Butha-Buthe

In the early 19th century, tribal groups fleeing from the violent Zulu King Shaka found refuge in the high Maluti Mountains. One group under Moshoeshoe I successfully defended the flat-topped sandstone plateau of Butha-Buthe Mountain 7 for two years before relocating to Thaba Bosiu.

Butha-Buthe’s summit is accessible by a fairly stiff but not outrageously difficult climb, which may suggest why Moshoeshoe I felt inclined to move. The view from the summit is a wonderful one of the surrounding areas. Founded in 1884 to facilitate tax collection, the town of Butha-Buthe (“Lie Down”) is situated on the Hlotse River with a beautiful backdrop of mountains.
