It was ok but a bit boring. It was empty and still ir Is like 20 minutes up and 30 down. I would not have mind if I had missed it.

What a fun experience! Start as early as you can. It gets hot! And you need to rest once you get to the top. Some excellent restaurants there, and what views! Take the cable car back, the walk down is a bit treacherous and tough...More

Worth the effort, it's a gorgeous view of the city with a pretty church and local markets and restaurants. The funicular to the top is fun. WiFi and cell service is spotty, we couldn't get our Uber app to work, so we took a taxi...More

We stayed in Candelaria area and walked to the base of the mountain. We walked up to buy a ticket and showed a copy of our passports to prove we were over 60. We paid 15,500 each and the regular price was 18,000. The cable...More

This is a place you should visit if you are in Bogota. There is an elevator (wire cabins) and you go up to the mountain where you have a spectacular view of the city of Bogota

Absolutley a must visit when in Bogota. The view of the city is undoubtedly amazing. There are small gift shops if you intend to buy some gifts up there...make sure to try the 'agua ardiente'.

If you are in bogota and have a day or some hours spare this place you need to visit. Not only the breath taking views and the magnificent church but there are also a lot of street vendors and a very nice place to eat....More

The views could be great - it was raining the day we went. The cable/funicular ride up give good views. We took the cable car up and the funicular down to have both experiences. It was good to go because it was in the area,...More

Always check the weather before you take the trip. The views are amazing but if you have rains then it leaves a lot to be desired. The weather fluctuates as well, so please, use layers and bring an umbrella.

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
