Incredible view of the city from here. We went around noon (by the time we got up there) and it was packed. Barely room to get around and take a good photo. With the height of the monument, though, getting a photo wasn't difficult. We took the tram up. It was around $65R a person. We wanted to hike, but we weren't sure exactly where the entrance of the trail was, so we played it safe. No regrets, but take some money just in case.
The day we visited it was cloudy, but persistence and/or faith let the clouds part just minutes before we left. An awesome view and monument, that is such an icon of the city. As a low budget traveling family we came to visit the Redeemer on a van tour of some city sights. Our guide helped us navigate the entrance and ticketing etc. There is a shuttle that takes everyone up the half km or so to the top area. We had planned to walk up on the trail from the Botanical Gardens below, but didn’t have the time to take that approach.
Amazing feat of engineering and a beautiful art Deco statue of Christ. Fantastic views over Rio. Make sure you get there for the 8.30am opening otherwise the tourist crowds come in their droves. Also pollution is better earlier on. Souvenir shop and bars were overpriced.
Absolutely the must see venue in Rio. Its the symbol of the city too. Was amazed at how huge the statue is besides the view of the harbour is breathtaking!! I did not take a tourist tour as there are many lower cost options to get there from Copacabana (Lido Square)
It's an amazing creation with human touch which makes Brazil well known around the globe. Upon climbing to the top where it's located tourists (including me) were not discouraged not seeing it clear though coz of the rain and fog. We waited standing for sometime for the weather to be friendly to us but to no avail. I myself was thankful at my age that I've had the chance to see it up lose.
