Visiting Cristo Rey was interesting. The only thing like it is in Brazil. If you go once, you don't need to go again. At the base of the gigantic statue is a small eatery. The view of the city is amazing. Know that once you park there is a steep driveway. I had a bad knee and found it difficult.

A must see!

I read previous reviews about Cristo Rey, with a particular interest in whether or not it could be hiked. Well, it can be hiked, but its its not for the faint-hearted. Its intense, if not gruelling and some areas leave you dangerously exposed to vehicles in blind areas (switcback turns), and takes about an hour and a half to summit from the city. There are cars that can take you down the hill, don't pay more than 30,000 pesos.

With that said, I highly recommend it as it provides some breathtaking views that would be briefly witnessed by car.

Just ok

Just ok really and pretty much the only sightseeing trip in Cali.
We went early in the morning and the taxi that brought us up waited in the car park as there were none at the top.

Worthwhile visit

This is a good way to spend a couple hours in Cali. The sights are fantastic and the monument is impressive as well. If walking is difficult it might be a little bit of a challenge to get to the top.

Impressive Monument and Awesome View
Jan 2020
This is one of the main landmarks of Cali. It is a very impressive moument only 12 mts shorter than the one in Rio de Janeiro. The city view is spectacular. One must have your own transportation to be able to get back to the city.

Greaet view of Cali
Jan 2020
As part of the Cali City Tour, we visited this and had a wonderful view of the city. Just make sure you can walk up a somewhat steep road, as cars are not allowed to go up the final way. I was definitely winded after the climb.

Make sure you have your ride down ready

Took an Uber here and it was great. The statue is impressive, and the view over the city is nice (maybe somewhat misty..). We didn’t plan this very well and when it was time to head down the only taxi available wanted to charge us triple of what we paid the Uber to get there. As we started walking we tried to order a new Uber, but no one would make the trip to pick us up so we ended up walking the whole way down. This took us a good 1,5 hours and it is not a nice walk. The road is everything but wide and there are some really sharp turns making it difficult for drivers to see you.

What a vantage point you get from here! Try to go earlier in the morning so you can avoid the crowds. If it is a clear day the vantage points are mesmerizing.

Great views

This is Cali´s challenge to Rio de Janeiro´s Cristo Redentor and it serves a similar purpose: a gigantic status of Christ and a fabulous view of the valley. No wonder it is always full of tourists at every time of the year.

Gorgeous view from the mountain top of Cali!

Great experience! The statue is huge! The views are amazing of Cali! We took an Uber and did not have him wait for us. There was no reception to get a return car, but there is a taxi stand nearby. There is also food available and restrooms for a charge.
