Pik Pobeda is the highest mountain in the Tian Shan, and the most northerly 7,000-meter peak in the world. It is a massive dome, covered in snow and ice, located just ten miles south of the range's second highest peak, Khan Tengri (7010 m./ 22,998 ft.). Although Pobeda is 1500 feet higher than its neighbor to the north, Khan Tengri was believed to be the highest peak in the range until Pobeda's discovery in 1946. Pobeda's longstanding obscurity is testimony to its extreme remoteness.
