he map kit adapted to hiking is rather simple. You may choose between two scales:1:50 000 and 1:25 000
On the first ones, one centimeter represents 500 meters and on the second only 250 meters.
hile 1:25 000 is finer, more precise, the 1:50 000
covers more space and allows to have a good idea on everything around. For long hikes you can without any problem use a 1:50 000
scale map. For difficult climbing or off-trail hikes you must have 1:25 000
Both often complement one another.
