Independent of your religion, the statue of Christ the Redeemer is impressive and the view is beautiful. We were lucky to get there right at the end of the day, so we saw the view at dust and at night with all the lights. A fun place to take pictures.

Went with a group of tourists from our hostel. It was crouded and in order to take pictures and selfies - needed to lift the camera above the croud. Should come early when its not that crowded. The statue and the view were amazing.

Yesterday morning we went to go up Christ the Redeemer by going to buy tickets at the kiosk near Lido Park on Copacabana. However when we got their they said it was in fog, so best to wait. So instead we went up Sugarloaf mountain. While on Sugarloaf, we started to get glimpses of CTR, and then it came out... More

It is what it is, something that has to be done, one of the modern wonders of the world, complete with incredible 360 degree views of Rio. We had an early access tour and it was worth it to beat the crowds, within 30-45 minutes of our arrival you couldn't move to get a decent photo up there. So if... More

We were staying in Botafogo district of Rio de Janeiro. From there we took a bus to Cosme Velho, which is at the base of Corcovado Mountain, and a point where you can take a tram, mini bus or walk through the park Tijuca to see Christ The Redeemer. I can't remember a bus service, but there are few going... More

Go very early in the morning or at the end of the afternoon to avoid the strong sun and the big crowds. Take your own water and a hat. You can take an Uber to get to Cosme Velho and then buy tickets to the little train to go to the top as the forest is very beautiful. After, you... More
