  • This is quite a journey from Rio and I suggest starting the hike early to avoid the peak heat. The views are breathtaking once you reach the top...so worth it!  more »

  • The hike starts off steep but once you catch your breathe, it's not too difficult. It is a safe path where there's no ledge to fall over while hiking. The view is gorgeous when you get to the top. Tip: Go early to avoid the strong sun even though most of the trail is shaded. The line for pictures can be longer than the actual hike if you don't do early.
  • I went up there in July at 5 o'clock in the morning to see the sun rise. Absolutely worth it! Amazing view! The climb up there is really not that bad. Let me put it this way. We saw a 60 year old couple do the walk. So if you can't, then maybe it's you and not the walk who's in bad shape. ;) No seriously, it can be a little bit challenging when wet, but hey that's nature/adventure. Right?
  • One of the best views you're gonna have, and of course unique pictures!
  • Went up there many times, and amazing view and an amazing time I had with my wife. Would recommend 10 out of 10 times. See it in my Instagram @VINIBOMZ
  • Well worth the hike for some spectacular views and great photo ops.
