Lesotho is the highest country in the world! And I bet you thought it was Nepal!
Lesotho has the highest low point of any country in the World (1400 meters/4593 feet) and is the only country to be entirely above 1000 meters (3281 feet) high. So where is it? The Kingdom of Lesotho is a small, mountainous country in southern Africa. In fact it is surrounded by the country of South Africa. It is the only place you will see Africans not only prepared for snow, but actually receiving it. The people are super friendly and it is well worth a visit. You can see at least of the country by car in a day.

Address: Lesotho, Africa
