Monserete is a great place to visit if you have a full afternoon in bogota. It is fairly inexpensive to ride the lift up the mountain. Once your up there are incredible views with a church and lot as of shopping. Stay away from the restaurants. VERY EXPENSIVE... Better just to bring food or cvg o somewhere close by. Lots of options. If your adventouous. Buy a bag of Big As Ants at the Base of the mountain. These are a snack like spicy potato chips. GOOD LUCK...

Cable car is great fun to get up. The pilgrimage church is fairly new. The views in all directions are great

This is one of those attractions that is worth going to. It is easy to get to and inexpensive. I recommend going to the restaurant for lunch or dinner while overlooking the view of the city. I went for lunch but a few people I spoke with said that the view at night is just as breath taking.

Old church, stations of the cross, tourist knickknacks, you can definitely get your Jesus on. Even if you are not religious, it's worth going for the view of the city from the mountaintop.

They do different things at different times of the year. All the Christmas lights were up when we visited.

Terrified of heights, but the cable car and trains were so safe. Very crowded due to large tour groups, but we were able to experience all available elements with ease.

Fantastic view of the city. Get there early as there is a line for purchasing tickets. I was lucky to see the city on a sunny day. Well worth the effort. Can't go to Bogota without visiting.

We visited on a Sunday morning which we knew would be busy. The arrival area our Uber dropped us off at was particularly heaving so we decided to start walking rather than looking at the cable car or train options.
I know others will call this out but it is a long way to walk up. It is manageable, but it is a long way with lots of steps, don’t be fooled.
My partner and I are mid 30’s and admittedly don’t exercise much but remain in decent shape. The hike required a good amount of effort to get up. Worth every ounce of the effort I must admit. I think the signs call out it is 2,350M - from 1,900 metres it levels out for the last bit but beforehand it is pretty much relentless steps up the mountain.
The view at the top is great and some lovely shops and places to regain the calories you burn off from the hike.
We opted for the cable car return which took 45 mins or so to get, in hindsight I think we would have walked back down again.

Cool views of the city and mountains behind. Fairly long lines waiting for cable car. Bring a jacket, it was quite brisk and windy when we got to the top.

Go early (before ~10am to avoid the line for the ticket and funicular.)

On a clear day you can see for miles. For people who live at sea level, you may find you need a little more time to walk at this altitude.

No need to spend a lotta time, take in the view and move on to other sites. It’s worth the trip.
