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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Maseru: Mafika Lisiu Pass (in Pitseng), Gates of Paradise Pass (in Malealea) and Maletsunyane Falls (in Semonkong). There's lots more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Maluti Mountains, admire the engineering at Mohale Dam, stop by Lesotho Co-operative Handicrafts, and steep yourself in history at Ha Kome Cave Houses.

For photos, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Maseru vacation planner.
