The climb up over 100 flights of stairs was well worth it! The view of Bogota was beautiful. We went before lunch so it wasn’t too crowded. Our youngest son (age 6) made the climb without difficulty. Definitely worth the time!

It’s a must if you visit bogota or if you are new in town. Authentic lift, historic buildings and all city in front of you in top of a forest. Must do.

Because the teleférico (cable car) was undergoing maintenance, we rode the funicular to the top of the mountain. Pilgrims generally make the trip on foot. The funicular was wonderful.

Even before it became a sacred place for the Spanish colonialists, it was already revered by the indigenous Muisca people. This is a place that you should not miss when you visit Bogotá.…

Both tramway and funicular rides are available. The walking trail up and/or down is to be advised. Excellent view of central Bogota. Nice trail on the top.

From City Barcelona we drove 2 hours at least, so I suggest whose stay hotel in the city, you'd better leave early. We left City around 9:30, there were some simple restaurants and cafe, food was okay but not special. - suggest you bring some water, you can buy but I felt they ripped you off. - cable car is fun experience which you don't miss. - spent 3 hours there, the view was magnificent, - the high light for me was the famous statue of Black Madonna , you have to queue for that around 20 min ? and make sure you take pictures without Flash. - it is worth to go, but you have to expect the car journey was really tiring, and with the sun that you need umbrella or sun hat. * put on sun block as well, girls may need that .…
