Tirich Mir is the highest mountain in the Hindu Kush. It is a cluster of rocky, ice-covered pyramids, located due south of the second highest peak, Noshaq. Tirich Mir is south of the range's main crest, and projects entirely into Pakistan, whereas much of the Hindu Kush marks the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.
