Help with weather & visability over high grorund

I have been following your recent Flightnights on YouTube and I thought I might had a suggestion for a flight.

Following a Gardeners World on Sunday morning, which featured the Drakensberg Mountains in Lesotho, which has a lot of mountains, river valleys etc so I have been trying to create a flight taking some of this scenery in but I am having problems with the visability (seems to be in permanent mist). I have tried changing flight date to their summer, messing with the weather but cannot get a clear day to test the route out without bumping into cum-lo-granit.

I have zipped up the information done to date (routes and Google Earth files).

I thought it could have promise as the film on Gardeners World showed stunning mountains

Have you tried setting the weather manually to "Core high pressure "?

Have you tried changing to different weather presets and then changing back again. Also try debug>Reload Scenery

"Core high pressure " tried yesterday which was the same poor visibility (mist/fog) and just tried it today again (more time to play) and today there was a Metar for the start airport and I could see the ground and mountains still a bit hazy but more I could flight the route and avoiding the hill tops.
Disappointed that FXLT Letseng Diamond Mine was not in the scenery, looks impressive in openstreetmap/google earth and the small airfields are also missing.
Fun doing the research and playing with the planning software

Try out this:

Environment/Weather Conditions/Advanced Settings
and then set 'Air Pollution* to 'clean' and try different settings for
'Max Visibility'.
