Description (see definition): 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 German Antarctic Expedition (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 Norwegian-British-Swedish Antarctic Expedition (NBSAE) (1949-52). They named it Borgmassivet (the castle massif) in association with Borg Mountain, its most prominent feature.
