File:Himalayas Map.png


English: This is a map of the Himalayas that I cobbled together based on the information from a dozen surprisingly less than adequate maps of the region. The background topographical map is based off of the commons maps File:Topographic90deg N0E0.png and File:Topographic90deg N0E90.png. The locations of the countries are based off of looking at other maps, mostly at Wikipedia. They are for putting the range into a regional perspective and are not to be taken as definitive geopolitical boundaries. The rest is just done in Paint.NET, adding text, drawing lines, and then upping the darnkess on the area outside the mountain range. If I messed up, or you think you could do a better job, just do it! The method is outlined here for a reason. I know this isn't perfect. I hope that one day someone comes along and makes it better. I hold no ego or attachment to this work. The article needed a map, I gave it a map.
