What a wonderful view of the City, flanked by mountains on all sides, and you you go upto 3000 mt+. its Chilly up here. Its a pity its unsafe to visit at Night for obvious reasons.

Stunning views. Cable car is a fun safe ride and I'm horribly scared of heights. A bit chilly on top so dress accordingly. Take your camera!

Great view of the city!! Wear warm clothes. It is chilly up there!! A must place to visit in Bogota. Then you can have dinner at San Isidro. It is a great experience.

A group of us went here, took the tram, and had dinner at one of the restaurants at the top. Dinner was great with good food and wine. I forgot the name of the restaurant, but it was very nice (I think it was something like "white house"). It gets cold at night up at the top of the mountain,... More

Great experience and great lookout over the city. Would highly recommend. Was quite beautiful with a light mist coming over the mountain.

I have done plenty of mountain hikes over the years having lived in Hong Kong but this is one of the more difficult hikes I have done. The altitude was a bit of an issue for me having recently arrived in Bogota from Rio but despite it being hard it was well worth the effort. Great views of Bogota. A... More

The race up in record time is 26 minutes. (Normally folks can walk it in an hour 45). I could not fall down this mountain in 26 minutes. For those whom are weak of heart, take the tram enjoy the views. The church and the grounds on top is more than worth the trip up.

1500 steps, 3170 m altitude, 1.5 hours hike - be prepared if you decide to walk up. Better to go on Saturday, Sunday can be very crowded. The hike is tough but worth to do it. The view from Monserrate on a sunny day is amazing. Wear proper shoes and clothes and bring suncream with you. You can buy gifts... More
