The Tijuca Forest and Corcovado Tour in Rio de Janeiro , is a two in one package. It starts with a visit to the Christ the Redeemer Statue, one of the new seven wonders of the planet . The Corcovado (“Hunchback”) mountain, was named for its shape, due to its narrow summit . Building the statue back in 1926 was a big challenge for the engineers. It is the most popular attraction of Corcovado mountain and brings over 300,000 visitors every year. From the peak’s platform, the panoramic view includes downtown Rio, as well as the south area.
After visiting the statue, tour continues to Tijuca Forest . It is a natural boundary that splits the city in two. The park has over 3000 species of plants, and hundreds of bird types. Without the park, the city temperature would probably increase around 2 degrees celsius. This Tour includes a visit to corcovado mountain , the Statue of Christ, the Tijuca Forest, the Chinese View, the Taunay`s Waterfalls and the Visitor Center.
