Enjoy the Breathtaking Views from Sugarloaf Mountain

d_040772jp-004Sugarloaf Mountain (Pão de Açúcar, in Portuguese) is a 396 meter (1,299 foot) peak on a peninsula in Rio de Janeiro. It is called Sugarloaf, as it resembles cones of sugar that were used prior to the emergence of granulated sugar.

The summit of Sugarloaf Mountain provide gorgeous panoramic views of Rio.  One exhilarating method of getting up there is by rock climbing. If rock climbing is a bit strenuous for your taste, another breathtaking method of getting to the top is by taking the cable car. Visit Bondinho.com for ticket information.
