Hiking to Pico da Tijuca

We stayed up and watched the sunrise on Ipanema beach this morning, with some snacks and a few packs of beers. It’s the third time I’ve watched the sunrise this week, I’m not sure how I am managing!

We got back to the house at about 7.30 and then I went to bed and got up at 9.30 because I wanted to hike up through the rainforest to Tijuca Peak. This is the same place we hiked before but the trail was shut by the time we got there, this time we got a taxi right up through the forest to the top of the hike.

Beginning of the trail…

View of Rio on the way to the top…

Some crazy stairs to get up the last part…

At the top 1021m…

 

The view from the top, this picture doesn’t do it justice…

On the walk back down…
