Snow in Lesotho

Lesotho gets snowy spring

  • 5 October, 2018

MASERU (Tmglive) – It was not unusual when sprung of spring was greeted with heavy snow in the mountains of Lesotho. The snow-prone mountain kingdom, honoured for being “Kingdom in the Sky” – does rarely get snow in October.

On Tuesday Lesotho woke up to the glare of white mountains and chilly weather with strong winds of 60-70km/h in the morning hours.

The cold conditions could still be felt on Friday morning and the snow still blanketed much of the Drakensburg mountains.

The Lesotho Defence Force (LDF) had to carry to safety with military helicopters about 180 people trapped in the mountains.
