Definitely worth the tram ride to the top. The view leaves one breathless. We were fortunate to go on a very clear and sunny day. Restaurants and cafes at the top to relax & recharge.

Unprecedented view of Columbia. Watch the sunset from the top of the mountain and then watch the city sparkle at night.

We went to the Mount Monseratte with the 'fenicular' (train to the top of the mountain). The ride to the top is nice and so is the view from the top. However, the church is nothing special.

It's not only the great view but also you can visit some nice buildings in the top and buy some souvenirs. The way up is as well as good, better on the telepheric that makes less noise than the funicular and has better view both...More

Views are best in Bogota and the whole place is a jewel to visit. The tram was not operating but the cable car did not disappoint. Definitely worth the visit.

A bit pricey to go up but it's a great view and there's actually a lot of places to walk around up there... See the church, stations of the cross, and there's several restaurants and causal cafes. Worth it!

Hello Falah! Best way to go up, it is the cable car. Just ask the taxi to take you until Mont Serrat entrance. They know where it is. You can ask for an Uber. It is totally safe in Colombia. Also, you always can do a... More

Yes, there are people working there who will offer you a taxi as soon as you get down. It's a bit overpriced as you don't have another option to get back

Sorry for the delay - I went up by cable car; took a taxi to the cable car from hotel. It is possible to walk up but I'm reluctant to recommend this based upon the exhaustion faced by some of the locals who seem to do this... More
