Sugarloaf Mountain, Brazil

When you visit Rio de Janeiro and you find yourself on the wonderful Botafogo Beach the Sugarloaf Mountain is quite a view.
Just one of many monolithic cliffs on this part of Brazil, Sugarloaf Mountain is situated on a peninsula in Guanabara Bay.
Travellers can also reach the top of the spectacular cliffs using a cable car which gives them a spectacular overview of the ocean and the city of Rio de Janeiro.
Given the steep incline of the mountain hiking is not possible but rock climbing enthusiasts are in for quite a treat as there are great routes to the summit.
