Sugarloaf Mountain, Rio De Janeiro Reviews
Sugarloaf mountain is a couplet of mountains within the periphery of Rio. The beauty is that there are cable cars to travel to these mountain tops. That journey itself is enjoyable as it gives a wonderful view of whole Rio from the top. The evening sunset scene and the lighted beaches are pretty awesome sights. The illuminated statue of Christ The Redeemer also looks very beautiful from a distance. If you happen to be in Rio, do not miss out this place.
Must do if you visiting Rio. Going all the way to the top in cable cars gives some fantastic views of the city. It is very popular and obviously gets very crowded. It can eat up more than half of your day so make sure you plan ahead. The best time is to go late afternoon so you catch the sunset and view of the city and mountains in lights. Christ the redeemer also shines beautifully at night with a bright light on the statue. There is parking nearby but it is expensive. If you can use public transport, do it. Take a good camera because there will be lots to shoot!
I've been to the summit 3 times. First time I went up the shortest mountain by foot (which I recommend btw) and then took the cable car to reach the peak of the Sugarloaf. On the way to the first mountain I met many of these cute, little monkeys with white hair on their head. So adorable :). The view from the Sugarloaf will not disappoint you.
Views were great, lines and tons of people were not.. sometimes you have to wait hours but its a must. Id hike it if i were you. More memorable. Take the cable cars down. People are rude but worth it. Trash everywhere, i wish people were more educated.
Amazing!! A must visit. Don't hesitate to pay for the ticket to go up here, probably one of the best views you could have of Rio. You could sit for a drink, too. There are, also, some shops here.
