I have been very lucky that my work has taken me to countries I would most likely have never thought of visiting otherwise. One of these places is Colombia in South America.
It’s been many years since I was there but what I can never forget the beautiful views of Bogota from the Mount Monserrate.
It’s easy to get to the teleférico/funicular station by taxi. I have understood that there is a pathway to get to the top as well but we bought return tickets for the teleférico.
You should try to time your visit on a clear day, as naturally the views will then be at their best. Be prepared that the change in altitude may make you feel dizzy and sometimes even sickly. The top is at 3125 meters, so it’s no wonder if you feel it!
There is also a small church but it’s nothing out of the ordinary. Apparently it’s an important church for the Colombians though and many go there on a pilgrimage.
The view of Bogota is absolutely breathtaking.
Mount Monserrate is definitely something you should do when in Bogota – I would say, it’s a must-see – so prioritize a visit there! If I were to ever go again, I would go in the evening, to see Bogota light up.
Have you ever been to Colombia?
