The map is of Qinling mountains in China.
It is famous as a natural barrier which devide China to north and south.
The road passing through the mountains is called Shu Roads and is known by its danger (see also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shu_Roads).
A famous poet in Tang Dynasity of China, Lie Bai, compose poetry this road as
"The daunting route into the region of Shuis more daunting than climbing the sky"(from http://www.jonche.com/Cms/Content/a1ac0 ... 9bfb5.aspx).

Nowadays, it is rumored that Chinese Army reserves most of their nuclear weapons in subway below the Mt. Taibei which is highest in the mountains.

* Airfields of each side of mountains are fictional because I can't find fitting ones in this area.
* This is texturized map, so it is working with only YS ver. 20150425 or later.

For now, only airfields are on the map. They are from my "The Alps" map originally.
all ground objects are default ones, I think.

Amazing work, K2W.

This is the kind of work I'd love to see in the Japan Extended Map, given we can find someone to continue from where Abel left off.
