Half-day Guided hike to Morro do Corcovado with secret Waterfall

This experience offers a very pleasant trail through the Tijuca Forest, with a very beautiful view and the best waterfall, know to few, in the South Zone of Rio.
We will do a walk starting by Parque Lage to Morro do Corcovado. The path passes through beautiful trees, native animals and waterfalls. At the top of the hill we can enjoy an excellent view of the entire South Zone of Rio, including Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas and main beaches.
We will descend the mountain by another trail, which leads to a beautiful waterfall, with abundant water and tranquility to rest and return with a fresh head home.
You will be accompanied by a guide specialized in Geosciences who can add a lot of knowledge to the tour, with information on Geography and Geology of Rio de Janeiro.
Other things to note
The trail offers medium effort, so I advise you to bring comfortable clothes and shoes for physical activity, drink and food.
