Dome Argus is the highest point of the enormous East Antarctic ice sheet. It is a largely flat, high, desolate, and remote plain of ice, which has gradually risen up to a staggering height of 4000 meters.

If you accept that the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific oceans all touch the shores of Antarctica (like this site does), Dome Argus is one of only 2 triple-ocean divide points on earth.
