We stopped here during an 8 hour layover the day after New Year's and it was spectacularly decked out for Christmas with lights, animated figures, and plenty of music. The funicular provides a nice view of the city on your way up and the wait (~10 minutes) is a lot less than the tram (~30 minutes) when you are ready... More

We went on a cloudy day and the views were still spectacular. Make sure to bring a sweater or a jacket as it's way colder than further down.

Went up by train and had to stand in line for quite a while. You can go there by train or by funicular/cable car, but the latter seems to start its operation later on and doesn't go on a regular basis. We visited the church during the morning but it seems to be nicer to visit at sunset or at... More

We paid 18000 COP per person which was a little too pricy for what you get. It's definitely beautiful but for budget travelers (like us who were traveling South America for 4 months) - the price may be a little steep.

Very easy and cheap way to have a great view of the city as well as learn more about Colombian culture. For two people we paid about $18 for a round-trip ticket up and down the mountain via cable car. We spent about an hour on the mountain walking around and exploring the different features offered on the mountain. Very... More

Without visiting this place, you did not visit Bogota. Take a morning the time to visit this mountain. A morning? 2 hours is enough! You go up with an elevator, enjoy the view and the little street with some shops. Rest a bit and go back. The view shows really how big the city is.

Vale pela vista. Filas demoradas para subir até o top. Worth the view. The queues take time to climb the mountain

Go up e all in the morning to avoid queues. 1 the walking path is urgently closed. Morning the vernicular railway operates and in the afternoon the cable car. Stunning views. Lovely church. Local artefacts to buy. Local food available at stalls. 2 restaurants as well at the top.
