Nag-hike kami pataas ng Vista Chinese. Kita kita mo ang Rio galing sa taas. Ang ganda ng view. Walang photos makakapalit sa anong nakikita ng mata. Hindi madali yung hike pero worth it.

Vista Chinesa trekking is a hard walking, but that worths it as you got amazing views on the top. To do the Vista Chinesa trekking you have to go inside the Parque da Tijuca, the beautiful Nacional Park that is the lung of Rio de Janeiro.

As the trekking is some way hard, we bought some water before starting, once water provided we walked just next to Jardim Botânico. We passed by Globo TV and after that we walked by Horto neighbourhood

We were a nice group of nine people from different countries, all of them Portuguese language students. Our students were from France, Switzerland, UK, Japan, Peru, Mexico and Phillipines. See a picture of all our students once we arrived to the entrance of Parque da Tijuca.

Once inside the Parque Nacional da Tijuca, the trekking got harder. As we were going up we saw some boys trying to open a Jaca (Jackfruit) as the road is plenty of jaqueiras, but to open it it is not easy as they were trying hard. Our student Laurent was looking if some taxi was coming to take it, but he worked hard and he made it until the top!

It was great that Vista chinesa was empty of visitors, so we had the chance to take a picture without photobombing selfie sticks guys around. See how beautiful it is!

Great view with great Portuguese students.

Our students get to know some of the neighbourhoods or important points of the city from Vista Chinesa and its stunning view. We relaxed there and we took pictures and rest. We left happily with a big smile on our faces.
