Vista Chinesa
380 meters above the sea, the pavilion in oriental style, strategically in a clearing in the woods, the "Chinese View" (Vista Chinesa) was built between 1902 and 1906 as a way to honor the Chinese, who brought tea cultivation to Brazil in the early nineteenth century. Many brave people venture, up such a steep hill by bike or on foot, but is possible to make by car or taxi. At the beginning of the climb there are two waterfalls open to the public, "Grotto Waterfall" (Cachoeira da Gruta) and "Waterfall of the Apes" (Cachoeira dos Macacos). Arriving in the Chinese view, you can indulge yourself with a wonderful panoramic view containing: Christ the Redeemer (Cristo Redentor), Guanabara Bay, Sugar Loaf Mountain, Lake Rodrigo de Freitas, Ipanema and Leblon beaches, plus Hill Two Brothers (Morro Dois Irmãos).
