Bogota is the capital of Colombia and one of the largest cities in South America, with a metro population of about 10 million.  In this drone video, contributor Worldmoments gives us an aerial guided tour of this metropolis, which was founded in the 16th century by Spanish conquistadors.  The city sits on a plateau within the Andes Mountains system.  Highlights of the video include footage of La Candelaria, La Candelaria, El Chorro de Quevedo, and Centro Cultural García Marquez.

One of Colombia's most iconic views is from the Fallen Lord Church atop Mount Monserrate, a 3.1k meter (10.3k ft) peak which overlooks the great capital city of Bogota in the central part of the country.  The mountain itself was considered sacred land going to pre-Columbus times.  La.drones used a DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone to create this amazing video of Bogota, with an epic opening shot from atop the mountain.

The Biggest Mural in Bogotá

Bogotá, Colombia is one of the largest cities in South America, and can also make a good claim to being the street art capital of the continent.  One of the biggest murals in the city is in the neighborhood of Los Puentes where its inhabitants turned the walls of their houses into a giant work of art.  They painted all their houses and stairways to create the biggest mural in the entire city!  See this amazing artwork built by this community in this stunning aerial footage by top contributor and drone pilot la.drones.

FabianBPhoto was hired to create an aerial tour of the recently revitalized Chorro de Quevado neighborhood of Bogotá, Colombia.  The neighborhood is believed (by some) to be the site where modern day Bogotá was founded.  It's situated in the La Candelaria district, to the southeast of the more modern parts of the city.  With its own unique set of colors, the square blends in beautifully with the surrounding parts of the city, one of the world's most colorful.

It would be hard to overstate the importance of the Monserrate Mountain to the Colombian capital city of Bogotá.  Located south of the city center, the mountain has a peak elevation of 3.15k meters (about 10.35k ft.) above sea level, roughly 500 meters (around 1.65k ft.) above the city's base elevation.  Virtually the entire city is visible from the peak on clear days.  Contributor Sky Zoom created this beautiful aerial view of Monserrate, which is topped by the magnificent Fallen Lord Church.  

Christmas in Snowy Bogotá

Cold and cheerful Christmas in Bogota

Rodrigosv

The Colombian capital city of Bogotá has a surprisingly temperate climate given its location so close to the equator.  The reason, quite simply, is elevation.  Situated in a plateau in the Andes Mountains region, this metropolis has a base elevation of 2.65k meters (just under 8.7k ft.) above sea level.  While that's not quite as high as Quito or La Paz, it's high enough to produce snow in the winter months.  Exhibit A is this amazing drone video from Rodrigosv, showing a snowy Bogotá at Christmastime.
