Reo Purgyil, sometimes known as Leo Pargial and Leo Pargil is a mountain peak at the southern end of the Zanskar Range in the Western Himalaya area of the Himalayas. It is located on the Himachal Pradesh and Tibetan border in the Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh, India. At 6,816 m Reo Purgyil is the highest mountain peak in the state of Himachal Pradesh. Geologically the peak is a dome structure and is part of a great massif that rises above the Satluj River (Sutlej) and overlooks the western valley of Tibet. The Spiti River, a right hand tributary of the Satluj, drains the northern face of the massif.

The highest peak is often obscured by clouds and is located about 2 km to the south of Peak 6791, a well known slightly shorter twin brother with a height of 6,791 m. Peak 6791 is widely referred to as Leo Pargial and has sufficient topographic prominence to be classified as a mountain in its own right. Nako village is the last road head for this expedition, located on the slopes of the mountain, close to the India-Tibet border.
