This peak located at the mouth of the Guanabara Bay is another popular destination in the city of Rio. The peak is largely conical in shape and goes by the popular name of Sugarloaf Mountain. The name is said to have originated in the 16th century when sugarcane cultivation was a booming industry in the country.

The shape of the mountain is said to closely resemble a slab of loaf sugar, hence the name. The interesting point about this peak is that it is more commonly associated to a vantage point more than a national historical location like the nearby Corcovado peak. It is certainly a good idea to take advantage of the Birdseye view from the top. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Rio De Janeiro Itinerary 5 Days.

  • What a wonderful experience to see Rio in all directions! Buy your tickets online before you visit. And don't let the prospect of cues put you of. The cars take 65 people per ride. Pack water!!

  • Love it. Remembering James Bond villain Jaws chewing on the cable and there is monkeys on the peak to see. What a view. See aircraft landing at the Santos Dumont Airport - from above! Take a helicopter tour around the place and enjoy the scenic views. Iconic piece of Rio. Even though it is a cable car it felt very safe and smooth. No hesitation in suggesting that you give it a go to anyone who has issues with heights, if you're worried just stay in the middle of the car and it will feel like you are in a big room

  • Wonderful spot - great views even when it was a little overcast. There are two cable car trips up this mountain FYI: A James Bond Scene was once filmed here in the 70s (Moonraker). A must see when in Rio. Felt quite safe at all times.

  • Pricing: 99BRL if you buy online or at ticket machines. Otherwise 110BRL. But definitely worth a visit! Great views of Rio.

  • Amazing view, especially during the sunset. So beautiful and exciting. Loved it and will totally do it again. Totally worth the money for me.
