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.

If this is the first time in Cochabamba, the traveler must climb the Cristo de la Concordia. The view of the city is wonderful and the statue is a majestic work of art. You can hop in a taxi or take the funicular. My only complaint is that they close early in the afternoon and that restricts the opportunity to visit this place.

What a way to see the city! You can see the Cristo from practically everywhere in Cochabamba. We didn't walk much at all. We drove straight to the top, and walked a few stairs. I liked it much more than I though I would. 4 meters higher than the one in Brazil. A must see if you are in the area.

It's a fun tourist attraction to do when in Cochabamba. We take lots of visitors there every year. It's kind of a 'must see'. Climbing the stairs can be dangerous as in you could be robbed. We've had many friends robbed on their way up or down. The tram is a fun way to go, but it isn't open everyday. We usually drive up. There are great views of the city and my kids love to climb up inside the Cristo. Remember though safety standard are not the same as they are in the USA. :)
