The Moshoeshoe Walk (Menkhoaneng to Thaba-Bosiu) is an annual three-day walk from Menkhoaneng to Thaba–Bosiu where Basotho nation was built up by its founder King Moshoeshoe I. This historical walk has been successfully organized since 2007 and has attracted local, regional and international travelers.
