Best flying is at the southern slopes of the mountain range, that limits the wide valley to the north. The highest summit of this range is 5200 m high. The main launching point is near Huyllana at 3400 m, taking a left turn halfway on the road from Cochabamba to Sacaba uphill to the north. Landing in the valley at 2800 m.
Launch in the Cochabamba valley. To the right in the background the city. At the small oblong hill that is surrounded by the city local pilots flew as well. Apparently good thermals, but strictly forbidden because of the airport nearby.
View during the flight towards the east. Cochabamba is only the third biggest city in the country, but the fruitful valley around it forms the most densely settled department of Bolivia.

All Souls' Day altar in the Plaza de Armas, Cochabamba. During the protests in October 2003, which led to the president's abdication, more than 80 men, women and children died, when the army was given the order to shoot into the crowd.
