Antarctica is a continent that covers 10% of the earth's surface. The highest average temperature is well below zero F. This is also the location for the lowest temperature ever recorded on earth. Antarctica is the coldest continent.
The highest point on the Antarctic continent is Vinson Massif at 16,050', or 4,897 meters. Because not all of Antarctica has been mapped to identify its absolute lowest elevation, what we do know is that the Bentley Subglacial Trench reaches 2,555 metres below sea level.
The highest point is Vinson Massif, which measures 4,892 metres above sea level. Since not all of the continent under the ice sheet has been measured, the lowest point found to date is the Bentley sub-glacial trench, at 2,555 metres below sea level.
At 6768 meters (22,200 feet), Huascaran is the highest mountain in Peru. It is also the highest mountain in the tropics. Lowest point in Peru: At 34 (111 feet) meters below sea level, the Bayovar depressioin in the Sechura desert of Northern Peru is the lowest point.
