How is Lesotho geographically divided?

Lesotho is divided into 3 geographic regions;

  • Lowlands, following the southern banks of the Caledon river and in the Senqu river valley
  • Highlands, formed by the Drakensberg and Maluti Mountain ranges in the east and central parts of the country
  • Foothills, form a divide between lowlands and highlands

Lesotho is also divided into 10 administrative districts, each district with its own town. The districts are further subdivided into 80 constituencies, which consist of 129 local community councils.
