Google Sightseeing: Lesotho, Kingdom in the Sky

Lesotho is the southernmost landlocked country, the largest country that’s entirely surrounded by another country (South Africa), the highest country on Earth (the lowest elevation in Lesotho is 1,400 m (4,593 ft) above sea level), and also carries the distinction of being one of the most deforested countries on Earth. Yet, it doesn’t really show up on too many people’s radar. With the arrival of Google Street View imagery this month to Lesotho, it’s time to shed some light on the world’s largest enclave. In my latest Google Sightseeing article, you’ll see everything from Parliament to corrugated steel bus shelters, two of Africa’s largest hydroelectric dams, traditional Basotho villages, and even a ski resort.
