It is a shorter version of the full name, Jikjishimchaeyojeol, the world's first book produced by the metal printing method. The book is about Buddhism and the name means reaching the mind of the Buddha.
''Jikji'' also means loneliness in the local Pakistani dialect, apt for the location of the mountain peak. Villagers added their support for the peak's name by writing a recommendation letter.
As Jikji Peak has been acknowledged by the Pakistani government, the name will soon be seen on all maps of the Himalayas.
