The Roof of Africa
Not for nothing is this part of Lesotho called the Roof of Africa. The Drakensberg Mountains soar into the clouds. Thabana-Ntlenyana, at 3482m, is the highest peak of Southern Africa. Dramatic mountainscapes offer some of the most spectacular scenery in Lesotho, while the tiny villages, all but cut off from vehicular traffic, display traditional lifestyles unchanged for generations.
Most people arrive in Eastern Lesotho from South Africa via the spectacular Sani Pass, but the route from Caledonspoort is easier, and the main road can be reached from the Monontsa Pass with a 4x4.
