Founded in 1869 by the British, Lesotho's main city--Maseru--lies on the border with South Africa on a plateau surrounded by red hills.
On the 1st (Mon), pause for some serene contemplation at Our Lady of Victory Cathedral, then see human ingenuity at work at Katse Dam, then explore the galleries of National Museum, and finally contemplate the long history of Thaba-Bosiu National Monument. Here are some ideas for day two: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Maluti Mountains, shop like a local with Lesotho Co-operative Handicrafts, and then try to win big at Lesotho Sun Casino.

To see more things to do, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Maseru trip planner.
