This is a must visit destination while in Bogota. If weather is rigth you can see most of the city from there. You should also visit the close mountain of Guadalupe, specially during work days which are calmer than weekends.

Wait for a day with no clouds and the view will be magnificent. Entrance on the Funicular is confusing. No taxi stands and the ones available will charge double of the regular rate. Be cautious. If you have hearth problems' think twice. The high altitude will take its toll on the top of the mountain.

It is a place to hit if you go to Bogota. My advise is to take the teleferico de Bogota to go to monserrate and walk when coming back. Enjoy this fantastic place.

don't go on week days is very empty not safe, go on Sundays or any catholic day is safe because is full of people and police men the amount of people also makes your hike a bit uncomfortable but view worth it is a good leg exercise!

A great hike up to the top, a beautiful property to discover once we arrived! Although we were advised the hike to the top could be unsafe, we found it to be anything but. Highly recommended!

The visit to the top of Monserrate should be on the list of all vistors to Bogota - but only when the weather is good. Since the top of Monserrate is several hundred meters above the city, the view from the top could be in clouds. On a clear day, the views are magnificent! Visitors can reach the top by... More

After arriving at the spot where you can take the 'funicular' or cable car or dare to walk on the stairs on a sunny day, you will be amazed by the excellent view from a 3100 meter height! Worth being there to enjoy the nature with all the flowers and birds - spectacular, especially if you come when it's winter... More

Every part of this tour is impressive. From the cable car trip to the top, to the church itself, to the view of sprawling Bogota. Even if you're not religious (like myself), you'll be happy you visited Monserrate. There's a nice little mountain top village as well as the church, and the gardens are also lovely.

Easy to get to via the train or cableway and with great views of the city from the top. Well worth spending half of your day on a visit. Beware the altitude - it's over 3,000 metres (10,000 feet) at the top so move slowly and be wary of altitude sickness!
