The lookout from here is not comparable to what we saw from the Christ statue, especially with the feeling of being in the jungle. The place is perfect to do canyoning, but there was no option, we came here by jeep. The hike was nice,...More

What an amazing place. Worth the trip 100%. Our guide spoke great English and has loads of facts about the forest. One being that you’ll get 4 years in prison if cutting down a tree from the forest! Worth the journey 100%

Such a wonderful experience to have a National Park bang in the middle of the city! We saw the water fall and the Chinese View , but more than anything driving through the park was truly lovely!

Went to the park for a couple of hours on a Monday morning and we saw monkeys. The waterfall was amazing too. Definitely worth checking out if you have time in Rio.

After visiting the hang gliding platform close to the parking lot, it was a pretty easy trek to the top. The views from the top were indeed BONITA, and we saw monkeys and wildlife along the way. Warning!!!! DO NOT BRING MONEY OR ANY VALUABLES...More

Yes, but not very often. It's better to take a private car.

I don't think it's necessary to get a guide. If you're a runner, once you get in the park, follow the signs and see where the running lanes are. There are a few, and some go by beautiful waterfalls. Enjoy it.
