This village in Lesotho is a picturesque hour and a half drive from the Sani Pass Border Post. Mokhotlong started as a small police outpost in 1905 and over the years it developed into a remote trading hub for the people of the Highlands region. Since Mokhotlong is so remote, it was preserved from the development that other cities in Lesotho underwent. Mokhotlong gives tourists the opportunity to experience a truly traditional village in the ‘Kingdom in the Sky’.
