* <see name="Cerro de Monserrate" alt="" address="" directions="" phone="" url="" hours="" price="8,200 one way, 14,000 COP round trip (9,000 COP on Sundays)" lat="" long="" email="" fax="">A true beautiful panoramic view of the city is only a funicular or transferico ride away. You can take the Funicular up and Transferico down, or vice versa.  You have the option to buying one way tickets, too.  You will have the most amazing views and also enjoy Colombian or French food in the two full-service restaurants at the top.  There are also souvenir stalls on the weekends.  Remember to bring a warm coat, because it is chilly up there. On Sunday is a very crowded place, so be ready to get into a long line. Locals have their group wait in line to get on the funicular while someone else queues op to buy the tickets at the same time. It feels a bit like skipping the line, but everybody does it so you might as well do it too.  It is very important to also wear sunscreen and hat because at such a high altitude, you will burn very easily even if it is "cloudy". This is especially true if you are going around noon.  You can also hike up the stone-set path up Monserrate like the locals do without any additional costs.  It takes approximately 1-1.5 hours up and approximately 45 minutes down.  Remember to allot more time if you are not accustomed to being 2 miles above sea level. There have been reports of muggings, so beware when you do the climb and if you can, go at weekends when the way is much more crowded and police officers are posted every hundred meters or so. The beginning of the way up to Monserrate can be found near Los Andes university. The path up the mountain has been closed for some time (May 2016 it was closed) but might re-open, check to avoid surprises. Transmilenio station Las Aguas is conveniently located.</see>
