We got to the teleferico around 3:30pm on a Saturday and the lineup was big.
We were told it was too late to get on (they close at 6 they said).
We shared a taxi with another couple and it was a crazy race up the hill. I had to tell the guy to slow down because we weren't ready to die yet and so he did.
Besides that bit of nightmare, the Cristo was amazing.

There was quite a crowd up there, yet we managed to get a few pictures without too much waiting.

The 360* view was majestic and the statue was mesmerizing, much better then what you see on pictures.

The teleferico had quite a lineup going down as well, so we decided to just walk down the 2000 steps.

We absolutely recommend this place as a must see while in Cochabamba and if you enjoy a good leg workout, then be sure to take the stairs all the way up.

The new improvements around El Cristo are quite lovely. Since my last visit three years ago, new observation decks have been added around the base of El Cristo. The observation decks provide a nice photo-op and views of the city.

Definitely worth a visit. I have taken the trams up and driven; both are great.

The statue is impressive, but the view of Cochabamba and surrounding area is amazing! We took a taxi up to the top. Really breathtaking! I had no idea how big the city and you can see how the city is right in the middle of the mountains. The road up to the top is made out of rocks which feels like going over cobblestones, so it could bother some people. We were glad we went. I was told not to hike up or to go after dark, so I will pass that along as well.

I'd say it's worth the visit on a clear day. We got nice pics of the city. The teleférico is not that expensive, around 10 bolivianos going up and down. It's recommended to take the teleférico rather than the steps, since tourists have been robbed while walking up/down.

I currently live in Cochabamba and I often see tourists who have cameras hanging on their necks. Please don't do that here, it draws unnecessary attention. Although it's relatively safe to walk around in the daylight in Cochabamba, it's wise to avoid any kind of display of your wealth. Don't wear expensive looking jewelry or clothes and keep a tight grip of your purse/wallet at all times and you'll be just fine. Enjoy your visits in Cochabamba!

You have an option to get up there by foot (which I assume would be very tiring and would take something like 20-30 minutes) or by teleferico. The view up there on the hill is quite good and it's a good place to relax for an hour and view the mountains and city.

We went up to the look out and enjoyed nice views of the city. I also visited the dry area next to the road just before you get to the Christ, this area has some interesting native cacti. Saw 6 or so cacti growing in the shrubby vegetation. I went with a small group as locals warned us not to go there alone due to the gangs that have robbed people in this area in the past. Apparently the steps (you can take steps and walk to the Christ) area is not safe unles you go in a good size group. We went via the road with a taxi and road is less problematic, but nevertheless our local friends kept an eye on the surroundings just in case.

The view is ok but I would not make a special trip there just for the view given all the warnings we received (from locals) about the robberies in that area. One of our local friends who was doing research studying the cacti in the area below the Christ was robbed there a few years ago. She was with 3 other students and while nothing bad happened to them, their cameras and money was taken from them. The situation and possible dangers of visiting the Christ appears to be common knowledge among the locals, it has been happening for a while and while it does not happen to every body that goes there the possibility it may happen to anyone visiting the area are real. Very sad that the authorities appear unable to do anything about it. Forgot to mention the visible amount of trash we saw in the vegetation area below the Christ.

Christo de la Concordia is ALWAYS a MUST SEE!!!!! Spectacular views of the city of Cochabamba from all different angles. If you are amenable to actually entering and walking up the stairs of El Christo you should definitely inquire about the hours as the internal staircase is generally closed!

We took a taxi up as it was Monday and the cable car was closed. We walked back down and as it was 28 degrees celsius we where happy we didn't walk up. The view of Cochabamba is stunning and it is well worth a visit either if you walk up all the stairs, take the cable car or do as we do, take a taxi.

El Cristo is an essential part of any Cochabamba tour because it gives a great overview look of the whole city and the stunning mountains surrounding it. Even during an unusual 2 hours of drizzle, the views were spectacular. If it's overcast, take a jacket, as it can be windy at the top.

We took the gondola up and down because of rain, but my friend who lives in Cochabamba says the best way to do it would be to walk up (though take water because it is a tiring walk!) and gondola down. The gondola was small (6 people per car), and they seem to wait until it's at least 3/4 full at the bottom before they run it...though it might have been a timetable that we just weren't paying attention to! Prices were super reasonable by Western standards.
