Treasure House of History
The region south of Maseru is full of local history and has many major sites that played an important part in creating the heritage of Lesotho. This is also great pony trekking country.
The area is easily accessible from Maseru, or directly from South Africa via Van Rooyens Gate or any of the nearby border posts.
The small, but engaging village of Morija is the centre of the vibrant interaction between Sotho culture and the west. It is 45 km south of Maseru and deep in the Caledon valley.
The Maletsunyane Falls is the highest waterfall in Southern Africa, falling 196 metres in a single drop. The village of Semonkong is nestled on the banks of the Maletsunyane river.
The town of Quthing, also called Moyeni, is the southernmost town in the country. There are two of the most important sets of dinosaur footprints in the region. There is a large panel of Bushman paintings at Qomoqomong.
This district provides a very scenic corridor for motorists en route between Maseru and Quthing District. This is a bustling town with well-stocked shops. Whether you’re heading north or south, this is a good place to replenish your supplies.
This substantial reeded lake and wetlands area is an important wildlife habitat (particularly for waterbirds), and is a wonderful picnic spot for walkers and pony-trekkers.
