Semonkong Urban Council is situated deep in the mountains of Lesotho in the district of Maseru. It is about 100km from the capital city. It is peri-urban and has been made an urban council after the 2011 Local Government Elections. It is the area which attracts many tourists because of its beautiful scenery and the famous Maletsunyana Falls which is one of the biggest falls in Lesotho. Though Semonkong is the urban council it has a lot of challenges in comparison with other urban councils that are normally found in town as it is in the rural area.
