Indonesian Borneo (Kalimantan) Topo maps

Postby backyard_botanist » Mon 07 Nov, 2016 7:55 pm

Planning a trek from east to west coast of Indonesian borneo (Kalimantan) but am having problems finding any descent topo maps. Anyone had any luck finding descent maps for this area or other areas of Indonesia?

Cheers,

You could ask http://sandakanspirit.com/
They do the Sandakan death march. They have Australian guides.
I walk, shuffle then hobble.

I think you will struggle to get accurate contour maps of Indonesia - they tend to be a little paranoid about invasion.

I have a 1:2 million map of Kalimantan and a 1:800,000 map of KalBar showing kampung, roads etc.

KalBar

What sort of 'trek' are you planning? something like Eric Hansen?

I lived and worked in Pontianak for a couple of years and travelled inland a few times as far as Sintang.
