The Baltoro Muztagh is a subrange of the Karakoram mountain range. It is home to K2 (8,611 m/28,251 ft), the second highest mountain in the world, and to three other eight thousand metre peaks. It is located on the north and east sides of the Baltoro Glacier, in Baltistan, part of the Northern Areas of Pakistan; and in Xinjiang, China. The crest of the range forms part of the Pakistan-China border.

The following is a table of the peaks in the Baltoro Muztagh which are over convert|7200|m|ft|-1 in elevation and have over convert|500|m|ft|-1 of topographic prominence.(This is a common criterion for peaks of this stature to be independent.)

There are a number of lower summits near the tongue of the Baltoro Glacier which are striking rock towers, and are famous for their aesthetic, difficult climbing. These include:
