Kotisephola Pass

Kotisephola Pass

Kotisephola Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.245m (10,646ft) above the sea level, located in the Black Mountain of Lesotho. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of Lesotho. 

Located in Mokhotlong district, the road was recently paved. It’s steep with countless turns. Open to traffic throughout the year. May be closed for short periods in winter when the weather is bad.

 The pass is located near the border of Lesotho and South Africa, north west of the Sani Pass on the way to Mokhotlong. The journey has great landscape and fantastic views of the barren mountains of Lesotho.
