It was a great experience for a first timer in Colombia. It can be really crowded but the wait was worth it.

It is very challenging, but well worth the exertion for the feeling of accomplishment when you reach the top! A very fit person can do it in 45 minutes; it took me about an hour. Once you reach the top, go all the way through...More

Amidst a very rainy day we decided to get to Monserrate. At the entrance, feeling quite drenched, we decided to buy trash bag ponchos for $4000 col pesos and I’m so glad we did because the rain was pretty much relentless. The gondola that takes...More

On average I would say about 45 minutes. It’s easier on your knees to climb it than it is to walk down due to the steepness and uneven steps. I would recommend taking the cable car or funicular down.

I could not see any though but it goes up and down in every 20-25mins. Funicular is much better to come back. Dont waste your time in queue for cablecar.
