Man, you went past me again!
Seriously, didn't you see me sitting here?
Drinking water quietly then,
Reminds me of the land of some deer...

I got confused in these mountains
I'll go backwards just for you, my friend.
And I don't know if this riddle has an end,
But can you guess who I am?

I think you may be

Lap

Man, you went past me again!

To lap is to overtake by one complete circuit

Seriously, didn't you see me sitting here?

the waist to the knees when in a sitting position

Drinking water quietly then

animals may lap water

Reminds me of the land of some deer...

lapland :)

I got confused in these mountains

in the ALPs

I'll go backwards just for you, my friend.

pal - reversed

And I don't know if this riddle has an end

The riddle might not end as it's just a lap and number of laps are not mentioned - suggestion inspired by @Techidiot (thanks!) - any mistake is my lapse.

The title

a lap of honour - an extra lap at the end of a race a winner may perform - just for congratulations
