Lesotho Things to Do: 108 reviews and 197 photos

The views from the summit of Thaba-Bosiu or "mountain by night'' are fantastic.
You see the surrounding mountains chains, the plains with some villages and the Qiloane pinnacle, This pinnacle is the symbol of Lesotho and has given the inspiration for the Basotho hat.
The guide showed us some remains, wells and a meeting place. There was not much to see at these places, so you need a lot of imagination and an enthusiastic explaining guide like we had.
The grave yard of the royal family is the most interesting sight of Thaba-Bosiu. The whole royal family is buried here. The guide showed us the grave yard and explained extensivily nearly every grave of Moshoeshoe's family.
