Sugarloaf Mountain or Pão de Açúcar is probably the most famous tourist site in Rio de Janeiro, alongside the huge sculpture of Christ the Redeemer. Dominating the bay from its perch 395 metres above sea level, this granite peak offers a stunning view of the bay. One can reach the top thanks to a number of train and cable-car systems linking it to the heights of Babilônia and Urca.
The main cable car was the first in Brazil (it was completed in 1912). During the high season (December-January-February and July), the cable car carries nearly 3,000 people each day.
Sugarloaf Mountain is also a hotspot for climbing in urban areas. With more than 250 different paths Sugarloaf Mountain guarantees thrills for all climbers.
