Central Highlands

Drakensberg, Lesotho

Lesotho's rugged interior boasts the country's two trademark sights: the breathtaking Maletsunyane Falls (204m), which are almost twice the height of the Victoria Falls and offer the world's longest commercially operated, single-drop abseil; and the human-made spectacle of Katse Dam, an engineering feat holding a shimmering lake surrounded by rippling mountain slopes. The area offers an incredible mix of scenery, activities and engineering marvels, accessed from the lowlands up tortuous but stunning passes such as the excellently named God Help Me Pass (2281m) and the Mafika-Lisiu Pass (3090m), one of Lesotho's most beautiful roads.
