The beautiful Paiju Peak, or Paiyu Peak, stands near the Trango Towers, which are a group of rock towers that stand in Gilgit-Baltistan. They are north of the Baltoro Glacier, and part of the Baltoro Muztagh, a sub-range of the Karakoram mountain range.

It is named after the Paiju mountain range, which includes Uli Biaho, Uli Biaho Tower, and Uli Biaho Peak.The word Paiju also pronounce Payu, is a Balti word used for salt. Paiju is the name of the camp site and the peak very nearby, and this place is the last source of wood. Despite kerosene and stoves, and signs urging porters not to cut wood, they do so in order to bake bread for the coming days. A small tree-lined stream passes through Paiju, and tent platforms are carved out all over the hillside. Paiju is often crowded and noisy. The tent platforms higher along the stream are quieter with good views.
