Very detailed maps (pdf and Gps enabled) for the adventurous: Indian Himalaya (Ladakh, Himachal Pradesh), Sri Lanka, Maldives, Oman, and more

This level of detail is just unheard of

Mercator Productions specialises in detailed mapping of the edges of the mapped world:

The last pieces of free Tibet in the Indian Himalayas: (Ladakh, Lahaul & Spiti)
Serendip: the whole of Sri Lanka
The Maldives (with resort indicator)

NOW THEY ALL HAVE A GPS VERSION TOO !

Before giving you the details, and perhaps to show off just a little bit: lets compare the 'best' locally available map (made by one of the most famous Ladakhi trekking guides), the US famous U502 series topo, and our map.

First, the 'local' map, of wich the author acknowledges himself: "only the placenames are reliable, the paths and roads need major corrections."

So, what about the US intelligence maps? The righteously famous U502 series (sometimes). Well, MUCH better, that's for sure:

Oh man, this LOOKS much better. The rivers are more complete, and it also shows two river crossings, although the one at Darbuk is now south of the village, not north of it. And after the 2nd bridge there's a road alright going to Shyok. But, have a look at the REAL situation.
our own map (contour info omitted for clarity):

See the difference: the first bridge is WAY more south (in fact, just off te map, south of Punpun), and the second bridge is WAY more to the west (yes, that's to the left).
