Sugarloaf Mountain

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

More than 37 million travelers have soaked up the view of Rio de Janeiro from the Sugarloaf Cable Car, which takes tourists to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain, 1,732 feet above the famed sands of Copacabana Beach (to the left of the image). Built in 1912, the cable car takes 65 riders at a time from Red Beach to Urca Hill, offering heart-stopping 360-degree views of such Rio icons as Ipanema Beach and Guanabara Bay.
