Sherpi Kangri is a mountain peak in the Karakoram Range. It lies six km south of Ghent Kangri (7,380 m) and ten km northwest of Saltoro Kangri (7,742 m).

Sherpi Kangri I is the higher, western summit at 7380 m. Sherpi Kangri II at approximately 7100 m is further east.

Both summits are on the Actual Ground Position Line. Sherpi Kangri II was climbed by American climbers in August 2019 after obtaining permission from Islamabad (since the peaks is in Pakistan and nobody ever has obtained any permission from India to climb this peak which further proves the possession of the area is with Pakistan.)
