I went up at night and was so amazed at the view! Can see all of Bogota lit and it's peaceful and quiet. God is so Holy!

This is easily the most traditional spot you can visit during your stay in Bogotá. I do recommend, if you are hiking to the top, to go early, i.e., 6:00 a.m. If you are taking the funicular or the cable car, feel free to go in the afternoon. At about 6:00 p.m. it gets crowded.

SI quieres fotos o vistas de todo bogota, Monserrate y la Calera son los lugares. Si t gustaria subir caminando, es mucho mejor muy temprano pues mucha gente sube. If you wanna have grt pics/views from Bogota, this place and la Calera are the best. If you want to climb it walking or jogging my personal recommendation i to do... More

Wonderful view, from the top of the hill you see the all city. There are two ways to go up there: funiculare and teleferico. It's the same price (20.000,00 - US$ 10,00) and the best is to go up with the train (funiculare) and came back by teleferico. The restaurant up there was cheap and has good and typical food.We...

I enjoyed the train/cable car ride up Mount Monserrate. The views of the city are excellent and the gardens around the area are quite pretty. I believe this is one of the top 5 things to do in Bogota.

If you come to Bogota, you really should go up Mt Monserrate. If you decide to hike up, it's a climb of 2,000+ feet in about a mile and a half (and Bogota is already at 8,300 feet), so it's reasonably strenuous. But it's paved the whole way and there are stands with water or gatorade about midway up. Or,... More

Rode cable car up. Quick ride. Do this the 1st thing arriving Bogota. You can get your bearings for the entire city. Sky scrapers, bull arena, old churches, to the outlying small houses on the perimeters. As far as you can see from the left to the right, and up the mountain on the opposite side of the valley.

We took the cable car up to the top and back down which was fun and not too expensive. I'd consider walking down if I was to do it again. I think walking up would probably be exhausting. The views are incredible - well worth the trip.
