Once up there, travelers can contemplate of of the best views of Rio. That includes places like Ipanema, Arpoador, São Conrado and a bit of Tijuca Forest. The trail is accessed via the Favela of Vidigal. On the way up, and also after the hike ends, the guide will make a few stops along the slum, for photos for showing around. This trip is a great oportunity for active travelers who also like to enjoy and learn about social and cultural aspects of our city and people.
