Many people have made a “Climb Pedra da Gavea video” but this is one of the best we’ve seen yet. Connection Rio returnee Frank The Tank put together this awesome video of an experience many people who stay with us enjoy.
On the way back down, what better way to relax than with a shower under a natural waterfall!
Pedra da Gavea, a stunning rainforest-covered mountain that is a popular hiking trail, is situated right next to the Connection Rio house and it’s the first thing you see when you wake up in the morning.
The 2-hour climb is challenging but is popular and if you make it to the top you are rewarded with some of the most amazing views of Rio.
As you climb through the rainforest you’ll see many animals including monkeys and lizards, and will negotiate many obstacles such as rugged paths, rocky climbs and more.
