This view shows K-2 Mountain (upper center) in Pakistan, the worlds second highest peak, as seen from the International Space Station.

The mountain (8,611 m; 28,251 ft high) is sometimes referred to as Savage Mountain, because of the difficulty of its ascent and the many lives lost in attempting its climb.
