Christ the Redeemer hours
4. Re: simplest way to see Christ the Redeemer statue
Simply back from Rio on Monday. Christo is remarkable, getting there clearly was chaos! Getting back is worse!
We arrived at 9am and next available train had not been until 11:20. Subsequently there clearly was the delay, so our 11:20 train didn't leave until 12:20. It is a 20 minute, slowwww, ride up. The thing is then getting back. We'd to attend practically an hour to obtain regarding train straight down, plus a 25 min trip right back.
The admission company starts at 7:30 am, first train at 8:00 am ... therefore I'd make it around 7am - really it's well worth assure you get one of the primary trains up and a small wait back down.
If you can't get there that early I would you should think about a few of the other choices: taxi, shuttle van from base (numerous 'companies' offering trips), national park tour van - something.
The train isn't that unique or that fun. your time hot and dull. There are a few things enabling you to get an excellent photo if sitting regarding the right side (increasing) but there's no urgency as you see the same view - but better - from the top. So once more - get there during the break of dawn or have an alternate intend to get right up to Christo.
