Maseru

Maseru ©
Founded in 1869 by the British, Lesotho's main city--Maseru--lies on the border with South Africa on a plateau surrounded by red hills.
Escape the urban bustle at Gates of Paradise Pass and Maluti Mountains. Explore hidden gems such as Ha Kome Cave Houses and Royal Palace. Change things up with these side-trips from Maseru: Maletsunyane Falls Semonkong (in Semonkong) and Morija Museum & Archives (in Morija). There's much more to do: admire the engineering at Mohale Dam, pause for some serene contemplation at Our Lady of Victory Cathedral, steep yourself in history at Thaba-Bosiu National Monument, and get a taste of the local shopping with Lesotho Co-operative Handicrafts.

To find ratings, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Maseru road trip app.
