Laila Peak is one of the most fascinating peaks among the Karakoram Range. It is located in Hushe valley District Ghanche, Baltistan. It has a distinctive spear-like shape, and the northwest face has a slope of 45 degrees for more than 1500 vertical meters. The first ascent of Laila Peak was made by Simon Yates, Mark Miller and Sean Smith in the late 1980′s.
The peak is synonymous with its west face which drops down at an almost uniform gradient forming a giant ramp. Its northern and eastern sides consist of contrasting steep granite. The mountain is located east of the Gondogoro valley and west of the Chogolisa valley in the Masherbrum Mountains of Baltistan. Most people have set eyes on the peak after crossing the Gondogoro La from Concordia and K2 base camp.
