Cable car is great fun to get up. The pilgrimage church is fairly new. The views in all directions are great

Terrified of heights, but the cable car and trains were so safe. Very crowded due to large tour groups, but we were able to experience all available elements with ease.

Fantastic view of the city. Get there early as there is a line for purchasing tickets. I was lucky to see the city on a sunny day. Well worth the effort. Can't go to Bogota without visiting.

Cool views of the city and mountains behind. Fairly long lines waiting for cable car. Bring a jacket, it was quite brisk and windy when we got to the top.

Go early (before ~10am to avoid the line for the ticket and funicular.) On a clear day you can see for miles. For people who live at sea level, you may find you need a little more time to walk at this altitude. No need...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.
