It is a long way to Monserrate but it is definitely worth it: beautiful view. Once you get on the top, there's also good infrastructure and a nice handicraft market.

The view is wonderful will be a bit chilly heavier clothing is advised not a wide variety of food there is a small restaurant but it is closed on Sundays as most smaller shops in the city. Must see. The ride up is not for the faint of heart.

The place have a very nace and all view of bogota, I was there with some friends and family, the experience was good, so many shops where you can buy a tradicional staff and souvenir, also I try the Coca tea, and other typical deserts from the region. - the Mass was good, spiritual moment for all participants.

Nice view of Bogotá, an impressive church, and a pleasant park. Lots of interesting birds if you take the time to look for them. There is fairly limited seating on top, and very few veg/vegan options for food, so be prepared.

Must visit - amazing view of the city. Went as soon as it opened on a Friday, there were no lines. The main restaurants open at noon so those looking for a drink/lunch with a view should taken that in consideration.

A must-see place to go when in Bogota. Once up there, in a clear day you may see all the extension of the city. There's a church devotet to El Señor Caido, and 2 restaurants. For a local experience, I had lunch at one of the stalls at the end of the souvenir area. Good and affordable food. For a... More

If there was a 3.5 star rating for good (vs 4 for very good) then I'd score it with a half mark. The trip is well worth it for the 18.000 COP price (less than £5). We went in the afternoon when the cable car is running, the vehicular railway runs in the morning. There is a small market at... More

I took the funicular (steep railway) up at about 10am, maybe a little earlier, and the cable car down when it opened at 12. COP18,000 round trip on a Tuesday morning. The walkway at the top has a smooth pathway at the side so you *could* get a wheelchair up it if you're determined but it's very steep. The view... More
