Nepal-Topo Maps

In the Google map below you will see many color-coded rectangles.  If you click on the corner of any rectangle it will ‘select’ and open a balloon with a link to the respective map.  The rectangles show the map boundary and the color indicates the date of original publication.  You can zoom in and drag the map to get a closer view of the rectangles.

Red = before 1800; Orange = 1800-1849; Yellow = 1850-1899; Blue = 1900-1949; Green = after 1950


Any map can be downloaded by clicking the links below.

    • There are two sets of topo maps for Nepal–maps supported by JICA cover the area around Lumbini including all of Kapilbastu, while maps supported by the Finns cover the rest of Nepal. Complete sets of both series of maps are provided. The numbering system for the two sets of maps are different, and index maps for both sets of maps are provided in the MCADD collection. Please see the file “0 JICA Index Map.jpg” to identify the full set of maps covering Kapilbastu. MCADDeditor

  1. Thank you very much… Great Job..//
    But if you keep the latest updated map then.. that may be very useful..

  2. Recently there has been a problem with so many files being downloaded that we exceed our allowed bandwidth, and the system shuts down. We were down for four days the end of June. We suspect someone is trying to download the entire collection, and thus overloading the system. So we have put in place a restriction of five files per day per IP address, to see if this will help resolve this problem. This restriction is new, and perhaps still not working properly. We request emails from anyone experiencing problems in downloading files which do not exceed the five file daily limit. We would also like comments regarding the five file daily limit, or other ideas to improve the overall system. Best wishes, MCADDeditor.
