about sugarloaf mountain

Sugarloaf Mountain, lies in close proximity to the Corcovado Mountain, which houses the statue of Christ The Redeemer at its peak. Its height is about 1300 feet. Rising this high above sea level, it makes for an interesting tourist hub to visit, as it gives a brilliant view of the whole geography of Rio de Janeiro at large and the Christo Redeemer from a short distance.

A rock formation, made of quartz and granite, this monolithic structure juts into the air as though it has risen straight out of the waters of the Atlantic Ocean shooting out into the Rio skyline. It was named so in the heydays of sugarcane trade in Brazil by Portugal. Cable cars transport tourists and locals alike at various intervals of time, at an approximate span of 20 minutes to Sugar Loaf Mountain. 

Besides the obvious sightseeing activities, and spotting Rio city by day and night, one can also opt for rock climbing as a popular activity that takes place here at Sugarloaf Mountain from time to time.
