So we went to Lesotho today, scouting for technical routes for a trip we want to do shortly.
It turned out to be a great day with awesome new tracks discovered.
I will let the pictures tell the story:

I don't do ride reports anymore, but I do post lots of pictures every time we do these rides :thumleft:

Crop Sprang, when you get to Sehelabathebe take the new road to Qacha via Tsoelike bridge ( not the A4 ),  it is one of the most scenic roads in Lesotho and not on any maps.

Find the gpx file attached

BTW, are you gonna do any of the 5x Village chief roads on your way?

Already in the gps from one of your Lesotho routes thread
Looks great...really looking forward to this new road
Staying at Pohali lodge then down towards Thaba Tsheka, left to matebeng and onwards to Sehlabathebe, staying at khotso horse trails lodge ( mahatsu village) , new road then Qachas down to Matatiele , gravel to  Ixopo and the Buddhist retreat for a weekend of great food and silence........
My mate is on his 800gs and me on the 701......might be interesting on matebeng pass
Have checked out some of the chiefs routes......yo yo yo........800gs might need proper skill for those routes......trying to convince him to get a lighter machine for those
