We took the funicular way up the mountain and through a tunnel to the peak overlooking the City. Breathtaking views, especially at sunset

Fun to take the funicular up the mountain. Very organized. View was great. Lots of vendors on top to sell you snacks and souvenirs. Would not recommend walking up or down the mountain. The trail was not pretty. Only do the trail if you want...More

I went to visit Monserrate on the Christmas Eve. Full of holiday illumination and decoration which made the visit a little festive. I did not realize how high in altitude the cit of Bogota was until I started to walk to the cable car ticket...More

A must to visit. The experience of riding the finnicular is incredible and the views are fabulous from the top (20,000 Pesos). Have a cup of Cocoa Leaf Tea (4,200 Pesos) at the Cafe Santa Clara and enjoy the views!

Monserrate is probably a must-see Bogota tourist attraction. Far above the city, it gives an essential perspective of this large and vibrant city.

If you go to Bogota dont miss this excellent experience. We rode the funicular to the top late afternoon and enjoyed spectacular views if the city both before and after sunset.

Must be the best views in Bogota. Well organised cable car and a great ride to the top. Restaurants and shops at the top.

If you only go to one place in Bogota, make it Monserrate. It has the most amazing view of the city, and it's a beautiful location. Take one transport up, and the other down. Have lunch (ajiaco!) at Casa Santaclara. You won't be disappointed!

Great views but go when sunny. Altitude is over 10,000 feet so take it easy up there, especially if your not used to the Bogota altitude.

Ride the funicular railway to the top - or walk, if you can. (The cable car skyway is under maintenance). At the top there could be fantastic views but for the haze. Continueing from the station, one passes sculptural conceptions of each of the stations...More

I could not see any though but it goes up and down in every 20-25mins. Funicular is much better to come back. Dont waste your time in queue for cablecar.

Hi Lisa and thanks for your question. I assume so as our guide for the day already had our tickets when he picked us up at the hotel. We booked a guided half-day tour with Impulse Travel. Was really worth the money. John

Hello Falah! Best way to go up, it is the cable car. Just ask the taxi to take you until Mont Serrat entrance. They know where it is. You can ask for an Uber. It is totally safe in Colombia. Also, you always can do a... More
