Beautiful views of the city, it's a hike going up but once you get there you'll have the best vantage view of the whole city.

Unfortunately we visited in high season and as it was just after New year the queues were about an hour long. Be prepared for the long lines and take appropriate clothing as it was scorching the day we went. Annoyingly, once we got to the ticket office we then had to queue all over again for the actual funicular up... More

Since we stayed in La Candelaria we had to visit Mount Monserrate. We went there just before noon on a sunny day and few clouds made the pictures look gorgeous without blocking any view. Very easy place to get to and inexpensive. Elevation of 3,170 meters. Surely, Mount Monserrate made the trip extra special and memorable.

We went up around 5pm, which was great. We skipped the line and were able to view the sunset. We went during Las Novenas, the 9 days before Christmas. There were plenty of lights up and they even had fireworks! We went to the little shops up the hill and we found some great gifts. During our trip, we also... More

We went up at around 5pm, which I reccomend. That way you can see the sun going down and you have views of the city during the day and at night.

Is one of the best places in Bogotá. The vew of the city is incredible, very easy to go there, you can buy some souveniers and eat local food. Is a nice place to spend one day in Bogotá.

We stopped here during an 8 hour layover the day after New Year's and it was spectacularly decked out for Christmas with lights, animated figures, and plenty of music. The funicular provides a nice view of the city on your way up and the wait (~10 minutes) is a lot less than the tram (~30 minutes) when you are ready... More

We went on a cloudy day and the views were still spectacular. Make sure to bring a sweater or a jacket as it's way colder than further down.
