Khaney is a village in Baltistan, Pakistan.

Jon Krakauer, the author of Into Thin Air, said that Greg Mortenson, author of Three Cups of Tea, originally planned to build a school in Khaney. To support his point, he referred to a 1994 newsletter of the American Himalayan Foundation, where Mortenson asked for funds to build a school in Khaney. Instead Mortenson built his school in Korphe.[1]
