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.You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Lesotho Co-operative Handicrafts and Our Lady of Victory Cathedral. Take a break from the city and head to Maletsunyane Falls and Maluti Mountains. Change things up with these side-trips from Maseru: Teyateyaneng (Ha Kome Cave Houses & Setsoto Design Gallery), Gates of Paradise Pass (in Malealea), Mafika Lisiu Pass (in Pitseng) and Morija Museum & Archives (in Morija). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Thaba-Bosiu National Monument, get engrossed in the history at National Museum, try your luck at Lesotho Sun Casino, and explore the historical opulence of Royal Palace.
