  • A breathtaking viewpoint on a 2,000 metre high pass looking into the Makhaleng Valley towards Thaba Putsoa Mountain range of central west Lesotho. Pony Trekking lodge at Malealea Village is off to left about 5.6 along the very rough gravel road on left. Photo taken on Saturday 13th April 2019 while on drive to Maseru.
  • Loved it
  • The road to this pass really brings you to the "gates of paradise". It is not an easy road, full of pits and stones, but the view when you are at the top is unparalleledly beautiful, both in the morning and in the evening at sunset.
  • there's no water :(
