    The first leg of a journey by cablecar to Sugar Loaf Mountain (Pao de Azucar) takes you to the Morro de Urca where there's a restaurant and gift shop.

    This is your first stop on your way up to Sugarloaf Mountain, if you take the cable car up. Great views from here, and this is where the helicopter rides take off from if you opt for that.

    This is amazing size cliffs with cable car taking you to the top. Great view of the city and the Corcovado. You will be able to see the Copacabana beach to the left and huge yacht marina to the right. Worth going in good weather as in Corcovado. Part of the organized trip.
