Comments about Mt. Everest and the Himalaya Topographic Map:
I use this map as a reference when reading stories of mountain climbing expeditions to Mt. Everest. When I have company, people are drawn to the map because of the mountain's notoriety. Having a detailed contour map of such a difficult, rugged and remote place is unbelievable and was considered next to impossible at times in the past.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
