Photographer's Note

Il Passo del Rombo, in tedesco Timmelsjoch (2509 m), è un valico alpino delle Alpi Retiche orientali, al confine fra Italia e Austria, che mette in comunicazione la Val Passiria alla Ötztal.
Dire che è il paradiso dei motociclisti italiani, austriaci e tedeschi non è sufficiente. Da provare.

Timmelsjoch (Italian: Passo del Rombo; German: Timmelsjoch), (el. 8232 ft./2509 m.) is a high mountain pass that creates a link through the Ötztal Alps along the current border between Austria and Italy.
The Timmelsjoch connects the Ötztal valley in the Austrian state of Tyrol to the Passeier valley, later Adige Valley, in the Italian province of South Tyrol, as it bridges the saddle point between the Jochköpfl (10,305 ft./3,141 m.) and Wurmkogl (10,112 ft/3,082 m) peaks to its northeast and southwest, respectively. The pass is sometimes called the "secret passage" because it is little-used compared to the much easier and lower Brenner Pass some 15 miles/25 km to its east, and Reschen Pass some 40 miles/60 km to its west.
To say that is a paradise for bikers Italians, Austrians and Germans is not sufficient. Try it!
Thanks Bobo Cortis that suggested by TE.
