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

The tram/cable car ride was inexpensive, short but uneventful. Scenery was so-so, nothing spectacular. Still, it was a good way to burn a few hours. Lots of small food vendors at the top with souvenir shops.

The view is magnificent, try to go on a weekday, Sundays are just way too crowded and getting can be quite a hassle, once up there, give yourself time to admire the view both of the city and the green that surrounds it. There's no way you won't love it here. Food is good an you get a sense of... More

Just a short ride up the mountain and I forgot I was in Bogota. It is so busy and dirty and sometimes dangerous in Candelaria, so I was thrilled to find that nearby I got visit such a beautiful escape. It is my favorite thing to do in Bogota, by far. There isn't a ton to do once you are... More

Stunning view at the top and well worth a trip up the funicular which is also a treat. Can get cloudy and wet quickly so beware. Wonderful views - book in advance for a restaurant sitting at the top at busy periods - a 'souvenir sewer' market in spots at the top but the vendors are not in your face... More

Not difficult to get to from the City of Bogota. We had fantastic weather the day we visited, sun was out. Make sure you take your camera as the views are exceptional. We walked up to the top, and were blessed with some magic scenery over looking the city. Very lush green surrounds.
