I was taken aback by the wonderful view of the city and its surrounding mountains. The train and cable are really cool, while at the same time providing different angles for pictures. There are restaurants there, but they are very expensive. Overall, I would recommend!

Amazing view of the bogota city. If you love hiking, you can up and down but it is not for beginners. You can take the teleferico to go up and walk back (30 minutes).

It was really beautiful. We took the funicular up to the top where you got an excellent view of Bogota. We had a great time going through the markets and took pictures of the city from the top. This is a religious site that is incredibly beautiful.

I' try to visit during the non-working day. Waiting line was too long, with more than two hours waiting to go to gondola. Hiking was not for my 105 kilos to take them up to hill.

We waited almost an hour to take the car up the mountain, but it was definitely worth the wait. The view was gorgeous, you can see the entire city. Would definitely recommend making this part of your itinerary!

Feel like doing some hiking? This is a nice place to do so. Mount Monserrate stands high above the city of Bogota and will give those who dare climb it a really superb view of the city.
