It is so small that it is easily forgotten! Lesotho covers 11,583 sq mi in the southeast of Southern Africa. Independent since 1966, it has come a long way! The whole country is about 3,280 ft above sea level. Hikers love trekking along the Maluti chain
to end at the peak of Thabana Ntlentyana, the highest point in Southern Africa. Travel to Lesotho is not common among tourists, but those who do venture to the country will not be disappointed.
