My husband and I walked up on a Monday morning at about 11am. We had been told that it may be dangerous and it would be better to go on Sunday when all the local pilgrims walk up and it was busy, but it was fine. I even left my camera at home, to be safe, and that was a... More

Great view of Bogotá. I went there around 5pm to see the sunset. The city is bigger than I thought and it's really nice to see when the city lights up at night. But bring a jacket, it's freezing up there.

We visited this site during our trip to Bogota, this was my 2nd visit to Montserrat but well worth it as the previous visit was 10 years ago and you can never get tired of the spectacular views from the top of the mountain.. There are 2 ways to get to the top, one being with the cable car and... More

Decided to walk up around 730 ish in the morning. We saw the sun start to come out and hauled tail to the pathway. I read mixed reviews about safety concerns walking up but we had absolutely zero issues. There were quite a few locals who were friendly and make you feel like an elephant as they breeze past you....

The altitude is takes a lot to adjust to, but it was worth it to see the view! I would recommend going one way in the tram and the other in the train. The trains view is a little blocked by the trees, but still worth it.

Beautiful views of Bogota from this mountain. Try to check the weather forecast to ensure the day is not very cloudy. We used the train to go up and down the mountain, as the cable car was unavailable on the day. The restaurants seem nice, but only open after mid day. The food at the café was sadly not very...

Great viewpoint of the whole city, you will see religious tourism and " redemptive suffering" catholic. Climb up the hundreds of stairs is demanding but rewarding.

If you're a photographer - of any level - don't miss this place. Sunset was around 1800 so we started out around 1645 - traffic can be horrible and the lines can be long to ride up the mountain. We went on a Tuesday evening and there were no lines at all. A few things I'll do next time... Take... More

Such an interesting place to get fantastic views of the whole of Bogota - breathtaking! I loved the market and little restaurants at the top of the mountain as well as the well attended gardens.

Great views and definitely worth the ride up! The church wasn't out of this world, but it's definitely a beautiful grounds area and viewing deck.
