The wait can be a bit long, but the cable car trip is fast and fun. Views from the top are fantastic of the city and forested hills. Church is very nice, and then loads of souvenir shops to be had. Great afternoon excursion.

The day I went only the funicular was working and not the train. I believe a round trip ticket was 19,000 Colombian Pesos. You wait in line to go up and they do fill each car but it doesn't take too long to get up....More

I went with my friends, during our holidays, and this place is a good spot for great pictures with the city. The church in the top is beautiful, very simple, but you can go to the mass.

Famous for its views, and for the ascent by modernised antique funicular or cable car. I was impressed by the dense gardens with varied vegetation: it was a very pleasant place around which to stroll. I was there in the morning before either restaurant was...More

We ascended Mount Monserrate by funicular in the morning and were rewarded by a view all across Bogota, as well as the historical church

We visited Monserrate on a Sunday, which is a very busy day at the mountain. There are many vendors selling food, drinks and souvenirs at the bottom and also much to buy at the top near the church. We were a family of 4, my...More

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

Yes, there are people working there who will offer you a taxi as soon as you get down. It's a bit overpriced as you don't have another option to get back

Sorry for the delay - I went up by cable car; took a taxi to the cable car from hotel. It is possible to walk up but I'm reluctant to recommend this based upon the exhaustion faced by some of the locals who seem to do this... More
