Like all other places in the world, Antarctica is one of the beautiful places in the mother earth. The place is tranquil and serene and full of peace. It is the coldest place of the world. Not only the coldest, it is also the driest continent of the world.
Antarctica is the fifth continent as it comes to how much large area it contains. Although this is a place full of ice, this is actually a desert. But due to severe cold, nobody can recognize it at first glance. This is situated near southern part which overlays the South Pole.
Antarctica is an independent continent, though there were so many claims regarding the different portions of the continent by numerous countries. The 1958 Antarctica Treaty holds the rights and responsibilities of this scarcely populated area. They have declared and managed to design this as an international research zone. There is no one living in this cold area unless the researchers. There are almost 1000 to 4000 researchers living in their laboratories, depending on the season.
