Quite high up and Bogota is already at a high altitude. Fabulous views. Interesting church at the top. Nice local market with handicrafts; some more typical and some quite unusual. You can buy Cocoa Tea, Panera, and other local Colombian foods and drinks. Cable car up. Funicular down. Popular destination. Be prepared to wait to get up and down. But... More

Great activity, even in sketchy weather. Get there early (ie 9-930am) to beat the queue orherwise, it will be a long haul. 19.000 pesos per person. In morning (before noon), its the finnicula, in afternoon/sunset, its cable car (you dont get to choose). Its not disabled-friendly and no wheelchairs or walkers. Wear good walking shoes as paths at top are... More

You can see the whole city, if the weather permits. It's much higher than the downtown and some people experienced an altitude sickness. So, walk slowly until you get used to it.

We rode the funicular in the morning (cable car in the afternoon) up Monserrate to see the stunning views across the vast city of Bogota. Beautiful gardens, a pretty church and birds everywhere. A lovely way to spend a few hours.

Monserrate is a must see when in Bogota. We visited the mount as part of a tour with Bogota Pass (check out my review). We took the teleférico up. Once at the top we heard the history of the mount, went into the church, ate some empanadas and enjoyed the view. They also have gift shops and booths to buy... More

Get there early or be prepared to stand in line for over an hour going up and coming down. The views and architecture are worth it. Wear good walking shoes as you are climbing some steep trails once you get off the ride to the top. It is not really the top. Avoid the restaurants at the end of the... More

Such a fun ride up the mountain and down. Loved the views, landscaping, and architecture. Definitely a must on your trip to Bogota. Get into the first section of the cable car for the best view and stand by the window because the cars fill up. Get there 15 minutes before the open ( I think 10am) to get in... More

Try to go up with the Funicula (train) and down with the cable car. The best view over Bogota and a small church make the trip pretty cool.

This is a church that is filled with tourists. It does have great views of Bogota and the ride up and down on the funicular is great.

It is a must to visit this great place if you are visiting the city. It has a great view and it is a symbol of the local culture. I have been there many times and I never get bored of going. Best time to go would be around 5 p.m of a sunny day, so you have the chance... More
