The Malealea Monster MTB Challenge 2012 review

The 2nd annual Malealea Monster Challenge in conjunction with the Lesotho Cyling Association was a big success this year! There were over 30 participants – a massive increase in numbers from last years inaugural event. We hope the event will continue to grow in participants year on year! The route while offering beautiful views, local trails and single track was a rough and tough 70 and 33km.

The “Lucky” hicking guide of Malealea

The “Lucky” hicking guide of Malealea

We love hiking and usually hire guides in order to learn more about the country while discovering the country on foot. Our guide was named LUCKY…his basotho name was very long an complicate to pronounce, thus the guides tend to use their English names. Lucky is 22 years old and has for the past 2 or 3 years been working as a guide at Malealea. He loves his work and it grants him and his family a small income. Even though Lucky is still relatively young, he is full of knowledge and wonderfully skilled as a guide.
