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.
