Walk up or catch the cable car, if you have a bit of time free in Bogota this is a nice way to see the city. Go for a good sunset or on a clear smog free day.

Very interesting and with great beauty, lots of vegetation and trees. The monorail (carts that takes you to the top) were in very good shape and from the top you can see almost the whole city.

There's a little village with a great view of Bogota at the top of the mountain, which is a great payback after doing the trail to the top.

First off, you must do this, even if you are afraid of heights as I am :) We first got there at 10:00 and saw a long line of guests waiting on a line. Upon getting closer we saw it doesn't open until 12:00. We came back at around 3:30/4:00 and there was no line, no wait so that may... More

This was a very nice way for us to spend one of our Bogota afternoons. We went up in the cable car which is always fun. The view from the top is legendary and we were so lucky to have a gorgeous weather. We took a lot of pictures. The church is also very interesting. It includes the small statue... More

If you're afraid of heights this might not be for you. There are two ways to go up the mountain cable car (more scenic) and train. Once at the top enjoy some very scenic views of Bogota.

Good to walk up and then take the cable tram down. Depends on the weather. Very nice views, gardens at top, go during the day, not very safe at night. Very good restaurant at the top.
