Qacha’s Nek is a border town, located 2 kilometers north of the Eastern Cape that was established in 1888 and named after Ncatya, the son of chief Moorosi, who ruled over much of southern Lesotho in the early 1800s. Today there are a handful of historic buildings that remain, but other than hiking in the surrounding mountains there isn’t much to keep visitors here. It is the last sizeable town to stock up in for those continuing on to the east.
