"Corvacado and the Christ Statue" Christ The Redeemer, Corcovado Tip by tommylife

  end of the hike!
by tommylife

If you have a chance, hire/find a guide to take you on the hiking trail up! It is about 6 hours round-trip and completely worth it instead of taking the train up.

I have a contact of my guide if you would like!

I felt so accomplished by doing everything on foot. When I took the cable up for the Pao de Azucar (Sugar Loaf) - it was not as great of a feeling.
