Well worth the walk up the hill

One you get to the Funicular/Gondola it is easy going after the trek up the hill! Queue was long but moved quickly. It was so worthwhile as the views and place itself were superb.

The sun in the afternoon is not good for photos. It's a great wat to get an idea of how big Bogota really is! Not much else to do at the top but buy souvenirs, so I don't feel it was worth the money.

Monserrate offers an unobstructed majestic view of the city which is best seen as the sun sets. A must see when visiting Bogota!

When I visited the walking path was closed, so we were forced to go up with the teleferico which costed a bit. The view from the top is nice as you can admire the vastly of the city of Bogota, but the attraction is a bit overrated so I still recommend to go but do not expect much, one or... More

Went there for mass at the church. Getting there required long waits, which caused me to be irritated by the time I actually made it up there. Not many restaurants, other than the official establishment and several street vendors. Take an umbrella because you never know what you are going to get in Bogota.

A monastery with a beautiful church located at the highest point of Bogota with a beautiful view of the city on clear days.

We went on a sunday so it was a bit crowded with pious locals who wanted to go to mass, we had to queue a bit to get the funicular but it was fine. You get to 3200m so you can feel a bit dizzy at first but we took it slowly and it was fine in the end. The... More

We went up as the sun was going down. The city view is breathtaking at night. It's definitely worth the money. As you exit the funicular, there is a guy who can get you a taxi, since its not safe to catch one on the street. Mount Monserrate and Bogota Bike Tour were my personal favorites in Bogota.

Here You get a very good view over bogota. The buildings on the mountain is Also very nice, specially the church. Here comes many people to pray for great wishes or to thank god for the miracles that have happened them. One can get a little dizzy because it is so very high up though.

The trip up in the cable car was quick and crowded. There are a lot of little tourist shop but nothing special.The view of the city is really wonderful but all in all not really worth the effort to get there.
