Great experience, had to walk up the mountain a little bit, found the Simon Bolivar near. I thought I was going to see the Virgin, but the Cable take you to a Church, 15 Via Crucis, to stores, and restaurants. Very beautiful view, and photos. Takes around 3 hours to see everything, at least 2 hours.

This is a must-see, if you visit Bogota. The city is already more than 8,000 feet above sea-level. So, you are starting your cable car ascent above a place like Denver, Colorado. So, you will ride in the clouds.

Amazing view of the city. Take your time to enjoy the scenery. You can find a snack shop by the main entrance if you get hungry. My tip is walk around the top. A small walking path can be found towards the back.

from the beginning to the end Monserrate will amaze you. I took the mono rail to the top where you can discover the amazing city of Bogota. There are 2 restaurants with lovely food and international drinks.

Walk up or ride the cable car to to get the best view of the city. Getting to the bottom of the hill by taxi or public transport is very easy and the ride up in the cable car or the funicular is fun. Be mindful of altitude sickness if you just arrived in the city; the summit is around... More

You get good views but as a local tipped us off from the other mountain next to it you get better and not the same number of tourists.

Walking to the top was a little harder than we anticipated, and both my husband and I are in good shape. It took us about an hour. The altitude gets you for sure. However, it is well worth it because you really get to mingle with the locals and you're kind of on the same team as you work towards... More

We had a fantastic time atop Mount Monserrate, the views were absolutely stunning. We had hoped to hike up but after walking to the base we were told that the trail was closed. Not sure if this is the case every Tuesday but we found the trail entrance gate guarded by police and moved onto the cable car. Queuing was... More
