What to do in Lesotho: the country with a SKI TRACK IN AFRICA?


Today, let's explore a unique country, a nation that touches the sky. We are talking about Lesotho, a country where you are never below 1000 meters altitude. Yes that's right! Isn't it fascinating?


This small mountainous country, completely surrounded by South Africa, is known as the "Kingdom in the Sky", and with good reason! The majestic mountains and breathtaking landscapes will leave you impressed.



And of course, as good explorers that we are, we have to indicate the 5 best places for you to visit. Firstly, don't forget to check out the capital Maseru, with its mix of tradition and modernity. Afterwards, we go to Thaba Bosiu, a crucial historical site for the nation. Maletsunyane Falls is a must-see, as is Sehlabathebe National Park. Finally, get ready to explore the village of Semonkong and its impressive waterfall.


In Lesotho, the local currency is Loti and the main language is Sesotho, but don't worry, English is widely spoken. And the good news for Brazilians is that a visa is not required to visit the country for up to 90 days!


However, before embarking, it is worth highlighting that Lesotho faces significant socioeconomic and political challenges. Despite its natural beauty, poverty and political instability have been constant.


Now, returning to our curiosity in the title: did you know that, due to this minimum altitude of 1000 meters, Lesotho has the highest bar in Africa? It's the Sani Top Chalet, located at more than 2800 meters! Now, imagine enjoying a drink with a view like that...
