The kingdom Lesotho is called the "kingdom of heaven" and is the only country in the world where the entire area is over 1000 meters above sea level. The beautiful mountain areas of Lesotho can be experienced on foot or from horseback. The Lesotho ponies are of the friendly variety, they are steady and calm, and do not run out of line unless asked to do so.
Basotho (the people of Lesotho) is a nation with proud traditions, beliefs and customs. The annual Morija art festival in September shows this rich culture and celebration that Lesotho is proud of. If you want to be part of the celebration, you are warmly welcomed.
