It will require some physical effort but it is worth it. two ways to get to the top: Funicular and Teleferico. use both. do not forget to arrange for a taxi at the exit.

A great way to experience great views of the city. for about $8usd roundtrip you glide up the beautifully gardened landscaped mountain side. At the top you see spectacular views of the city. There is a great artesenia with local crafts and shopping. Don't miss the grilled meat and corn. Delicious stop for a bite to eat. Don't be afraid... More

The view from top of this hill is definitely worth the hike. You got to ditch the funiculaire or cable car and hike it up yourself though. Enormous amount of people on sunday..you are constantly running into people and there are vendors all the way long.

If you want to see all of Bogota, this is the way to do it. Take the funicular up and marvel in the view once you arrive at the top. There are cafes at the top for drinks/snacks so you can relax and take your time enjoying the view. The cost is about $8000 COP per person.

This is absolutely the must while visiting Bogota. You can go there by both ways. We have chosen cable car up and railway back. It was good idea to try both. While you are waiting for cable car pleae note from which side it will come- right or left so you can wait for this and maybe have so luck... More

Even for 1 overnight stay, this place is a must. Come just before the sunset as you can enjoy two absolutely stunning views of Bogota. Check the weather though....

You can go on top of the mountain by cable car, cable railway or using the hiking trail. I would recommend the hiking trail to go up, it is a good exercise and you can buy food and souvenirs on your way up. The cable car and railway are expensive and annoying for waht you get. Be ready for a... More
