Tijuca Forest with picnic


"The trail is of moderate effort, with some obstacles (stones) on the trail. We will cross an extension of 7 km, ± 3 hours of walking in decide. That is why I chose to start in Alto da Boa Vista ingrown residential neighborhood in the woods, on top of the Tijuca massif where is the Christ the Redeemer monument and other points of interest that will pass. After the walk, we arrive at the Table of the Emperor where we will make the picnic. We will drive to the Botanical Garden neighborhood, on the way a photo stop in the Chinese View. Finishing the day, we will visit the Botanical Garden (with tickets). End our service
