This is a place of extremes, like no other place on the planet. Of all the continents in the world, it’s the coldest, windiest, driest and sits at the highest average elevation. There’s not one single permanent human resident here, save for short term researchers and only those animals who are inexplicably able to handle the climate here are able to thrive. However, if you dare to make this trek into this vast wonderland, you’ll be treated to the most incredibly awe-inspiring vistas, gorgeous wildlife and lifetime bragging rights.
