1) TAAN map:

TAAN map is the type of map given by the Trekking agencies association Nepal (TAAN). This map includes all the details from all the other maps. This map is for those, who love to travel all alone. It is also super useful for travel enthusiasts and for those who always want to explore a new trail. Therefore, In this map, you will find names, locations, of all the smallest villages, all other smaller peaks, popular temples, and monasteries of that area. You will see the dense forest along the contour lines. The layout and designs of the trail are all easy for your eye to see.

The major drawback of this map is its availability. This map cannot be found in such places as this is produced by an association of travel companies. The major plan of this association is not focusing on selling the map. On the other hand, other maps could be easily found in local map shops. Thus, this map can be also helpful for those, who know how to read a map and its parameters.

2) Nepa maps:

Nepa Maps is another best map for Annapurna base camp trek and other regions. The best part about this map is, it is easy to understand this map with little guidance. The indexes on the map are easy to understand with little knowledge and guide us on reading a map. This map is not as detailed as TAAN maps but contains all the necessary information for beginner travelers. This map is mostly preferred by those traveling in remote areas. One feature that is common in both TAAN maps and Nepa maps is it contains an indicator of peaks, small settlements, temples, and monasteries.

 

Himalayan maps

Besides the above-mentioned maps, Himalayan maps can be also another choice for trekking in Nepal. This map is produced by Himalaya Kartographisches Institute. The Nepal Maps and Himalayan maps resemble almost similar features. In comparison to Nepa maps, this is also simple and quite easier to understand. This is because of the fewer parameters contained in it. Whilst Nepa maps contain vague content with a plethora of parameters.

Both maps can be used according to your use. If you are traveling with a guide, the Himalayan map would be a better choice. Otherwise traveling alone can be accomplished by the Nepa map. Nepa maps are more transparent and possess a higher sales amount. A good share of information can be obtained from Himalayan maps. You can also find small settlements, forests, trails, teahouses, etc, but in less amount and contain less accuracy. Moreover, Topographic features are also not well exposed. The limited feature makes this map only suitable for popular routes/areas.

Mandala Trekking Map

Last but not the least, Mandala trekking maps are a very basic trekking map. It contains a long list, exceptionally. Making people confuse to locate the exact location. However, proper guidance to operate this map avoids this confusion easily. Overloaded information is only for those in need. Therefore, You can find the needed information on the front page. The disadvantage of this map is, lots of settlements (the ones for main tourists) are not included. Not only this, smaller in size but places with greater importance are also not depicted.

This map misses small temples, monasteries, etc. No details of Topographic places. It contains a thin and compressed contour line. This series of the map only suits for popular places. Finding small peaks, many settlements, trails, etc would be difficult with no clear description. This is the reason why this map is also called the typical Tourist map. You cannot find the information about the less trekking area. Plus point about this map is, it is cheaper than other maps. It is easily available. Mandala trekking map is most bought by adventure travelers. Many companies also give this map as a part of the trekking packages.
