While Cyclist 1 takes the shots for a 360°, Cyclist 2 overtakes him - this is why we see him twice.
The mountains all around belong to Range 1 (Himalaya), except for those behind the standing bicycle, belonging to Range 2 (Karakoram).

The little rainbow is a nice detail!

I do not know why, but you made me think Kerouach

"Sal, we gotta go and never stop going till we get there."
"Where we going, man?"
"I don’t know but we gotta go."

Jack Kerouac ("On the road")

For me, the title is misleading and there are three cyclists involved in this picture. Cheers, Martin

Giuseppe: abbastanza azzeccato. In effetti quella salita nacque per caso dopo la notte in cui fummo ospitati dall'ayurvedico; una genesi del tipo:
- Andiamo su fino a quel tornante a fare una foto;
- guarda il prossimo, di lì si dovrebbe vedere meglio la valle nascosta;
- ormai siamo sui terrazzamenti, cerchiamo il paese.
Così si arrivò a Digar, dove non avevamo nulla da fare né da cercare.
Domani sera ci troviamo a raccontare queste storie senza senso nelle valli di Lanzo, in Piemonte...

Martin: yes, perhaps we were three. No trouble, however, since there was space enough for everybody.

Alberto, beim nochmaligen Betrachten komme ich zu der Erkenntnis, daß das Panorama Deine Aussagen noch besser transportieren würde, wenn der Straßenbogen mittig angeordnet wäre.

Heinz: danke für die Anregung. Hier ist ein schneller Versuch:
Da habe ich auch den Asphalt ein wenig geschnitten: Asphalt ist für den Ladakhi Reisenden selten und reizvoll, für den Europäischen Betrachter vielleicht nicht so viel...
LG, Alberto.
