The Gamburtsev Mountains

The Gamburtsev Mountain range is one of the largest on earth - approximately the same size as the European Alps.  The mountains reach about 9,000 feet in height -- but -- none of them have ever been climbed by a human.

Why not?  And where is this mountain range, btw... ?

Answer in the BBC's Science and Environment section.  You learn something every day.


  1. I have not looked at the link, but I am guessing that it is underwater.

  2. Hmm... under ice then.

  3. Wow, just visited the link. That's pretty crazy. Did not know that that even existed. See that's why I like this blog! :)
