The place have a very nace and all view of bogota, I was there with some friends and family, the experience was good, so many shops where you can buy a tradicional staff and souvenir, also I try the Coca tea, and other typical deserts from the region. - the Mass was good, spiritual moment for all participants.

Nice view of Bogotá, an impressive church, and a pleasant park. Lots of interesting birds if you take the time to look for them. There is fairly limited seating on top, and very few veg/vegan options for food, so be prepared.

Must visit - amazing view of the city. Went as soon as it opened on a Friday, there were no lines. The main restaurants open at noon so those looking for a drink/lunch with a view should taken that in consideration.

A must-see place to go when in Bogota. Once up there, in a clear day you may see all the extension of the city. There's a church devotet to El Señor Caido, and 2 restaurants. For a local experience, I had lunch at one of the stalls at the end of the souvenir area. Good and affordable food. For a... More

If there was a 3.5 star rating for good (vs 4 for very good) then I'd score it with a half mark. The trip is well worth it for the 18.000 COP price (less than £5). We went in the afternoon when the cable car is running, the vehicular railway runs in the morning. There is a small market at... More

I took the funicular (steep railway) up at about 10am, maybe a little earlier, and the cable car down when it opened at 12. COP18,000 round trip on a Tuesday morning. The walkway at the top has a smooth pathway at the side so you *could* get a wheelchair up it if you're determined but it's very steep. The view... More

A definite must-do in Bogota. We didn't stay to watch the sunset, but heard that was quite spectacular. The restaurant at the top wasn't open when we went, but there were plenty of food outlets (would recommend plantain with cheese and fruit sauce!) The view is amazing - you can see the mountains on the left and city on the... More

There are 2 ways to get to the top of the Monserrate: One can take the cable car or climb up the stairs. I with my family climbed up the 1,500 stairs going from 7,000 feet hight to over 10,000 ft to the church. Tough walk but so beautiful highly recommend for everybody that can make it. Took us about...

Amazing view over a city of 8 million people. Also recommendable to have lunch at one of the restaurants while enjoying the view.
