"CORCOVADO" Christ The Redeemer, Corcovado Tip by galy


You haven't been to RIO if you didn't visit the Corcovado. You can go up with a taxi, but I preffer the slow litle red train full of tourist, moaning and gowning up the hill. The forrest around is beautifull, and as the guide said, it was plannted by man. Great job. The top was mostly cloudy, but we could take a glimps of the Maracana stadium between the clouds.
The Corcovado itself is very impressive, but I think the best view of it is from the Sugar Loaf (provided there are no clouds, and you can see it
