Heavy snow closes roads

According to reports from guests stranded at Katse and from Daniel at Polihali Lodge and Pony Trek Adventures, most of the high-lying passes in north-east Lesotho are closed due to heavy snow falls. These passes include Menoaneng Pass between Mokhotlong and Thaba Tseka on the A3, and Black Mountain Pass between Mokhotlong and Sani Pass.

At this stage, it’s not clear whether vehicles are able to get up Sani Pass.
