Broad Peak is the 12th highest mountain on Earth at 8,047 meters or 26,400 feet. The first ascent of Broad Peak was made on June 9th, 1957 by an Austrian team. The peak was originally named K3 before it was discovered that the summit was over 1.5 kilometers (1 mile) long when it became known as Broad Peak.
