Diran(Urdu: دیرن‎)is a mountain in the Karakoram range in Nagar Valley and Bagrote valley Gilgit, Pakistan. This 7,266-metre (23,839 ft) pyramid shaped mountain lies to the east of Rakaposhi (7,788m) lies to south of bilshar dubani (6,143m)

Diran is a dangerous mountain also called the third killer mountain in Pakistan as its snow faces are often laden with avalanche prone snow slopes and so far causing many events resulting in dozens of deaths.

Diran Peak is located in Bagrote Valley Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan; the Bagrote valley extends between 2,500 and 4500 meters above sea level. The principle locality of the valley is Farfu (formerly called Furpui), also known for its spectacular landscape and high mountains such as Rakaposhi 7788 m, Diran 7266 m[4], Dubani 6138 m and the summit of Fafuraj, Miar Peak, Godeli and many other peaks that surpass six thousand meters above sea level. Doboi glaciers, Gargo, Yunay, Boi Pharai, Hurangi and Raka Poshi surround the valley from where the rivulets forming the Bagrot River are traced.[5] The River Bagrot passes by all the villages of the valley, including Jalalabad and Oshikhandass and merges with the Gilgit River. Diran was first climbed in 1968 by three Austrians: Rainer Goeschl, Rudolph Pischinger and Hanns Schell. Earlier attempts by a German expedition in 1959 and an Austrian expedition in 1964 were unsuccessful.[2][3]

Bagrote Valley (Urdu: وادی بگروٹ‎) is a valley in the Karakoram Mountain range in the Gilgit–Baltistan region of northern Pakistan.[2] [3] River Bagrote flows through the valley from north towards southwest of the valley, supplies water to Jalalabad and Oshikhandass and merges with the Gilgit River.
