Great views of all of Bogota, and an interesting tram ride up. My suggestion would be to not go on Sunday, as it is much more crowded at that time, as the locals like to go up as well.

What an amazing place to visit - you do not have to be religious to take in the spirituality of this location - amazing views and panoramic photo ops. Wonderful. Can't wait to visit again!

A great day trip in Bogota! You can walk up and down the path, but I suggest taking the vehículo or teleférico. It costs $8000 COP or more or less $3 USD one way. The path is not very easy to ascend or descend. There's a nice church, spectacular views of Bogota, food, souvenirs, and pony rides for kids. It... More

This is a must see when in Bogota. The view of the city itself is great and the monastery on top of the mountain interesting. However, for me it was the vegetation around the area. Now that I'm getting into photography this was the perfect place to test my amateur skills on humming birds feeding on the wing and a... More

Fantastic view at the top. No problem to walk up and down if you like hiking and are well-trained for this altitude. Since it was on Sunday, the atmosphere was particularly lively (which I enjoyed a lot), for it was as if the whole city came there. Thousands of people, families, kids, elders, everybody climbed the footpath. Therefore, a good... More

Nice experience going up and down the stone steep hill. You will need about 1h30 to visit. Beautiful gardens on the top, in a sunny day you get to see the whole city from there. You also see many birds on the gardens.

Avoid the crowds and go in the morning via the funicular. You can also hike up the stairs, but because I had other things on my agenda that day, I went the easy way up so I would have energy do to the other things. It was cloudy and raining but the view was still spectacular!
