Bogotá From Above
Visiting the Cerro de Monserrate, a white church perched atop one of Bogotá's surrounding mountains, is a rite of passage for any visitor (and plenty of local residents). Many people choose to walk up the (many, many) steps to the summit on weekend mornings, when the path is crowded with sporty pilgrims. Whether you walk or elect to take the terrifying funicular or slightly-less-terrifying cable car, the amazing panoramic view of the city is well worth the effort.

Go up on a sunny day, grab a chocolate santafereño (hot chocolate with cheese) from one of the many food stands nearby and enjoy the view until the chilly wind forces you back inside.
