Antartica, fairytale land with the largest freshwater body, is the giant continent which lies at the bottom of the earth that is ruled by penguins and seals. Antarctica is a place that many travelers and scientists would like to go for the expedition but only few reach.

This coldest place on the earth where the temperature could go to −63 °C (−81 °F) during the winter time but that doesn’t stop inhabitants. Around 1,000 to 5,000 people reside throughout the year at the research stations scattered across the continent.

Antarctica is a de facto condominium, governed by parties to the Antarctic Treaty System (signed by thirty-five countries) that have consulting status. This treaty prohibits from military activities, mineral mining, nuclear explosions and waste disposal but supports scientific research, and protects the continent’s ecozone.
