Visitors to the interior of Lesotho should bring clothing and equipment suitable for extreme cold weather during the winter months of June through October. Weather conditions can deteriorate rapidly in the mountains, and snow often closes mountain passes. Temperatures can drop below freezing even in the lowlands.
Lesotho has one of the highest rates of lightning strikes per square mile in the world, and lightning-related deaths are not uncommon. If you find yourself in a storm, find shelter in a building or car.
