ITMB delayed printing this map for six months in order to send a person into the region to locate the route of the new railway to Lhasa accurately (it's a military secret to the Chinese). It took three years and repeated visits to the country, undercover, of course, before we could get the locations and spellings of dozens of monasteries, mountains, and villages correct. This is an exceptional map!
This detailed map of Tibet also includes very good insert maps of Norbulingka, the Lhasa Valley, Potala and Barkor.
The map is fully indexed and clearly shows international borders, disputed borders (always good to know), provincial borders and prefecture borders. The map also shows railways, motorways, main roads, connecting roads, minor roads and tracks. Clearly marked are cities, towns, villages and settlements.
One of the best features of this map is that it is shaded to show the different elevations throughout the country as well as showing the spot heights of the mountains.
The map is printed on durable waterproof paper which means it will last the length of your adventure and will not tear or fall apart if it gets wet.
