Antarctica surrounded by ocean, is the highest, driest, windiest and coldest continent in the world.
The highest point is approximately 4 km above sea level. There is little exposed rock and, although milions of years ago there was heavy vegetation, today the only plants that grow are very small mosses and lichens.
