(P3D 3.4) Venezuela, Canaima to "Tepui" table mountains

Recommended Posts

P3D 3.4, Global Ultimate mesh, ORBX Open LC South America, Carenado C208 EX

With the new ORBX landclass for South America now available, it’s time to explore some of the many nice places there.

This trip takes me to Venezuela. I depart from Canaima SVCN and head south-east. It’s not a very long trip, and the area to explore looks on Google Earth like this:

I will try to find a freeware airport for this location

Most impressive

First I will head to the southern most point of the table mountains, before I turn north and dive into the area

Somewhere here must be the famous “Angel Falls”

Here we have Angel Falls on the left side and this is what Wikipedia has to say about it: Angel Falls (Spanish: Salto Ángel) is the world's highest uninterrupted waterfall, with a height of 979 meters (3,212 ft) and a plunge of 807 meters (2,648 ft). The waterfall drops over the edge of the Auyán-tepui mountain in the Canaima National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage site in the Gran Sabana region of Bolívar State. The height figure 979 metres (3,212 ft) mostly consists of the main plunge but also includes about 400 metres (0.25 mi) of sloped cascade and rapids below the drop and a 30-metre (98 ft) high plunge downstream of the talus rapids

Maybe the FSX scenery is compatible (svcn_fsx.zip in the library)?

Very scenic though. This reminds me to a Science-Fiction novel, unfortunately I've forgotten the title and author. A nerdy professor has the theory to find living fossiles - dinosaurs! - on top of one table mountain - and finally he succeeds...

Hi, bernd1151:

You can find very good sceneries at the following link: http://davidmaldonado684.blogspot.com/

They are donationware, via PayPal. I have all of them. They're made by my fellow countrymen David Maldonado, a very well known FS enthousiast here in Venezuela. Enjoy!!!

Cheers, Ed

Thanks for the link, Harald. FSX scenery does also work in P3D. Was that science fiction novel the basis for the Jurassic Park movies?

I was there in 1990. Reminds me of the real thing!

Wow, that's wonderful. I have explored all of Asia, but I have never been to South America
