In a 50 minute hike going uphill you’ll reach the top and see from an unique angle, Pedra da Gávea, the famous majestic flat rock that is one of the biggest monoliths in the world that ends directly in the ocean at 842m/2762ft high. From this summit, in clear days, we can also see the West coast of Rio, the Barra area with its lagoons and mangroves, also Ipanema and Leblon beaches and Dois Irmãos Peaks Hill.

The tour also includes a visit to another sector of the Tijuca Park, stopping by the Chinese View summit, an amazing belvedere in Rio with views to the Southern side and one of the very few spots in the city where you can get Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf, the beach and the lagoon in the same frame.
