Feel like you are on top of the world by taking a pony trek in Lesotho
No visit to Lesotho would be complete without taking part in a pony trek. These tenacious mounts are the vehicle of choice for most Basotho people as the strong and sturdy Lesotho ponies can handle the narrow and rough mountainous terrain far better than any 4X4 can. Your destination is at around 6,500 ft above sea level in the aptly named Valley of Paradise, so you will feel like you are on top of the world as you steadily stride past waterfalls and through gorges that boast ancient rock art sites. Slow down and experience the tranquil pace of rural life as you pass by Basotho villages and shepherds with their cattle, sheep and goats out grazing on the land.
