This is well worth your time. Take the cable car and the train so that you can experience both. At the top of the mountain you can see for miles and miles. It a safe place to visit and if you can attend a church service on top of the mountain on Sunday. Bring a jacket cause it's cold at... More

A must to see the whole City and get oriented. A good mixture of tapiocas down to earth Colombian food. Indispensable ir, para ver y mostrar. Muy buena cuidas realmente típica.

Seeing Bogota from above is a must for every tourist. Go towards dusk so you can enjoy the city during the day, as the sunsets, and again after night fall. When I was there the hiking trails were closed due to robberies.

We took the teleférico on a rainy day. We had a great time walking around the shops while enjoying a cool, rainy day. A must see if you visit Bogotá!

Tip: After 02:00 pm is less crowded. Climate changes often so be aware about the best moment. Closing at 11:00pm it's worthy to also visit it when the sun goes down, to see colour changing and then Bogota by night. Not too many food options but being at 3.150 meters up from sea level, it's better to avoid your blood... More

This is a Bogota landmark. You will need at least a couple of hours set aside here because there is usually a line for the transport up the mountain. Totally worth the wait. The views are spectacular, they have typical Colombian snacks like almohabanas and te de coca (yes, coca), as well as little restaurants for full meals. They have... More

we were the first to arrive early in the morning, super nice ride going up. we did not realize how thin the air gets at 3150 mts we had to walk slowly and take deep breaths of air, wel worth it. the church is magnificent, and the views of Bogota are beyond words.a must when visiting the capital..

It was quite handy to get around with a year a half old on a stroller. The Montserrate has really amazing views over Bogota. There is also a little market. The restaurant there is very nice too - book in advance. You can also get there walking up the hill if have enough stamina. During the rainy season they stop... More
