Located in the neighborhood of Vidigal, Dois Irmãos Mountain has what probably is the best view that anyone could see in Rio de Janeiro. Located between the favelas of Vidigal and Rocinha, it was almost impossible to visit this place with safety in the past. But, this scenario has changed with the government’s pacification process and now this beautiful place can be visited safely. Favela do Vidigal is the trendy favela in Rio now, with plenty of bars, restaurants and parties to enjoy.
What can Dois Irmãos hike offer
It will also be possible to see Rocinha from a different angle, as well as understand why it is considered the biggest favela in Latin America.
Once you reach the top, you will certainly be fascinated with the beauty of Cidade Maravilhosa. From there, it’s possible to see the parts of the West and the whole South Zone of Rio, Lagoa, Corcovado and even the city of Niterói. If we are lucky the monkeys will pay us a visit as well =].
The most interesting part of this RioLIVE! Activity is that it will combine a cultural tour around the favela with an ecological hike. You will interact with the locals, practice your Portuguese and definitely change the way you see and think about the favelas. It will be the perfect moment to take pictures of Rio de Janeiro. So what do you say? Join us and prepare to be amazed!!!
