Trivor is one of the high peaks of the Hispar Muztagh, a subrange of the Karakoram range in the Gilgit-Baltistan of Pakistan. Its height is often given as 7,728 metres, but this elevation is not consistent with photographic evidence.[1] The height given here is from a Russian 1:100,000 topographic map.[2]

There have been only two successful climbs of this peak; the first ascent was in 1960 by a British-American party.[3]
