Name Latitude Longitude Feature Type
Borg Massif (USA) 72° 45' 00.0" S 3° 30' 00.0" W Massif
Name ID: 122742 Place ID: 1610

A spectacular mountain massif, about 30 mi long and with summits above 2,700 m, situated along the NW side of the Penck Trough in Queen Maud Land. The parallel, ice-filled Raudberg Valley and Frostlendet Valley trend northeastward through the massif, dividing its summits into three rough groups. The feature was photographed from the air by the GerAE (1938-39), but was not correctly shown on the maps by the expedition. It was mapped in detail by Norwegian cartographers from surveys and air photos by NBSAE (1949-52). They named it Borgmassivet (the castle massif) in association with Borg Mountain, its most prominent feature.
