Mitre Peak is a mountain in the Karakoram range, situated at the confluence of the Baltoro and Godwin Austin glaciers. Its elevation is less than surrounding peaks, which include many of the highest peaks of the world, including K2, Broad Peak, and Gasherbrum I and II.  Despite its smaller stature, Mitre Peak is nevertheless well-known as it rises majestically above Concordia, a central camp for mountaineering expeditions en route to the higher peaks.

Climbing Mitre Peak involves technical climbing on ice/rock, grade V-VII.
