Begin your Lesotho visit from the worthy natural site Sehlabathebe National Park, located in the south eastern region of Lesotho, which is the complex of collections of wonderful rock formations. It is so unique by its massive rock , small lakes, rock art, rock arches and a unique ecosystem of plants, birds and animals, which is not easily accessible by each and every region over there, so you obviously need a 4 wheel drive vehicle. This National park is one of the hidden gems in Lesotho, where you can explore the trout fishing in dams and rivers.(image by zweiblumen)
Next attraction is the unbeatable one among all, that’s the Katse Dam and Botanical Gardens, which is the centerpiece of the Lesotho’s Highlands. There you can find the gorgeous and charming scenery of glistering water crawling in the amidst of greenery mountains. Explore the Katse Dam by involving in to the activities like tour of the dam wall, a boat trip on Katse Dam, a village visit into a village, a wander around Katse Botanical gardens or a couples of hours of horse riding.
Next amazingly popular tourist destination in Lesotho is the Sani Pass, which is a remarkable area for driving, hiking or mountain biking and so on. Each attraction in Lesotho never forget to offer wonderful scenic views, similarly here too you can find sprawling views of the Drakensburg Mountains.
Semonkong in itself is a popular attraction, which is truly spectacular in summer because during that time water flow is high and in winter the water freezes, Obviously this ice formations are stunning and serves as a home to the Semonkong Falls, also known as the Maletsunyane Falls. It is the right spot to explore thrilling activities.
Among the lush greenery wonders you can find a most important national Monument, Thaba-Bosiu or mountain of the night. This mountain is the birthplace of the Basotho nation, which is far one of the most important historical sites in Lesotho. There you must lend your ears to hear a story that shows the local belief that the mountain grows by night into an impossibly tall with the unconquerable mountain fortress. Where you can enjoy the good views of surrounding countryside.
I know why still people reading out this review because i didn’t mention the stunning site with the dinosaur footprints. Yes, a small country has the world’s largest known sites of dinosaur footprints, in spite of this Lesotho is a favorite place for both archaeologists and palaeontologists. It would allow you to follow the dinosaur footprints in over there.
Obviously this review would trigger your exploring mind to move towards the Lesotho.
