The Geneva based publisher Editions Olizane produces a series of excellent topographic maps of the region of Ladakh – Zanskar. Maps are printed on light, waterproof and tear-resistant plastic paper, double-sided. The maps have exceptionally clear cartography with contours at 100m intervals, enhanced by relief shading, additional spot heights for peaks and passes, plus colouring indicating glaciers, marshes, protected zones and forested or cultivated areas. Population centres are graded into towns, villages, hamlets and settlements and names of local regions are shown.

Roads, tracks and numerous trails are clearly highlighted and symbols indicate various places of interest: forts, palaces and ruins: religious sites; old trade routes; caves and hot springs; checkpoints and military posts, etc. Also provided is a glossary of geographical and cultural local terms. Map legend in English and French.
