    The deepest point in Earth is located in the western Pacific Ocean.  This point is called The Mariana Trench.  This Trench is near Japan (11" 21' North latitude and 142" 12' East longitude).  It was created by ocean to ocean subduction, a phenomena in which a plate topped by oceanic crust is sub-ducted beneath another plate topped by oceanic crust.  There is another deep part in the Mariana Trench, it's called The Challenger Deep.  It's 11 km deep!!!!  This means that the Challenger Deep is in the mantle of the Earth.  

    Compared to Mt.Everest, the highest mountain in the world, located in India, The Challenger Deep is the deepest point in Earth, located near Japan at 
11" 21' North latitude and 142" 12' East longitude, by far, it's the deepest point to be found on Earth, at 11,035 metres below sea level.
