Question G discussion
Looking around at peaks with a large prominence, someone mentioned Nanga Parbat (8,126m) as being the largest free standing mountain. Checking it out, there's a large grassland area nearby (Fairy Meadow at 3300m). The map shows it's about 20km long by 10km across, and it stands 4600m up from its col. It has a few glaciers and lakes, but I haven't found a contour map yet to know their altitudes. (Photos! Link!) It marks the end of the Himalayas, so that could work with Knurlkyth being alone and disconnected from the Ornthrond range.

It has some of the criteria, but I'm not sure about the high pastures, and it kind of matches some of your description above. Anyway, it could serve to give an idea to imagine Knurlkyth, and other suggestions are still welcome.

And Machu Picchu as a comparison and inspiration

Seems Google provides a topographic map, which is nice. But I had to Google for it, I can't find the switch when looking at the map normally. Don't forget to play with the 3D satellite view either.
