I walked up the stairs and felt always safe. There is police everywhere (it was during the week), a lot of tourists and local who use the walk as sports activity. The view is phenomenous and it‘s indeed physically demanding (if you are not a...More

Regular stop for many tourists, the best views from the city can be seen here. You can climb or take the lift. Even if not up for the religious and cultural approach is worth visiting. Little restaurants and cafes up there and a little local...More

I was impressed that so many Colombians of all ages were doing this walk! In the US., everyone would take the funicular. Well maintained infrastructure and lots of vendors along the way selling fruit, drinks, etc. Highly recommended!

It has to be done really. The steps up were uneven and never ending. Refreshment sellers at frequent intervals. Went on a bank holiday and the steps were heaving with folk, which added to the atmosphere. Great views and numerous eateries at the top

To visit, it's cheap only 22,000 COP to take a cable car. Now if you have nothing to do or lines are small it's worth it. Or if you like hiking and you hike I'll give it 4/5. Problem becomes if you go on a...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
