Highest and Deepest Point of the Earth

What is the Highest and Deepest Point on the Earth?

Mount Everest is called the world's highest mountain because it has the highest elevation above sea level. We could also say that it has the "highest altitude". The peak of MountEverest is 8,850 meters (29,035 feet) above sea level. No other mountain on Earth has a higher altitude.

Located in the western Pacific east of the Philippines, the Mariana Trench is the deepest natural point on Earth, and is where James Cameron made his record-breaking dive.

Measuring more than 1,500 miles long and 43 miles wide (on average), the Mariana Trench is a deep, black hole at the bottom of the Ocean – where life is sparse and sounds are silent.

The Kola Superdeep Borehole is the deepest artificial point on Earth. Located in Zapolyarny, Russia, the borehole is the result of a scientific drilling project of the Soviet Union, which sole purpose was the drill as deep as possible into the Earth’s crust.

Starting in 1970, the project was abandoned in 1989 when it no longer became possible to combat the unbearable heat; by the time they had reached a depth of 33,000 ft (10,000 metres), the temperature was at a sweltering 180 degrees celsius (356 F)!
