This map was compiled, designed, produced and publish by Liam
P. O'Brien, USA.
Topographic information was extracted from the IGM 1:50,000 scale maps, the Defense
Mapping Agency 1:100,000 scale maps and the Club Alpino Alemán 1: 50,000 scale maps of
the Cordillera Real Sud and Norte.
The map shows small and large towns, principal and secondary
roads, tracks, trails, Inca trails, railroads, lakes, rivers, and dams. The map is color
coded by terrain type (woodland, scrub, open, urban, glacier, and flood plain). Contour
elevations are shown in meters.
Some of the mountains shown in the map are:
- Huayna Potosí
Note that the map shows all the Cordillera Real mountains
north of Illimani.
A detailed guide to the Inca Trail is printed in the back
of the map. Information is provided for the Choro, Takesi and Yunga Cruz Inca trails. The
Guide features information on starting and ending points, transportation schedules and
fees, itineraries as well as trekking directions.

Liam O'Brien's career as a cartographer spans twenty years,
fifteen of which were spent in Latin America doing mapping work for the Inter American
Geodesic Survey. Between 1993-96, Mr. O'Brien worked in Bolivia at the Instituto
Geográfico Militar creating the national mapping series.
During his stay in Bolivia he hiked and climbed extensively
in the Cordillera Real and published an article about it in the 1996 American Alpine
Journal. He also measured the heights of the Sajama and Illimani mountains using GPS
When he was not climbing the Andes, Mr. O'Brien was traveling
with his family around Bolivia. He completed road trips from La Paz to Beni, Pando, Santa
Cruz, Argentina, Paraguay and Chile.
Liam O'Brien just visited Bolivia and finish the Second
Edition of the Cordillera Real Recreation Map.
