Rio in Tours, hiking e Trekking
The Tijuca Peak is the highest of Rio de Janeiro, at 1022m altitude and has a beautiful view of much of the city. It is considered one of the best trails in the city. The tour starts with a visit to the Chinese View and Taunay Waterfall (the highest waterfall in Rio), all within the Tijuca National Park.
The Tijuca Peak trail begins in Bom Retiro, a beautiful spot on top of the park.
The route is well signposted and its difficulty is moderate. On the ride in dense forest can run into butterflies, hear the birds singing, spotting monkeys having fun jumping from one branch to another, lizards running scared of our steps, as well as insects and cobwebs. In addition, the trail is well protected from the sun to the point where the road reaches the rock that forms the peak itself, from then on there is little shade and the ground is much more inclined.
