Nepal Trekking Map

Nepal: Great Himalaya Trail and National Parks map at 1:500,000 from the Himalayan MapHouse, highlighting the course of the GHT’s High Route indicating base camps, plus the lower GHT Cultural Route, other important hiking trails, etc.

This very large map presents Nepal’s road network on a base derived from satellite imagery with colouring for forested areas. Numerous peaks are clearly marked and named. Also shown are the boundaries of the country’s national parks and conservation areas.

The course of the High Route of the Great Himalaya Trail (GHT) is prominently highlighted and annotated with symbols indicating base camps. The whole route, from Kanchenjunga in the east westwards to Hilsa, is also presented separately on a profile showing changes in altitude and trekking times for individual stages.

The map also highlights the course of the lower Cultural Route of the GHT and shows various other important trekking routes. Symbols indicate locations with accommodation, information offices, health centres, temples, viewpoints, as well as other base camps outside the High Route. Latitude and longitude lines are drawn at 1° intervals. There is no index of place names. Map legend and all the information is in English.

Also provided are lists of national parks/conservation areas/wildlife reserves and principal peaks, notes on the GHT Trail Code, plus colour photos of various peaks.
