A near-vertical rock spire in the western Karakorams near the city of Gilgit in Gilgit-Baltistan, Ladyfinger Peak has a vertical drop of almost 600 metres, from a height of 6,000 metres, and has been the location of some out-of-this-world paragliding experiences.

Imformation

Bublimotin, Bubli Motin, Bublimating or Ladyfinger Peak, is a distinctive rock spire in the Batura Muztagh, the westernmost subrange of the Karakoram range in   Pakistan . It lies on the southwest ridge of the Ultar Sar massif, the most southeasterly of the major groups of the   Batura Muztagh . The whole massif rises precipitously above the Hunza Valley to the southeast. Bublimotin, while having little prominence above the saddle with nearby   Hunza Peak , is particularly notable for being a sharp, relatively snowless rock spire among snow peaks. This, combined with its height above the valley, makes it quite eye-catching; hence the distinctive name. It provides a 600 m (1830 ft) rock climb (with a very serious alpine approach).[2] westernmost subrange of the -  Karakoram range 

Interesting Facts

Lady Finger Peak
An interesting folk tale about the peak (Bubli mo Ting literally means 'Bubli's peak) is that Kisar, a (magical) prince from Baltistan, came to Hunza on one of his adventures and married a princess, a gas, called Bubli. When he received news that his first wife in Baltistan, Langabrumo, had been kidnapped (by a phut or a deu, one story says, but according to Lorimer's book it is a king from another country), he immediately made preparations to set off and rescue her. He took Bubli up to this mountain, (later named after her) and handed her a sack of grain as well as a hen or chicken (a qarqamuts). She must have asked whether - and when - he would be back, and he told her: "Every year give this chicken a single grain to eat. When the sack is empty, I will return. Until that time, stay here." He left,and, they say, Bubli is waiting there still.[3] Lady finger Peak - . hunza guides.com
