Highlights from your trip

Maseru

— 4 nights
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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Thaba-Bosiu National Monument and Our Lady of Victory Cathedral. Escape the urban bustle at Maluti Mountains and Gates of Paradise Pass. Change things up with these side-trips from Maseru: Mafika Lisiu Pass (in Pitseng), Morija Museum & Archives (in Morija) and Teyateyaneng (Ha Kome Cave Houses & Setsoto Design Gallery). There's still lots to do: see human ingenuity at work at Katse Dam, explore the galleries of National Museum, and try your luck at Lesotho Sun Casino.

You can plan Maseru trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
