There is a road leading to Quthing from here, past small villages, like Mpiti; it follows the Senqu river, still, a small stream here; the Qanya river is a small tributary. The mountain village of Liqhoheng with its round stone thatched houses overlooks Mpiti, a friendly place, like all Basotho villages.
