Nepal on an indexed, waterproof and tear-resistant road map, ideal for locating the country's numerous famous peaks, with topographic and tourist information, and enlargements for Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Chitwan regions, plus Bhaktapur. The map, published by Reise Know-How as part of their highly acclaimed World Mapping Project, is double-sided to provide the best balance between a good scale and a convenient size sheet.
The base map has altitude colouring with contours, spot heights and mountain passes. Names of main trekking areas are prominently highlighted in coloured boxes (e.g. Khumbu Himal, Mustang, Dolpa, etc.), as are names of national parks and conservation areas. The same system is used for numeous peaks - colour coding to indicate famous peaks (Everest, Annapurna, Kanchenjunga, Dhaulagiri, etc.), peaks requiring permit and fee payment (Island Peak, Mera, Peak, Naya Kanga, etc.) and permit and royalty free peaks. Classic trekking routes are marked, e.g. Jiri to Everest Base Camp, the Annapurna Circuit, etc. The map highlights rafting or kayaking rivers such as Dudh and Tamba Kosi, Kali Gandaki, etc. Areas suitable for mountain biking are also indicated.
Internal administrative boundaries are shown with names of the provinces. Road network includes local roads, highlights scenic routes and indicates locations of fuel supply stations. Local airfields and helipads are also marked. A wide range of symbols highlights various places of interest, including temples and monasteries of various religions, archaeological sites, viewpoints, Tharu villages, crocodile and elephant breeding centres, etc. The map has a latitude and longitude grid at intervals of 15’ and an index of place names which includes peaks and trekking areas. Map legend includes English.
Enlargements, with more detailed contours and altitude colouring, are provided for the Kathmandu - Patan area (1:25,000), Pokhara Valley (1:30,000) and the Narayangadh - Royal Chitwan National Park area (1:200,000). Also included is a plan of Bhaktapur at 1:15,000.
