This is most the main reason why tourists take pains to travel to the tiny kingdom, just to explore the fresh morning breeze within the Maluti Mountains.

Scary to drive on the roads but all worth it when you get to the top and look down!!! The views are awesome, nothing like it!! At about 3,000 meters above see level, feels like you are looking at it from a plane.

The Maloti Mountains,also spelled Maluti, are a mountain range of the highlands of the Kingdom of Lesotho. They extend for about 100 km into the Free State. The Maloti Range is part of the Drakensberg mountains that includes ranges across large areas of South Africa. The majestuous mountains form the northeastern arc of Lesotho’s circumferential boundary with South Africa. Within Lesotho, maloti means merely “mountains,” or “in the mountains,” and as used in the country’s western lowlands—all more than 3,300 feet (1,000 m) in elevation—it signifies the mountainous eastern two-thirds of Lesotho, containing the highest peaks in southern Africa. Most of the roads are gravel, beyond Thaba Tseka you can travel for more than 100 kilometres without crossing any car. I highly recommend an early morning drive to see the Sunrise.
