Surrounded by the high peaks of the Andes, Bogotá is a high altitude and often high octane capital, steeped in history and culture. The magnificent Museo del Oro, beautiful Iglesia del Carmen, burgeoning culinary and cafe scene and historic La Candelaria district provide the provide the perfect way to immerse yourself into the fabric of the city, before delving in to the city's celebrated nightlife. The star attraction here though is Cerro Monserrate and the chance to soar above the city in a cable car on the way to the summit, where a 17th century pilgrimage church and magnificent views await. Bogotá also serves as an excellent base from which to explore the nearby coffee regions and is within a short train ride of one of only two underground salt cathedrals in the world.
