Molumong Lodge is a rustic but comfortable self-catering establishment about 60 km (90 minutes) from the top of Sani Pass, and about 20 km (30 minutes) south of Mokhotlong. It commands sweeping views of the surrounding Malutis and operates from the residence of successive traders who ran the Molumong Trading Station.
Having retained its deeply romantic ambience, Molumong is popular with couples, families, adventurers and travelers who appreciate its central location, often en route to Katse Dam.
The house currently sleeps 12, the adjacent backpackers eight, while additional accommodation can comfortably accommodate between six and 12 guests. Molumong also offers camping.
The lodge does not have electricity and uses gas for cooking and hot showers, and candles for light. It does have wonderful spring water and flush toilets.
The rates are R100 per person for dorms, R230 per room for twins or doubles and R60 per person for camping.
Molumong is an ideal base from where to explore the back range of the Maluti mountains, or to pursue any number of adventure activities, including pony trekking, fly-fishing, hiking, mountain biking, star gazing, and relaxing.
Molumong’s biggest attraction - apart from the snow in winter - is the pony trekking operation, that is owned and run by a local moSotho who guides trips of various durations. Especially popular is the three-day ride to Thabana Ntlenyana, the highest point in southern Africa.
