The Sugarloaf Mountain is a 396-meter (1,299 ft) tall granite peak located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It is located at the entrance of Guanabara Bay and offers panoramic views of the city, bay, and Atlantic Ocean. Sugarloaf Mountain was named after the traditional shape of molding refined sugar into conical molds.

The Sugarloaf Mountain is a popular tourist destination, attracting millions of visitors each year. The attraction features two cable cars that transport visitors to the summit of the mountain. The first cable car journey takes visitors from the base to the Morro da Urca, which is a smaller peak located halfway up the Sugarloaf Mountain. The second cable car then takes visitors from the Morro da Urca to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain. The trip provides breathtaking views of the city and its surroundings.

The Sugarloaf Mountain is also a popular spot for rock climbing and has been a climbing destination since the 1930s. Climbers scale the steep granite face to reach the summit.

The Sugarloaf Mountain is an iconic symbol of Rio de Janeiro and is one of the city's most famous landmarks. It is a must-visit destination for tourists and locals alike and is considered one of the most popular tourist attractions in Brazil.
