The  Tijuca Forest and Corcovado Tour , is a two in one package. It starts with a visit to the  Christ the Redeemer Statue,  one of the new seven wonders of the planet . The Corcovado (“Hunchback”) mountain, was named for its shape, due to its narrow summit . Building the statue back  in 1926 was a big challenge for the engineers. It is the most popular attraction of Corcovado mountain and brings over 300,000 visitors every  year. From the peak’s platform, the panoramic view includes downtown Rio, as well as the south area.

 After visiting the statue, tour continues  to  Tijuca Forest . The name “Tijuca” comes from  Tupi language and means “water that smells bad”. Indians called the nearby    mangrove “Tijuca”, which is a saline coastal  habitat with a strong  water smell. Later,  the name Tijuca also became the name of the mountains and the neighborhood around it. It is a natural boundary that separates  the West  from the  South, Central and North zones of the city. The  park  has over 3000 species of plants, and hundreds of bird types. Without the park, the city  temperature would probably increase around 2 degrees  celsius. Tour includes visits to corcovado, Chinese View, Taunay`s Waterfalls and Visitor Center.
