The answer is:

MOUNT EVEREST!

To find this, first identify the six images placed beneath the 'mountain' shape. Each of these...

...contributes two letters to the answer. They are (row by row):

A logo for the UN;
The prefix RE, as in 'RETURN' (for example);

A picture of ST. John the Baptist;
A picture of Eve in the Garden of Eden, from whose name we extract the second and third letters: VE;

A reversed movie poster for the film E.T., providing us with TE;
A reversed image of an 'Om' symbol, giving MO.

We can then:

rearrange these two-letter chunks in the order MO, UN, TE, VE, RE, ST and concatenate them to give the name of a mountain in Asia (indicated by the mountainous shape and the title): MOUNT EVEREST!

Being the tallest mountain in the world, this 'little' puzzle is heavily laden with irony - paha!
