Brazil Trip - Rio de Janeiro 4

Leaving the city of Aparecido towards Rio de Janeiro. Rio de Janeriro is a wonderful city with beautiful beach, which attract many tourist year round. It is the place for famous annual Brazil Carnival and it will be the place to hold for 2016 Summer Olympic.
We took the cable car to the Sugarloaf mountain, because the island mountain shape like sugarloaf.  On the top of this mountain we can view the Rio city and the beautiful surrounding islands and beaches. Also to view the distant Christ mountain.
Next, we took the trem (mountain train) climbing up to Mtn Corcovado, also known as Christ Mountain because the gigantic Jesus Christ statue stood there. The statue is 30 metres (98 ft) tall, not including its 8-metre (26 ft) pedestal, and its arms stretch 28 metres (92 ft) wide and is located at the peak of the 700-metre (2,300 ft) Corcovado mountain overlooking the city of Rio.This place has been named one of the 7 wonder in modern world.
