NepalTOPO NPL Routable – Countrywide Topographic Map of Nepal
This is the main topographical map of Nepal we publish. It’s the map with the highest level of detail, capable for trekking in remote areas as well as navigating by car through the country. Besides topographical details this map includes a detailed street layer and all details of our street maps as well.
Because the map is fully routable, it also can be used for turn-by-turn vehicle navigation, for example with a Garmin® Nüvi® GPS-receiver in your car. But please aware that there are only some areas with a high level of detail, which will offer detailed navigation (e.g. Kathmandu). For other regions there is only a main street layer of main highways and roads.
All our maps are compatible with Garmin®-GPS-Receivers, which can display maps in Garmin® vector format. This includes all “On the Road”-Receivers as well as all “On the Trail”-Mapping-Handhelds. The maps could be used directly with your GPS-Receiver and can of course also be viewed on your computer with one of your favourite GPS-Software like Mapsource® or Basecamp® (free of charge). For using the maps on your GPS-Receiver you have to transfer the maps to your GPS-device. After transfering, the new map is available together with the receiver’s basemap. The software for transfering the maps to your GPS-receiver is included, so there is no need to have additional software for using the maps on your receiver (Windows only). Another alternative is to use the microSD™-/SD™-card version, which also do not need any additional software on your computer. However, to use the map on your computer with Mapsource® or Basecamp®, the microSD™-/SD™-card version also includes the map as installable software package.
On your computer you can plan routes and treks, look after sights or other waypoints (like lodges, campsites, etc.) you want to visit or you can even prepare and reconstruct self-recorded tracks. The digital topographical maps are compatible with many software products which can read maps in Garmin®’s vector format, including Mapsource® and Basecamp® (free of charge), Sendmap®, Touratech QV® and many more.
