The Transantarctic Mountains - 1
South Pole Station - Antarctica

The Transantarctic Mountains, about 80 minutes flying time from the South Pole.

The Transantarctic Mountains are one of the world's longest chains of mountains, they form the boundary between east and West Antarctica, they are about 3,500 km (2,200 miles) long and vary from 100-300 km (62-186 miles) in width. They rise to over 4,500m (14,700ft) above sea level.

Most of the mountain chain is buried beneath the ice with the peaks showing through, in some places they are only visible as isolated nunataks.
