One of the things that made an impression on me while visiting Lesotho is the breathtaking scenery. With magnificent golden mountain ranges, interspersed with deep valleys, it is most certainly a landscape that will captivate you. I’ve had the opportunity to visit Lesotho various times while travelling in South Africa, during different seasons, and every time the beautiful scenery mesmerises me. I’ve had cold weather, rain, hail, snow, wind, thunderstorms as well as nice sunny days. And I can tell you, no matter what temperature, no matter what weather, it’s still spectacular. It’s also a country with amazing people who are very friendly, very welcoming and very interested in the people visiting their beautiful homeland. The Basotho people come out and wave when you pass by, especially the children. I’m glad I had the chance to visit the country multiple times, to drive over challenging roads, meet interesting people, experienced horse riding, saw some great Bushman rock art and observed some great sunsets over the mountains.
Lesotho – A mountain kingdom in the sky
From an aspiring photographers point of view, the kingdom of Lesotho is very thankful. The people, nature, landscapes, landmarks and animals are inspiring subjects for any camera lens. Sometimes pictures can say more than words, so enjoy this photographic journey through Lesotho. Read here for 13 interesting facts about Lesotho and the drive to Lesotho via the Sani Pass.
Thanks 🙂 It indeed is a very interesting country and worth visiting!
Lesotho looks simply stunning! We were supposed to spend some time there after travelling across Africa but I became unwell so had to cancel the very last part of our trip. I’m so disappointed we missed out on seeing this amazing country. I’ll have to plan a trip back one day!
Sorry you missed out on your last trip. But like you say, you’ll have to plan a return trip one day, it will be worth it!:-)
