From the peak's viewing platform the panoramic view includes downtown Rio, Sugarloaf Mountain, the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas (lake), Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, Estádio do Maracanã (Maracanã Stadium), and several of Rio's favelas.
The Corcovado is an iconic location in Rio: it is the granite peak where the famous Christ statue is located. Don't confuse it with the nearby Sugarloaf Mountain, and make sure to visit both, as they offer stunning views of Rio and its surroundings.
