(near Marianas Islands, a.k.a. Ladrones Islands, northwestern Pacific Ocean) (depth below sea level)
The Challenger Deep, at the southern end of the Marianas Trench, reaches a depth of 10.902 km below sea level. There has been only one manned expedition to the bottom of Challenger Deep — a 1960 voyage that took 4 hours and 48 minutes to reach the bottom.
