Peak Shater (eastern) is a mountain peak, 6637 meters above sea level, located in the Tengri-Tau Mountain range, next to the Khan-Tengri peak, whose height is over 7000 meters above sea level. In the main ridge of the Tengri tau ridge, at a distance of 6 kilometers to the east and a little north of the top of Khan-Tengri, there is a peak under the common name of Shatry. In turn, the peak loses its individuality and is divided into two independent peaks - the Western and Eastern Shater.
