A spectacular view of Bogota. Gorgeous flowers. Fabulous restaurants. A must when here. I have to write 50 words :( There is nothing to dislike about this place. Simply stunning.

I went there a couple of times already, and I prefer it at night. The city is wonderful from the top and is quite empty, so, I enjoyed it better. However, on Sundays there is a cheaper fare than the rest of the days ( I think around 8 o 9 thousand COP) and close earlier, while the rest of... More

We did not start out to walk up the steep and somewhat strenuous trail to the top of the mountain. We made the mistake of arriving after 10:00 AM on a Sunday, which is the busiest day of the week. Once we saw the lines for both the funicular and the cable were at least an hour we decided to... More

An all around great attraction. Great views of the city and country. The food at the top. Is authentic and reasonably priced. I have read that a walk to the cable car can be dangerous on weekdays. Please check advisories.

We went up with the cable car, a short ride but nice. We walked a little bit and visited the cafeteria to watch Japan-Colombia and enjoy a nice cappuccino. The empanadas are good as well as the other snacks, prices more than reasonable.

great hike! buy a cable car ticket down at the top at the cafe...and a coffee is a good idea too. The hike is long and steep and only for those who are fit and willing to work and sweat. You might meet monks chanting and training young initiates on your way, along with a jungle of plumage :)

I liked everything about it - from the fun funicular ride (great views) to the little stores and the beautiful scenes up top. My pictures from Monserrate are my favorites from all of Colombia.
