Well, I suppose you could use AutoCAD at a pinch using Land Development Desktop or similar to create the terrain but this is really designed for technical use, cut/fill calculations etc.
You could use 3DS VIZ with the terrain object and an environment map or using one of the many landscape plug-ins.
But the best option is to use a specific application. There are a number to choose from. I use Bryce (http://www3.corel.com/cgi-bin/gx.cgi/AppLogic+FTContentServer?pagename=Corel/Product/Details&id=CC1M72VRBAC) but you should also look at Vue d'Esprit (http://www.e-onsoftware.com/), World Construction Set (http://www.3dnature.com/) and World Builder (http://www.digi-element.com/awb3_overview.shtml). Also, check out Terragen (http://www.planetside.co.uk/terragen/), it's free!
