We live in Bogota and anytime guests come, am always happy to take them there! Great view of the city and two great restaurants on top - one more fancy French (San Isidro, but not stuff - you can arrive in jeans), and the other one with a cafe on the lower floor and a nicer restaurant upstairs (Santa Ana).

It's a good way to see the whole of the city. I recommend getting the cable car up to the top as the walk up can apparently be dangerous at some times of the day! There are shops and restaurants at the top if you want to buy some souvenirs and have a bite to eat!

If you are in Bogota, then you HAVE to go to Monserrate. The view is amazing! Really puts a perspective on how big the city is.

The short ride on the cable car is really nice and spectacular, as are the views from above. On Sundays the rides are at half price, which will save you a bundle if you are with your family. Beware of the food prices. They have many food options but nearly all are really overpriced. On the way down you have... More

Took the train up and the funicular down. We were there in the early afternoon and it was busy, but not crazy. Wonderful views of bogota and the surrounding area. I probably wouldn't go in the rain because the mist and clouds impact the.views. Other than the views, the main thing to see is the church and Stations of the... More

We rode up in the gondola and down in the train. The view was stunning. We went on a Sunday morning and were some of the only tourists. It was mostly Colombian families attending church. The little market at the top has some great little shops and the sculptures everywhere are lovely. It gets a little chilly at the top,... More

The Cerro de Monteserrate is a must visit. Access is by cable car (there is a funicular which is currently disabled). The view is great (is over 3,600 meters high). In addition to a great view of Bogota, there are cafes, restaurants and many craft shops.

Take the cable car on your way up but be brave and come back using the million stairs. Will it be very tiresome? yes, but you get to see lots of locals (religious and athletes) and have more fun.

situated on one of the mountains above bogota, access through funicular or teleferico (or walking, more than 2 hours climb). Lots of religious and souvenir shops there (expensive) a small church, and views on the mountain forest behind (although mainly pine and eucalyptus now). The view on the city of bogota is excellent.
