This trail is unbelievable. I have been to Rio several times and have seen some nice views of zona sul, but nothing even remotely compares to the views you get from the top of the 2 irmaos.
The motorcycle ride through the favela was a fabulous experience in and of itself as you get to see inside of one Rio's biggest favelas. The hike is challenging but extremely rewarding. Eduardo is an incredible guide and a great person who truly cares for your experience.
I will be doing this again next time in Rio for sure!!
