One of Rio attractions that offers stunning views of the entire city from the height of 396 meters
Sugarloaf has virtually no vegetation on the slopes, and its shape really resembles a huge piece of sugar.
In 1817, a common pediatric nurse from Britain was the first person to climb to the top of Sugarloaf. A hundred years later, the government decided to build a cableway, adjacent to the top of the mountain.
There are three stops during the rise of the cableway, each of them has observation facilities. Climbing to the top of Sugarloaf to the height of 396 meters in a transparent cableway cabin, you can watch the spectacular scenery around the city.
