dois Irmãos Hike is an all uphill affair. The trail slides past the biggest favela in Rio, Rocinha, offering spectacular views of both the favela and their wealthier neighbors. After 45 minutes to an hour, you arrive to the summit with breathtaking views of the city and surrounding region. You descend the same trail you went up. When you return to the trailhead and Alto Vidigal, don't miss a chance to enjoy cold refreshments from deck at Bar de Lage with panoramic views Of Ipanema and Zona Sul. Hike: Moderate Hiking Time: 1.5 hours round trip Tour Time: 2.5 - 4 hours (dependant on our stop to the panoramic deck)
