Broad Peak 8,047 m 26,401 ft. is the 12th highest mountain in the world is on the border of Pakistan and China. it is part of the Gasherbrum massif one half mile from K2. Its summit is nearly one mile long thus its name.

While the Duke was exploring K2's glaciers and surrounding ranges on the south, west and east, Sella and his team, despite the mists and fogs that repeatedly covered the peaks and walls, succeeded in getting views of the valleys and mountains about K2 and making a network of photogrammetric panoramas and angles read on the tacheometer. Sella made a series of spectacular panoramas of the Baltoro glacier and surrounding peaks, capturing 25 miles of the glacier's 36 miles from the foot of the Gasherbrum down to a point close to the snout. He made photographs from elevations above 22,000 ft.
