Travel to the top of this impressive mountain for amazing views of Bogota.

The lush green mountains that dominate Bogota’s skyline are just one of the things that make it such a beautiful city. Located close to the Candelaria, here you can take a cable car or funicular railway to the church and gardens at the top of Monserrate, 3152 metres above sea level. If you’re feeling very energetic, during the day you can even walk up the top, and at the weekends you’ll find many Colombians trekking the steps as a pilgrimage.

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!
