the world's most spectacular roads


The Mahlasela pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3,222 m (10,571 ft) above the sea level, located  in the Maluti mountains of Lesotho. The tarred road to reach the summit is one of the 
highest mountain passes of Lesotho. The only skiing resort in Lesotho, Afriski is situated here.

This road is usually open all year, but heavy snowfalls frequently closes the pass in winter. It is considered to be the highest road pass in Southern Africa. 

The road includes some steep sections, without market central lines, is very narrow, barely wide enough for 2 cars at the same time and it has not protections or guardrails. The Mahlasela pass is one of two passes that links the town of Butha-Buthe with the diamond mining town of Mokhotlong, the other pass being the Moteng pass.
