At the time when we in Ukraine are experiencing the Euromaydan, I would like to show another Maydan, which is a mounting pass over a spur of the Gissar Range at the upper reaches of the Yaghnob River in Ayni District of Sughd Province in Tajikistan. Its altitude is 2980 m above sea level.
GPS coordinates: 39.155635 Lat, 69.231885 Long, 2980 m

Nice view of this lush green meadows. They contrast well against the barren jagged peaks and the blue sky. The relaxed bikers add vital life to the scene. One funny thing is that in Bengali also we call these meadows 'maidan' inter mingling of cultures I suppose. Nice shot with good colors, light and clarity. Thanks for sharing.

looking at other photos I already thought that you switched from bike to the horse but I see bikes again :) They are in fact a lovely foreground and they add some extra color to this lovely mountain panorama. Great natural colors, it must have been a fantastic trip.
Happy New Year!

This is really a very beautiful and exciting view. Must be quite an adventure to travel here by bike. It looks like this company have chosen a very pleasant place for a rest here. A very attractive picture.

Great capture of an adventurous trip

A wonderful landscape with the sharp peaks that border the green undulating grounds.
A fantastic mountain scenery to travel but by bike this will not be easy.
Best regards, Paul
