Southern Lesotho

Qacha's Nek, Lesotho

The region south of Morija, across to Sehlabathebe National Park in the southeast, is less developed than the northwest but lingers in the memory banks of all who pass through. The mountain ranges eat up the sky out here, where a velvety orange-pink light pours over rocky peaks and yawning valleys. If you like hiking and pony trekking in rugged isolation, head south.

The road from Quthing to Qacha’s Nek is one of Lesotho’s most impressive drives, taking you along the winding Senqu (Orange) River gorge and through some striking canyon scenery before climbing up onto the escarpment. Another stunner is the road through the interior from Semonkong down to Qacha's Nek. Despite what some maps show, both are tarred all the way to Qacha’s Nek.
