This is the first hill up on the way to Rio's famous Sugar Loaf. It offers it's own marvelous view from the top (215 meters) but its base is also a good place for hiking.

When we take the cable car to sugar loaf mountain, we first stop on the first mountain, Morro da Urca. This is where the restaurants are. Higher, you will only find drinks and finger food. Views are already great from there.

The cable car stops here and it is definitely worth getting out and enjoying the views and a walk in the forest.

Climb was tiring because of the heat 90degrees F and the oppressive humidity. Views on top were incredible. We then took the cable car to top of sugar loaf and back all the way down. Definetly doable if you are reasonably fit or young.

This beach is less crowded and quieter than Copacabana. I won't miss this beach while in Rio De Janeiro. It is a beautiful beach.

Should spend some time on the way to sugarloaf. Refreshments and stunning views as well as the green trail should not be missed!

Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born.
With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical
buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living
proof that the old and the new can live together
harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where
all major companies house their offices. However, the
region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like
