The walk up Monserrate is a not to be missed activity in Bogota, partly for the views, partly for the market and church at the top, and partly to be in the Bogota scene - lots of locals walk it on the weekend. We walked up and took the funicular down.

Te views are spectacular, the church was full and there is no order whatsoever so you must enter and exit though crowded spaces, but it was a nice visit, by all means wear confortable shoes as it is an upward walk. the scenary, the flowers and trees are spectacular!

This is an absolute must see when in Bogota! The ride to the top is exhilarating and the garden awaiting your arrival is lovely. Be sure to wear sunscreen and stick around for the bells to chime.

This is a magnificient place to visit. The views of the whole city of Bogota are breathtaking. We took the funicular up & down. The plants & trees are beautiful. There are kiosk type shops at the top. This is a must see when visiting Bogota.

No trip is complete without a journey to overlook a fine city. Be sure to walk further up the hill past the trinket shops to taste some fine vendor foods.

You can't come to Bogotá and not do this. It's fun, affordable, and the scale of the facilities on the mountain (shops, restaurants etc) is quite surprising.

Walk up on Sunday with what seems like the entire population of Bogota. Or if you prefer, choose a weekday for a more tranquil experience. The climb is easy... unless you are half dead, or lazy. But keep an eye on your loved one. We lost each other as one stepped aside to take a photo and the other trudged... More

Definetly a must do in Bogota! You can see all of Bogota from the top of this hill. The church is lovely with a statue of the Fallen Christ. There is a group of stands selling all kinds handmade goods and trinkets. Got some fabulous pictures!

The views over the city by night are spectacular and the cable car ride to the top is nice. I didn't go during the day, but I can imagine it will be a totally different experience. Definitely recommend to do this

If you're willing to exert yourself a little bit, It's definitely worth the effort. The views of the city are stunning in all dire If you're willing to make the effort to climb the 1500 steps to the top, you'll be rewarded with some of the best views of the city and of course the church which is.
