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.Get outdoors at Maletsunyane Falls and Maluti Mountains. Get out of town with these interesting Maseru side-trips: Gates of Paradise Pass (in Malealea), Morija Museum & Archives (in Morija) and Teyateyaneng (Setsoto Design Gallery & Ha Kome Cave Houses). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Thaba-Bosiu National Monument, stop by Lesotho Co-operative Handicrafts, see human ingenuity at work at Mohale Dam, and try to win big at Lesotho Sun Casino.
