: Located at a relatively high altitude, Lesotho is a country of mountains and the only country in the world where all of its area lies above 1,500 m (4,921 ft) above sea level. This fact has deserved Lesotho the name of the “Switzerland of Africa” and made it a center of activities such as hiking and skiing.
While visiting the country, one of the best ways to enjoy its natural beauty is by horse or pony. All kinds of tours are offered from 1 hour to several days of travel across the mountains and trekking routes. For the more adventurous, tours that go for several days are perhaps the best option for you get to stay in villages and explore the local culture.
Another great way to explore the country is by mountain bike. Typical tours cover about 200 km at high altitude while enjoying one of the most spectacular landscapes. Other activities include abseiling and rock climbing, canoeing, swimming and trout fishing. Lesotho is perhaps a small country, but an amazing destination with a wide variety of outdoor activities and a rich culture to discover. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADYPOcQnZ1c
