Monserrate, a beautiful view of Bogota (COLOMBIA)

If you want to see the best view of  Bogota, you have to go to  Monserrate. Nice place to go & have a wonderful view of the city, got there on the cable car, also there’s an option to go by funicular (train) and for those inclined to extreme exercise you could get on the trail & climb to the top, either one of those will be an unforgettable experience.

” Do arrive a bit early on a clear day as the lines for the funicular can get a bit long, however, they do move fairly fast. Once on top you can spend as long or as short as you like. We had an early lunch at one of the restaurants which offered great food and breathtaking views. Depending on the day and time, you can attend mass, one was happening during my visit and there were many people in attendance. Do walk around the top of the mountain for some spectacular views of Bogota as it spreads in front of you. The air up there is clean and fresh and the visit is just memorable.

There’s a beautiful Catholic Church & a recreaction of Christ’s march to the Calvary (Viacrucis), there’re also a few  kiosks with local crafts, religious objects, and  prices vary depending on what u got in mind, but for the most part is a trip that will barely make a dent on your budget & will give u plenty of photo opportunities & a trip to remember.

This is definitely worth the trip up the sky lift to take in the amazing views of the city! But be prepared to be short of breath due to the altitude (even if you think you are in shape). But don’t let that stop you from visiting the top of this amazing mountain! if you are going to climb it on foot is recomended to go early with daylight. Once at the top, you will have the most incredible view of the city, you will see everything, even the futbol stadium! The church is beautiful, and there are vendors of artesian crafts and food. Although it of course is overpriced, buy souvenirs elsewhere. DEFINITELY a must do when in Bogota!”
