Mount Vinson is the highest peak in Antarctica, at 4,892 metres.

It is located in the north part of Vinson Massif’s summit plateau.

Mount Vinson is more than 1,200 Km from the South Pole, making it the most remote of the Seven Summits. It was also the last discovered, last climbed and last named of the Seven Summits.
