Does anybody know if there is a topographical map of the Simien Mountains on sale anywhere?
I looked at Stanfords and could find none .

Hey Simone, Hows it going????
In 2002 we got a mighty fine A4 photocopy of the route absolutley free from our tour leader Carey (Hi Carey if you're still with the Firm).
This is a great trip, you'll have a good time.
This is a rather late response... anyway, thanks Imran and hi Tim, nice to hear from you again (see I did go to the Simiens after all!)
Long after my return, I can say that the map on sale at Stanfords can also be bought in Debark - it is cheaper and buying there the profit goes to a local business so that's what I'd recommend doing.
I would consider the map a nice reminder of the trek - as a topo map it is virtually useless, detail is too scarce.
