Great experience of a Funicular railway and cable cars. Fantastic view over Bogota but do choose a clear day.

If you are on a wheelchair they have a platform that takes you to the cableway (when we visit it was broken but the personal was kind enough to help us go up the stairs). Once you reach Monserrate (is about 5 minutes in the cableway) you found yourself with a pretty rough and irregular stone floor and very inclined... More

It's Bogotá, you're a tourist, end of story. You can see much of the city, but not the ritzy north. Maybe the most interesting thing is that you can see what's behind the mountains (looking East)...just like the saying goes, it's more mountains. The empanadas for sale next to the church are pretty good. Walking from downtown used to be... More

Highly recommended, very picturesque place... Don't walk too fast as you will need to be catching your breath due to the altitude! Great experience!

Went up on a Monday afternoon, fair queue to get up there but stunning views once there. The church is beautiful, though not stunning. Wouldn't spend more than an 2 hours up there but wouldn't certainly visit if you are in Bogota.

I enjoyed my visit to Monserrate. I took the funicular up and the teleferico back down. The teleferico (cable car) station is around the back on the right side of the station. There is a bit of a walk even after you get up there. I enjoyed walking around and realized the vastness of Bogota from this viewpoint. There are... More

It's a nice way to spend half a day. You take the Tram up the mountain and spend some hours visiting the church, restaurant and "Artesanias" stores. The view is fantastic.

When in Bogota you have to visit the top of Mount Monserrate (pronounced Mon-Ser-Ra-Tay). Firstly, i would recommend getting a cab there its not really great part of the city to just be wandering through. There are a few ways to the top - Walk, which according to Lonely Planet isn't a good idea unless going at the weekend (dodgy... More
