Hiking Corcovado to Christ the Redeemer...Question

Jump to last reply

Couple of friends and I are going to be in Rio for five days at the beginning of the World Cup. First time in South America, so we're excited. Plan to see Christ the Redeemer of course, and part of that plan including hiking up Corcovado from Parque Lage.

What we wanted to do was hike up it and then ride the cog train down. I've found mixed reports online if this is possible or not.

One thing that definitely seems necessary is to buy a ticket for entry to the statue ahead of time so that we don't hike to the top and then have to catch a van to the ticket office or anything.

But I was wondering, can we take the cog train down after hiking up? And can we buy a ticket to do so ahead of time as well the ticket being good for entry to see the statue? Anybody here done this?
