Went up by train and had to stand in line for quite a while. You can go there by train or by funicular/cable car, but the latter seems to start its operation later on and doesn't go on a regular basis.

We paid 18000 COP per person which was a little too pricy for what you get. It's definitely beautiful but for budget travelers (like us who were traveling South America for 4 months) - the price may be a little steep.

We spent about an hour on the mountain walking around and exploring the different features offered on the mountain. Very... More

Without visiting this place, you did not visit Bogota. Take a morning the time to visit this mountain. A morning? 2 hours is enough! You go up with an elevator, enjoy the view and the little street with some shops. Rest a bit and go back. The view shows really how big the city is.

Vale pela vista. Filas demoradas para subir até o top. Worth the view. The queues take time to climb the mountain

Go up e all in the morning to avoid queues. 1 the walking path is urgently closed. Morning the vernicular railway operates and in the afternoon the cable car. Stunning views. Lovely church. Local artefacts to buy. Local food available at stalls. 2 restaurants as well at the top.
