This excellent map of the Himalaya region is perfect for planning travel as well as for navigating after you arrive. Using shaded relief to indicate topography, the map emphasizes the lowland and mountain areas.

The map coverage includes northern India, southern Tibet and surrounding areas in China, Bhutan, Nepal, Sikkim, northern Bangladesh, northern Pakistan, Kashmir, eastern Afghanistan and southern Tajikistan. Mountain ranges shown on the map include the Hindu Kush, the Karakorams, the Kailas, the Dafla Hills, the Singalila and the Mahabarat as well as the Great Himalayan.

All major roads, airports and railways are shown, as are a number of smaller roads. Distances between major centers is shown. The detail includes international and administrative boundaries, mountain peak and pass elevations, places of historical, religious or tourist interest, national parks and ancient sites. The legend is in English, German and French.

For over 20 years Nelles maps have been renowned throughout the world for their quality, faithfulness to detail and up-to-dateness.

So that streets, ferry links, railway lines, etc are always up to date, Nelles are continuously upgrading their maps - with the help of their international team of correspondents. Roads are provided with an exact kilometerage. Sights are highlighted extra clearly so that you don't miss any tourist attractions.

A good map must be hard-wearing and allow itself to be folded up simply and quickly. Nelles Maps are a handy pocket size with the reliable, practical concertina fold. In addition they use an extra high-quality speciality paper resulting in considerably increased fold strength.

Gloss Laminate

Gloss laminate makes colours look more vibrant and stand out more, but is quite shiny (reflective). If you’re planning on using a marker of any sort, this is a better choice because it’s easier to clean. Your print will be fully encapsulated (so laminated on both sides) in durable 80 micron laminate and will last you a lot longer than plain paper.

Matte Laminate

Matte laminate has a smooth, non-reflective, very classy looking surface. I wouldn’t say it dulls colours, but it doesn’t make them ‘pop’ (I hate that I just used that word) in the way that gloss does. Matte can be drawn on with pencil (and erased), but is harder to clean if you use markers. Your print will be fully encapsulated (so laminated on both sides) in durable 80 micron laminate and will last you a lot longer than plain paper.

Canvas

Everything looks better on canvas! Something about the texture really makes prints look wonderful. It is quite expensive though. We use a very high quality 340gsm artistic matte canvas. Your canvas print will come rolled with a roughly 50mm white border to allow you to have it stretched or mounted however you wish.
