It is a small state of mountain (a little greater than the Piedmont), kingdom of the Basothos and the Zulý, enclave inside the South African Republic.
The mountainous plateau is mezzanine toward east, finishing along the South African border with the spectacular scarps of the Drakensberg.
It is a strange state, with wide percentage of the population tormented by AIDS, but with beautiful landscapes of mountain, rich of waters and of artificial basins.
The capital Maseru (almost 300.000 inhabitants), the only true city of the nation, is set near the border with the South Africa.
