The mountains

The Universidad de los Andes campus winds upwards amongst the beautiful green mountains from which the university takes its name.

As part of the program, you’ll have the chance to take the cable car or funicular railway which depart from close to the university campus up to the church and gardens at the top of Monserrate, 3152 metres above sea level. Once you get there you’ll find stunning views of Bogota below, and you really get a sense of the grand scale of the city. A photo opportunity not to be missed!
