The seventh continent – Amazing Antarctica

The world’s coldest continent, and the hardest to reach, is Antarctica. It’s an amazing & spectacular world! An extremely cold continent lying chiefly within the Antarctic Circle and asymmetrically centered on the South Pole almost entirely below the Antarctic Circle; covered by an icecap averaging 1.6 km (or 13,000 feet?) in thickness.

The total area of Antarctica is 13.9 million square kilometers, with an average altitude of 2350 meters
Antarctica known as the seventh continent, the last region was explored on Earth, the only continent without permanent settlements.

If you are an adventurous person, I believe you’d hope to have chance to explore the continent. Let’s enjoy the spectacular Antarctica through the photos.
