Disclaimer: I'm not even sure if this is an appropriate question for this forum, but I lack the requisite reputation to ask for a judgement call on meta.

I'm in the very early stages of planning a journey through Peru. My thinking so far takes two assumptions. Firstly, I'll be alone. Secondly, I'll be on foot unless I absolutely need to get somewhere quickly. With that in mind, I'm running into the following questions:

  • Where can I find good topographical maps of Peru, preferably an atlas that covers all of Peru's regions?

    Welcome Alex; your question would probably be easier to answer if split into three separate questions. – ppl Jul 5 '16 at 20:11
  • I have no problem with doing that, but thought it might be considered spamming. – Alex Clough Jul 5 '16 at 21:05

    @AlexClough nope. The stack exchange network is all about small manageable chunks so we can give you really good answers. – StrongBad Jul 5 '16 at 21:54
  • Since you've already asked the second bullet as a separate question, perhaps you could remove it from this post? – Roflo Jul 6 '16 at 18:31
  • I still feel like this needs to be two questions. One on maps one on food – user2766 Jul 11 '16 at 9:36

The University of Texas Library has some decent 1:100,000 topo maps of Peru for free download:

  • The TF Outdoors layer on CalTopo also looks good (the Inca Trail is marked on it), and I believe it's based largely on OpenStreetMap data. – requiem Aug 27 '16 at 0:12
  • Just a quick note: 1:100'000 is insufficient for planning mountain treks, especially in areas like the Andes where some paths aren't clearly marked and the terrain is difficult and exposed! – fgysin Dec 5 '17 at 6:45
