Lukpilla Brakk is granit tower which is located in the mountain ridge between Uzum Brakk Glacier and Biafo Glacier. Altitude of summit is rather small (for Karakoram) but from base it looks like a stunning spire. Mountain is made by two diferent types of granit. Lower part is from untypical (but solid) dark red granit, which probably gives name for the place called "Marpo" (in Balti language it means red). Higher part is from best orange "Chamonix" granit.

Very impressive is 1200 m high west face, which culminates on first from many summits. On this pinnacle lies bus sized jammed block. Someone call it "Bus Stop Summit". Second top on the summit ridge is probably main. Official elevation of mountain is 5380 m, but real may be around 5600 m.
