"BOGOTA: LA CALERA" Colombia Things to Do Tip by swesn

Colombia Things to Do: 240 reviews and 516 photos

The more common hill to visit in Bogota is Monserrate which has a furnicular railway and a cable car to get to the top.

Well, I didn't go there, so I cannot recommend anything.

But I was driven up La Calera, another hill with a great view of night-time Bogotá.

It was fantastic, looking down at the immense city with its twinkling lights. It was very cold though.

There are some snack bars and we ordered some warm 'panela' which is made from sugar cane.
