Walk up to the funicular station from the downtown or take a taxi. The view on the city and surrounding mountains is fantastic and brings a new experience... You may want to use funicular for the trip up and cable car going back. It is a little market with local food and a restaurant up there so you can combine... More

Take the Funicular one way (up or down) and the cable car the other way! Gorgeous views, but the elevation and hills can make it a bit of a challenging visit.

I'm not sure that Day 1 of arrival in Bogota (from a near sea-level home in the US) was the best to go to the top of Mount Monserrate, but we did and we survived and we enjoyed it! We walked up to the base of the tram from the Candeleria area. The hardest part of the walk was the... More

Monserrate is OK and the view is good but not as good as several other similar places in other South American cities, such as Medellin. The funicular railway ride up is nice. It's 9,000 COP each, each way. There's also a cable car that can take you up there, but we didn't take it, so can't comment. At the the... More

Monserrate offers an amazing view of the city, we loved the cable car ride an the view of the city during the sunset. Wonderful place to visit in downtown area, however the service was bad,they charge for the use of dirty restrooms, also the restrooms attendants were rude and even said bad words to us in Spanish, I hope management...

High above Bogotá (and I do mean high, at over 10,000 feet above sea level) and away from the traffic you will find panoramic views of the city alongside an iconic Colombian pilgrimage site. My favorite part of the church is actually the "penitent's chapel" behind the main sanctuary. It has beautiful stained glass which depicts both the sobering reality... More

Definitely worth a visit. We were really lucky to have a clear dry day. Also look out for various breeds of hummingbirds.

I enjoyed going up to the top of Monserrate last week in Bogota. The funicular ride provided a great view of the city and was affordable. The area at the top is quite expansive, but doesn't offer much. It was just enjoyable to stand up against the edge of the viewing area and enjoy the panoramic views of the city.... More

This was my first time in Bogotá, and I only had 12 hours to spend in the city. Someone recommended this spot to me, and I wasn't disappointed. I went early cloudless morning, and I got to see a spectacular view of the city. I highly recommend anyone to go this place, and you will be rewarded with a great... More
