Chapéu Mangueira

Located in the favela of Babilônia the Chapeu Mangueira is another attraction for lovers of Rio de Janeio trail. In an area controlled by the army, we suggest hiring a local guide. 

The place offers a sensational view of Guanabara Bay, Copacabana Beach and Sugar Loaf. The trail is easy and the height of the hill is 200 meters.

Dois irmãos

Other wonderful trail in Rio de Janeiro. The Dois Irmaos Located in the Favela do Vidigal (very safe Favela to visit) has a great view from the top of 500 meters. The tour can be made by children and the elderly but remembering that it is a trail up the hill and considered mid-level (1.5 km away).
