With almost 200Mr drop, this impressive Waterfalls create a haze of smoke, from which the name Semonkong (place of Smoke in Basotho language) come from. If you're staying in Semonkong, it's an easy 11km walk. I loved the vastness of the place and the lackness of touristy buses. Almost a meditative experience

Local legend has it that the thunderinge echo of the falls comes from all the wailing people who have met their end in its waters.
Maletsunyane Falls is a breathtaking sight, standing at 192 metres high. It is one of the highest single dropping waterfalls in the Southern Hemisphere and is an amazing day trip that defeintly deserves a spot on any Lesotho must-see list.
You can stay at Semonkong Lodge and sign up for one of their tours, or if you are just passing through it's easy enough to do by yourself.
There are also a variety of hiking trails to choose from The Phororo Viewpoint being the easiest and the Into The Smoke trail wich takes you to the bottom of the falls requiring a guide.
