Boring tour. 50 dollars per person for a taxi to Lesotho and back. The tour includes a visit in a village that was very bad too. Do not go there

Such an awesome, beautiful experience and completely doable. Walking up the pass allows to you to see so much more of the breathtaking scenery. I would really recommended taking a hike up - it’s well worth it.
