Riassunto: The mountains that give Lesotho its dramatic landscapes have also played a crucial role in creating a country with a unique history. It?s a stirring story of courage and cunning, featuring remarkable individuals such as King Moshoeshoe?founder of the Basotho nation?who first gathered people together on the flat-topped hill Thaba Bosiu, the mountain of night.
Today, Lesotho is an irresistible lure to adventurous travelers who want to head off the beaten path and tackle the mighty mountains. But Lesotho isn?t as inaccessible as it seems. The country is bisected by a number of tarred and gravel roads and these lead the motorist on jaw-dropping drives through some of the highest mountains this side of Kilimanjaro. Small rural villages nestle on the slopes, much as they have done for over 200 years, and delightful lodges are tucked away in secluded valleys. All in all, it?s a land of secret vistas and pristine scenery. This book is one of the first travel guides dedicated solely to Lesotho. It will give the traveler an insight into the remarkable history of the country. Suggested itineraries are included, along with accommodation options, leisure activities and other useful information that will help you plan your trip.
