You will ascend almost 2,000 ft higher than Bogotá and the summit of Monserrate. For this you'll have the choice of either the teleferico (aerial tramway) or the funicular to the top, where you’ll have time to explore the artisan markets, visit a beautiful 17th century monastery and enjoy some of the most spectacular panoramic views of Bogota. You’ll learn how this mountain was sacred to the indigenous Muiscas people for hundreds of years, how during the June solstice, the sun rises exactly behind Monserrate and how hundreds of pilgrims journey to this destination every year
