The hike is totally worth it. Try and get a guide to go with and tell king Moshoeshoe story. Very interesting and the views are AMAZING. Carry water, wear long sleeves and a sun hat and a light snack. It's M20/R20 to go up.

Our tour guide was very knowledgable, which made a big difference to the experience. I don't think the trip out there would be good without a guide. We learned a lot about Basotho history.
