Beautiful. Best views of the city and the mountains. Avoid sundays, it is too crowded. Last time I went on saturday (4pm) and it was very perfect. Bring sunscreen, sun glasses and hat. You can hike up, but if you have mobility problems or a...More

It is a really nice spot in Bogota, and a must-visit. The views must be amazing, but at the time it was rainy and couldn't see much

If you want to have the best view of Bogotá, visit Monserrate at night, the view is amazing, 3,152 mt. closer to the stars. You can go up till 12 pm. and maybe visit one of the restaurants.

Dress appropriately if you plan to hike up. You'll be drenched in sweat in no time and then when you get to the top, you'll freeze from the wind. Incredible view, highly recommend.

I can bet the best view you will see is at night. It is a safety place, also you can have some food or any hot drink. I really recommend this plan

Views definitely worth it. Even though I am afraid of heights a bit. Would go again. My friends walked and the elevation got to them. I took the ca led car.

The trip to Monserrate is worthwhile. The view is not great but the place up there is nice and there are two good restaurants (I recommend the Santa Clara). People told us to take a taxi up and down to the lift because it is...More

On average I would say about 45 minutes. It’s easier on your knees to climb it than it is to walk down due to the steepness and uneven steps. I would recommend taking the cable car or funicular down.

I could not see any though but it goes up and down in every 20-25mins. Funicular is much better to come back. Dont waste your time in queue for cablecar.

Hi Lisa and thanks for your question. I assume so as our guide for the day already had our tickets when he picked us up at the hotel. We booked a guided half-day tour with Impulse Travel. Was really worth the money. John
