Maseru

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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Maseru: Morija Museum & Archives (in Morija) and Gates of Paradise Pass (in Malealea). The adventure continues: admire the engineering at Katse Dam, contemplate the long history of Thaba-Bosiu National Monument, explore the galleries of National Museum, and shop like a local with Lesotho Co-operative Handicrafts.

Medina, Saudi Arabia to Maseru is an approximately 21-hour flight. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Medina to Maseru due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Medina in March, with highs in Maseru at 28°C and lows at 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Tue) to allow time to drive to Butha-Buthe.

Kingdom in the Sky
Mountainous Lesotho lends itself well to an adventurous holiday itinerary. Entirely located above 1,000 m (3,280 ft) in elevation, the country enjoys a cool climate with around 300 days of sunshine each year. Explorations of the mountains form the backbone of many Lesotho holidays. Remote villages located way up in the highlands, only accessible on foot or by horseback, offer a glimpse into the country's authentic culture with their lively markets, traditional eateries, and musical traditions.
