Ha Kome Cave Houses, Teyateyaneng

1.4
#14 of 19 in Things to do in Lesotho
Admire Ha Kome Cave Houses, a cave settlement built in the mid-19th century as a sanctuary from cannibals, and still inhabited by the descendants of its original dwellers. Upon arrival, a guide walks you through the carved-out caves nestled under an overhanging rock. Nearby, find restroom facilities, souvenir shops, and the information center--even though you might get all the details you need from the locals, who happily open their doors to visitors and answer all questions. The settlement can be a bit difficult to find due to poor signage along the way.
