The views from Mount Monserrate afford a spectacular views over the huge City of Bogota. There are also two restaurants on Mount Monserrate which are very good - one is open at lunch and the other for dinner. Definitely worth a trip on the cable car or train to Monseratte whilst in Bogota.

Monserrate overlooks the entire city. There is a simple church, a nice restaurant, cobblestone paving and the ever present souvenir shops at the top all accessed by a cable car up an incredibly steep mountainside. One can climb up the mountain as I'm told some of the locals do in the way of penance on holy days, but at some... More

What ever the reason of your visit to Bogota , try and find the time to get to the top of this mountain , that has become a symbol of the city . Use the "Teleferico" or cable car to get there . Recommended the 2 restaurants Santa Clara and San Isidro that makes them the perfect excuse, and also... More

This place offers you the best view of Bogotá. You can get to the top of the mountain through a funicular, cableway or walking (a long road but it worth it). The church in the top is small but beautiful, recommended for a quality family time.

best to take the tram up for the view and walk down much more fun as many stalls and little canteens to visit on the way down

To get there I went by cab to Monserrate station, and got on the funicular to the Mount Monserrate site. The site is 3,127 meters above sea level and offer the best view you can get of the city of Bogota.

This attraction is not to be missed. Although it involved queuing for a period of time for the cable car, it was worthwhile for the beautiful views. There are cafes and vendors selling ice creams on top. You can relax and enjoy the beautiful views of Bogota

One of the most breathtaking views I've seen to date!! We took a cable car ride up the mountain, though we were a little winded with the high elevation, the view looking out over Bogota was absolutely amazing. Our tour guide gave us the interesting a beautiful history of the church, the mountain and the people that visit the mountain... More

Go on a clear day, the views of the city are very nice. Unless you are lucky to be near the windows the large cable cars, you will not see anything from the crowded car. The cog train was not crowded at all. One still has a good climb from the train station up top to get to the cable... More

Great tour but if you come from a low level area the elevation should not be ignored. Highly recommend. Get the CoCo tea!!
