Maps -- Description

Each map:

  • Covers about 50 square km. at a scale of 6 centimeters to the kilometer (equivalent to 1:16,667).
  • Covers the edge of the forest, and therefore includes the lower section of the forest and the upper section of agricultural lands below the forest.
  • Shows hundreds of kilometers of footpaths and seldom used motor roads (stone or dirt roads) suitable for walking. Shows all the major crossings of each valley.
  • Shows a section of the ‘ Ring Route ’ around the twin peaks, roughly one-eighth of the entire route appearing in each map.
  • Provides UTM coordinates suitable for use with a GPS receiver, and shows a grid-square of boxes 250 meters wide.
  • Distinguishes 13 different kinds of land use areas.
  • Shows contour intervals of 12.5 m.
  • Shows hundreds of markers for scenic views, landmarks, facilities such as general shops and meatball soup shops, attractions such as waterfalls and places for view­ing wildlife, etc.
  • Identifies 4 scenic ‘circle routes’ for which narrative text is provided in the guidebook, each 5-13 km. and requiring a half day or day to walk.
  • Is printed on plastic Yupo paper for water repellency.
