It's literally a hike up a mountain but the views and the stories are totally worth it. (No need to be fit, just some walking)
Our guide, Lebohang Mafa, was so wonderful. Knowledgeable and patient. I learnt so much! The info was delivered in a relaxed and conversational manner, not like he is reading from a script or sounding rehearsed. He also answered our questions in depth. He also took amazing pictures and video and directed the angles.

The drive is tricky if you are not coming from Maseru side. Our car is low profile but we still made it, carefully.

You can do the village and restaurant after the mountain, they close later.

The lady at reception was also nice and friendly.

I kept the pictures vague so that you can enjoy it as much as we did!

Mountain at Night is the "English" translation, as the Basothos believe the mountain grew during the night, once was a natural fortress. This was once Lesotho Capital, it is close to Maseru the Capital, very easy access via road- good condition road to get there. One can hike or mountain bike to the top, the hike was easy, and it is absolutely beautiful view of Lesotho, with mountain range, one can image that Free State was part of Lesotho. Easy to visit without a tour guild.

This place is definitely worth a two hours visit. Try to get the dedicated and friendly guide, Pusetso, or one of her colleagues, to join you and explain the history behind the formation of Leshoto 170 years ago. Great views from the top will reward your efforts should you find the ascent strenous. Afterwards, you can visit the cultural village and the museum for further insight into the not too distant past of this charming and beautiful country.

We did not attempt the climb up to the plateau but I am sure - if you can make it – it would be well worth the effort! We had the history of the site before visiting the Cultural Centre.

This was an enjoyable visit with a guided tour of the site – including examples of the different types of traditional buildings of the country and a small museum. There is also a restaurant there but it was rather too early to sample their food.

Great service at the foothill of Thaba Bosiu. I enjoyed Basotho meals and I am certain to go back at the earliest opportunity

The experience was excellent. Plenty pf parking space, they are selling original traditional Basotho hats and wrap arounds (Basotho blankets)....
Nice place to learn more about the history of the nation...
Decent toilet facilities nearby and overall a well organised place with plenty of views. Very tranquil and quiet too. Make sure you have very comfortable sneakers to reach the monument.

A real treat and worth a visit. A plateau which signifies the spot where Moshoeshoe was able to defend against the continued attack’s from the Zulu tribes and the afrikaners. A very reflective place steeped in proud history. Some good photos can be taken here

A large site where probably a lot of money has been spent. A large car park, several big buildings housing the reception, conference centre, restaurant and museum. Further on are accommodation units. And tucked behind them is one of the things you have come to see, the replica historical villages. The first few huts you see are quite interesting, the individual compounds housing one two or three rooms. Different styles. Unfortunately they are all exactly the same inside. No tools that might have been used, furnishings, personal touches or anything to how how things might have changed with time. For such an impressive site of modern buildings it felt blandly done.
The walk up the hill to visit the graveyard and to take in the views was more interesting than the cultural centre or museum.
