Sugarloaf Mountain stands in the bay 1300 feet (395 meters) over the sea and guards the entrance to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Each and every newbie visitor to Rio should really make the excursion up to the top of this unique mountain. The peak is achieved via a two stage cable car. The passenger will experience sweeping vistas of Ipanema and Copacabana Beaches in the west, and also greater Rio de Janeiro towards the east.
The spectacular one hundred twenty-five foot high Christ the Redeemer Statue that appears on top of Corcovado Mountain, has long been watching across the metropolis with outstretched arms since 1931. It is one of the more frequented of the Rio de Janeiro points of interest. Almost as impressive as the sculpture itself would be the sights of Rio and the adjoining areas from the platform at the base.
