I found a great atlas, unfortunately I don't have the name handy, that clearly marks each territory (state,province,district,etc) in each country. Within each territory it shows, what I believe to be, the highest point for most of them. I've been having difficulties verifying if these are in fact the highest points. They may just be a prominent mtn or area in that territory. I thought that some of you might find this interesting. Some of the high points weren't marked. If anyone has any information regarding this or knows of any discrepancies I'd love to know about it. I did see a difference with Suriname. This site shows Wilhelmina Gebergte as the HP. I couldn't find it on my atlas. That may just prove that some of these may be incorrect. It sure would be nice to one day visit one or more of these places. Enjoy.

What a conicidence! My co-worker just returned from her Venezuela and she brought a nice photo book of her country and it had a wonderful map showing the different states. But no mention of the highpoints. Does anyone have that information?

Some of the information you are looking for can be found here:

http://www.venezuelatuya.com/geografia/index.htm

Unfortunately the information is not listed in a table, it has to be extracted out of the text. Look for something like "punto más alto" (=highest point).

Will keep you informed when I shoud find something more appropriat.

Use the Spanish version.

There you find at the bottem end of the page a list of the states under "ESTADOS DE VENEZUELA".

Some of the states have a link to a description, look in the text under "GEOGRAFÍA".

Hope this helps.

During the inactivity of the upcoming holidays, Roger will do doubt create a website for world state highpoints (linked from his world highpoints page). Ha!

I've had a difficult time gathering this information since most of the websites I looked at were in Portuguese and Spanish. I'm looking forward to checking out this site closer over the weekend. You know, work can really get in the way of highpointing! Thanks
