The height of main peak is 8047 meters/26,401ft.
It is called Broad Peak because of its breadth at

above the Concordia at the heart of the Karakorum
range. It lies on the Pakistan/China frontier
between K2 and the Gasherbrum peaks and was first
climbed by four Austrians in 1957, including Kurt
Diemberger and Herman Buhl.
