City View from First Stop to Sugarloaf Mountain in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The cable car to Sugarloaf Mountain makes one stop along the way. After traveling for three minutes and a distance of 2,000 feet, you arrive at Morro da Urca. The station has an elevation of 722 feet. Although this is small compared to other peaks in Rio, the overlooks will amaze you. On the lower left is Urca where your ride started. In the middle is the beachfront neighborhood of Botafogo. In the background is the residential district of Humaitá. Look closely between the tree limbs and you will see Christ the Redeemer perched on Corcovado Mountain.
