    Journey to the Transantarctic Mountains can be the most vivid, complicated and impressive adventure of your life. There are many unclimbed peaks and fantastic landscapes. Most of mountains in Antarctica are not active volcanoes, and they are not very dangerous. Climbing in the Antarctica mountains can be daunting at times, however, because to the often frigid temperatures and strong winds. Here the largest scientific continent base station McMurdo is located, where many of the expeditions starts. In fact it's a real town - it has buildings, roads, cars and even lampposts and post-office. Antarctica might not be the most highly visited destination in the world, but the few tourists who manage to make it here every year would likely recommend it without delay.
