The Kingdom in the Sky, Lesotho

Khotso, to the mountain kingdom!

Fresh from Russia, speaking a foreign language and accustomed to a certain temperature, I first set my eyes on the beautiful mountain kingdom when my mother shipped me to live with my grandparents when I was three. "The motherland", and the home that holds my heart. The undisturbed mountain terrains, the vast countryside and the beautiful people whose culture I call my own is the reason why I think this is one of the most incredible places in the world. If you are like me, and you love adventure, here are a couple of things I would recommend you visit when you go to Lesotho:

AfriSki Resort
Wow. They say life is more about the journey rather than the destination. There are few words I can use to describe the journey that leads to the AfriSki resort in Lesotho. Towards the end of last year, I visited Afriski with two of my work friends and discovered this place for the first time. It is a Panoramic, 360 degrees out of this world wonder. If you love mountains and nature, you will enjoy the thrill of getting to the resort. The roads are for the adventure junkies. Once you get to the resort, you will be amazed by how beautiful the place is. I was particularly surprised by how many accommodation options they offered and the range of activities available. You will definitely get value for your buck by going there, even if it is for just one night-which is what I did. The backpacker’s option is pretty cool too!

Katse Dam

According to Wikipedia, The Katse Dam, a concrete arch dam on the Malibamat'so River in Lesotho, is Africa's second largest double-curvature arch dam.  It is the highest dam in Africa. It is by far the most efficient storage dam in Africa due to its great depth and relatively small surface area, which reduces evaporation. There is a tourist package designed to take you on a tour of the whole dam after an informational session about the history of the dam. You can then go in groups and enjoy how they operate the whole dam, store water and distill it. It really is a fantastic place to visit and a family friendly affair. 

Maseru Night Life

Whether it's a cold sundowner spot, a place to dine and wine, or a place to go out dancing with the girls, Maseru, the capital city of Lesotho, has it all. The small city has various night clubs, great spots to vibe and chill. Look for a local to take you around and show you the best spots to hang and you will enjoy dancing all night long.

Other places worth looking at are:
1.Maletsunyane Falls
2.Thaba Bosiu Cultural Village
3.Sehlabathebe National Park

Khotso!!Enjoy Lesotho
