Highlights from your trip

Maseru — 3 nights

Founded in 1869 by the British, Lesotho's main city--Maseru--lies on the border with South Africa on a plateau surrounded by red hills.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Maseru: Morija Museum & Archives (in Morija) and Gates of Paradise Pass (in Malealea). There's still lots to do: see human ingenuity at work at Katse Dam, take in the awesome beauty at Maluti Mountains, shop like a local with Lesotho Co-operative Handicrafts, and browse the different shops at Pioneer Mall.

Kingdom in the Sky
Mountainous Lesotho lends itself well to an adventurous holiday itinerary. Entirely located above 1,000 m (3,280 ft) in elevation, the country enjoys a cool climate with around 300 days of sunshine each year. Explorations of the mountains form the backbone of many Lesotho holidays. Remote villages located way up in the highlands, only accessible on foot or by horseback, offer a glimpse into the country's authentic culture with their lively markets, traditional eateries, and musical traditions.
