The Nun Kun mountain massif consists of a pair of Himalayan peaks: Nun, 7,135 m (23,409 ft) and its neighbor peak Kun, 7,077 m (23,218 ft).
Nun is the highest peak in the part of the Himalayan range lying on the Indian side of the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir. (There are higher peaks in the Indian part of the Karakoram range.)
The massif is located near the Suru valley, about 250 km (160 mi) east of Srinagar, the state capital.
Kun is located north of Nun and is separated from it by a snowy plateau of about 4 km (2.5 mi) in length.
Pinnacle Peak, 6,930 m (22,736 ft), is the third highest summit of the group.
