Gorgeous but you need good weather. We walked to it from the village and then you can see it from above (one third of it) and then you still need to make a big bend (30 minutes) to get to them opposite

Worth the walk or horse ride out to these beautiful falls in the mountains, just wonderful to see. Small fee to pay to get close, but worth it.

Maletsunyane Falls located in an unspoilt area in Semonkong is a 192-metre-high waterfall dropping into a gorge. The falls is one of the highest waterfalls in the world. It is accessible by a car and it's worth seeing. One can enjoy beautiful views of lush valleys and mountain streams along the way to the falls. Also it is more likely than not to come across a roadblock of sheep. and/or cattle. You just need to be patient. Great experience.

Spent two days hiking around the falls and all the views were stellar. The view from the bottom after a fairly challenging hike was the best.

The site is great, I hiked to the viewpoint, the bottom (the trail is rough and steep, you don't need a guide but you need good shoes) and the top, and I enjoyed it.
But they are now building a concrete structure (an hotel ?) which really spoils this untouched site.

When you visit this side of Lesotho the Maletsunyane waterfall in Lesotho is definitely worth a visit. Driving the road to the fall is horrible and you have to walk quite a way down and back up once you reach it. But it is well worth the effort to see on this most beautifull God made waterfall!

Not only a Guinness world record abseil and magnificently beautiful but managed by such splendid charismatic guides who make safety the utmost important part of your activity whilst ensuring you have fun and feel confident.

Thanks to a superb group of guys for a great abseil !

Maletsunyane Falls are (is? because it's one fall?) beautiful and definitely worth seeing in person. You can get there by walking, pony trekking or driving, and once you're there you can even abseil and/or hike down to the bottom of the falls.

If you're self-driving, staying somewhere other than Semonkong Lodge, and hiking on your own, you'll want to drive to Semonkong Lodge and park there. You can ask someone for a map or, like us, just sort of wander around the hills and ask herd boys which way to go :) (That was actually really enjoyable, so getting "lost" was a nice treat!).

Unspoiled nature at its best. Enjoy!

Awesome views down a winding pass with treats to scenes of waterfalls and rivers. Tourists have the opportunity to stop at designated spots to enjoy the scenery. Now and then we came across locals in traditional clothes on the back of a horse. Well kept tar roads. Felt like we had been lost in time.

We did the 204m abseil that is managed by the Semonkong lodge and it was a phenomenal experience.

Very professional guides.

Well worth it!

The views of the falls are breathtaking with many different vantage points you can drive to.
