In Tucumán, San Javier is an ideal spot for a soft launching. Loma Bola is at 1.330 m. and presents a 800 m. slop. Here, the weather changes unexpectedly and the flight altitude is about 1,000 m.
Cuesta Vieja, 40 km. from Chilecito at the Paimán Range, has excellent conditions for paragliding. The launching is at 1.550 m. over sea level. Oriented to the East, it permits flights that can last a few hours and, in summer, Chilecito can be reach.
Cerro Arco, in Mendoza, is 1.700 m. over sea level. Even though flights take place during the whole year, the best season is after October, featuring ridge soaring and thermal flying.
Villa de Merlo and its neighbor towns - like Carpintería - are the preferred places for landing. Launching is at 2.020 m. above sea level and it has a 900 m. slope. This region in San Luis has mild weather the whole year and it is a permanent venue for paragliding tournaments. It is also a good scenery for ala delta.
The most famous scenery for paragliding is Cuchi Corral, in Córdoba. The launching is at 1.080 m over sea level. Flights are mostly thermodynamics, reaching an altitude of 500 m. Another destination for cross-country flying in Córdoba is Las Gemelas hill, near Capilla del Monte.
At the north of the City of Mar del Plata, the most expert gliders make attempts at the Varese Bay. Tandil, 179 km. from Mar del Plata, has a soft ramp.
Piltriquitrón mount (2.235 m.) is a stone mass at the El Bolsón valley, hour and half from San Carlos de Bariloche. The light in the summer allows glider reaching altitudes of up to 3.000 m. Other options, also in winter, are Otto and Catedral mounts.
