Just take a cab to the funicular and after a 5 minutes ride you are at 3,150 meters and have a great view over Bogota 500 meters below. Behind the church there are some souvenir shops and after passing these there are some street-food stalls.

Fantastic view of the city! There are also restaurants and souvenir shops at the top. I was told that hiking to the top can be dangerous, so beware!

An absolutely stunning vista which gives a whole new perspective to this densely packed urban metropolis. Easy to access wth a short taxi and a very enjoyable funicular ride to the summit. A must do in Bogota!

Mount Monserrate was incredible! I absolutely love nature and the outdoors and this only intensified my curiosity and interest. Excellent and safe service. I mention safe since you're so high up in altitude. Be sure to drink lots of water and have some chocolate on...More

This was my favorite place in Bogota! I loved the funicular and the walk to the top. We had coca tea in the little shop area above the church. Beautiful view of the city! My favorite memory!

Really didn't feel unsafe at all. Plus in order to access Montserrate you have to pay so not everyone can go.
