Lesotho
The Kingdom of Lesotho, often just referred to as Lesotho is a landlocked country in southern Africa and is bordered by South Africa on all sides. It is the only country in the world where the land area is over 1000 meters above sea level. The highest point is Thabana Ntlenyana located 3482 m. The country became independent in 1966, but is totally dependent on South Africa, which surrounds Lesotho on all sides. Because of its elevation Lesotho has a pleasant climate.

Lesotho is located in the subtropical summer rainfall area, where rainfall is associated with southeast trade wind. The rainfall, which often comes as powerful thunderstorms, most places 500-750 mm Because of the altitude temperatures are relatively low, and winter is both frost and snow. Mean temperature in the capital Maseru (1570 m.) Is 21 ° C in the warmest month (Dec.-February) and 8 ° C in the coldest month (June-July).

Travel to Lesotho is like stepping into an unknown world. The country is so clean and exquisite that you quickly feel like you have the world all to yourself. The country is referred to as the "Kingdom of Heaven". A large part of the country is stunningly beautiful mountainous areas inhabited by proud people and with plenty of opportunities for hiking in the great outdoors.
