Pedra Bonita, Rio de Janeiro

4.9
Enjoy the vistas and some fresh air at Pedra Bonita, a popular spot in Tijuca National Park, sandwiched between Pedra de Gavea hills and Sao Conrado and Tijuca. Follow a 1.5 km (1 mi) uphill trail for about 40 minutes; once at the top, you'll take in some of the most privileged views of Rio de Janeiro. Towering above Tijuca Park's forest at 696 m (2,283 ft), this spot draws scores of hang gliders. Head to the top of the gliding ramp for a restroom and a small bar. Plan my Rio de Janeiro trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • When you arrive at the summit you stay on the same level as the clouds, I recommend taking a little house to the friest ones. The lap should take place by 4:30 p.m. then try to get to about 14:30 at most to enjoy the view up there. The trail is not very demanding, it is a good exercise. Finally the best of all is the change in the point of view provided by high places :)
