From my hostel in Candelaria it was a short walk to the Funicular station (the cable car goes from the same place, but wasn't running that day). The ride up provided great views and the steeply sloping tunnel near the top must have been quite a feat of engineering when it was built. The stations were nice looking buildings. The... More

We went up on a Sunday and were warned it could be very busy. But it wasn't too bad. We had a short queue for the funicular going up but not too bad and hardly any queue for the cable car down. Unfortunately it was cloudy so we didn't get clear views from the top but the cloud did lift... More

Colombian tradition! And if you have the physical conditioning take the stairs. You'll find excellent food and an unforgettable experience

Travelling up bu funicular up from Bogota at 2600m and then ending up at nearly 3000m was just amazing!! Just the walk up the hill to the church and the view took your breath away. Amazing views and there are even some restaurants up there as well

A beautiful stroll up a pedestrian street with a waterfall running down it lined with stalls, then a lovely ride up on a funicular to the cathedral and wonderful views of Bogota. Make sure you brave the bevvy of trinket stands to see the fantastic restaurants beyond, some of the best street food I saw. Or the more formal Santa... More

Mount Monserrate its a must while travelling in Bogotá. It is about a forty five minutes ride from the center and the the view of the city its marvelous. You can go up with cable car or the funicular. The small church is pritty and so is the restaurant.

Amazing view from top. The funicukar railway is a wonder in its own. The church is extremely silent and peaceful. One should prefer to visit during the morning hours as one can see the sun rise over the city but ensure that it is not cloudy
