Trilha do corcovado

Hi everybody!!

I'm doing the trekking to the cristo redentor tomorrow morning, at 10a.m. There are two ways to go:
the expensive one, by train, 44 reales and the cheapest one, walking, with your legs......so, free!

I'm going with another girl by our own, but it would be better if we go in a bigger group. I think the trekking is 2 hours walking up till the top. The trekking starts at parque lage, at rua jardin botanico.

If someone wants to come, please let as know!
And if someone has already done and has some important tips, or something to say, let us know!!

Bom dia galera!!

Ola dudes,

I'm working on week days so I can't come.
The trekking is a bit tiring but very rewarding when you get to the top. With a good speed, we did it in 1h.

You'll have to pay 13 reals at the very top if you want to get to the Cristo.
You can get down walking to Santa Teresa and then have a beer at Bar do Mineiro (na rua Monte Alegre). It's a great neighbourhood.

See u someday for another trek.
