Iqbal Top stands at an elevation of approximately 4,693 m above sea level. The name Iqbal Top was given to it after the name of a Famous Mountain Guide from Kanday Village, Muhammad Iqbal Qadri who discovered it in 1998. Iqbal Top offers panoramic views of many mountain Peaks including all four 8 thousander peaks, the Mighty K2, Broad Peak, and Gasherbrum I and Gasherbrum II.

These peaks include K6, K7, GIV, GV, Diriftika Peak Amin Brak etc. There are various trekking routes and climbing expeditions that start or pass through Iqbal Top.
