These companies specialise in exactly the type of publication that their name suggests: trekking maps and mountain climbing guides for North India, Nepal and the Himalayan region. Its range of maps are extremely detailed and specialised, each giving full details of specific treks, view points, glaciers, rivers, monasteries and resting points.
In effect, the Himalayan Map Company is a local Nepal manifestation – with the capacity to deal with this wild region in far more detail than any other global publisher.
All the Himalayan regions and nations are dealt with, including Afghanistan, Bhutan, China, Nepal, Tibet and the Sikkim region of India – but most focus is given to Nepal, Tibet and Northern India. Famous treks around landmarks such as the Annapurna, Lang Tang, Ganesh Himal, Lower Dolpo and Mount Everest are each given detailed treatment. Maps provide detailed explanations of the trekking routes themselves, accommodation, places of interest and more – in short everything an intrepid trekker or mountaineer would need to attempt the route for themselves.
We recommend these maps to any independent bookseller that specialises in travel writing. The level of detail and depth of subject matter is simply unmatched by other English-language travel publishers. We are delighted to offer an extensive selection of maps at attractive trade prices of £7.99 or £8.30. Call our UK office for ordering information on 01727 761677.
