Pao de Acucar – Sugarloaf Mountain
The spectacular Sugarloaf Mountain, rising 396 metres (1300ft) from the water's edge of Guanabara Bay, offers visitors stunning views over the city, its beaches and beyond. A cable-car takes the effort out of the climb.
During the high season thousands flock to the mountain every day and the cable car has carried such luminaries as Albert Einstein and John F Kennedy. Reassuringly, this vehicle is considered to be one of the safest in the world and is reputedly the third cable-car line ever invented.
The mountain itself is the largest of several granite monolithic morros that tower over this stretch of coast. Its slopes are scattered with vestiges of the Atlantic Forest, which contain native species that have disappeared from other areas of the Brazilian coast.
