Up the teleferico and down the train or you can walk it but its steep and at a moderate altitude so be fit and/or acclimatised. . We were there on Colombias Independance day weekend but early so not too busy. Great views and as it was a Sunday many people had gone to attend Mass which was atmospheric. Nice stations... More

My favorite place in Bogota, great view of the city and nice experience while going up and down the mountain on a cable car. Note Lovers - People believe that if lovers visit this place, the chances of breaking up are high so visit this place at your own risk.

We went on a holiday weekend in Bogota so tried to go early. It was a good idea as the line was so much shorter when we went up in the cable car compared to the lines we saw when we came down. The view of the city was great and the church at the top was nice too. I... More

To get there you have 3 options, the cable car, little train or just going up the trail. On top there are restaurants, souvenirs shops, a church. Make sure to go on a sunny day to enjoy the view. A must in bogota.

I went up via gondola, but one can also go via funicular. The ride up takes you from roughly 8,500 feet on up to over 10,300 feet. Once there, you can see matchless views of Bogotá, an historic church with the Stations of the Cross realized on an outside walk that is absolutely gorgeous. Even if you aren't religious you...

A good experience if you trip with your family or friends. The over view is fantastic and you will find typical objects of the zone and the coca tea.

You cannot go to Bogota with climbing Monserrate by funicular or cable car. It's a short ride to the top, maybe 2 minutes, and you have spectacular views of the city. There are several restaurants; I preferred to eat at one of the stands, and have the typical tamale with hot chocolate. This is a Catholic site with an area... More

This is a must see while in town. Even if there are high clouds you will still have a good view. If you are able to go up after it rains you will have a great clear view. If not there is a smog layer but still a good view. We took the train up and down as the cable... More
