This user earned the Lowest Geohash Achievement
by reaching a depth of {{{depth}}} at the ({{{latitude}}}, {{{longitude}}}) geohash on [[{{{date}}} {{{latitude}}} {{{longitude}}}|{{{date}}}]].

Add this ribbon if you reach a geohash below sea level!

This ribbon is displayed by the people who have attended the geohash with the lowest terrain elevation. Geohashers who attended a low altitude geohash which is superseded by another at a lower altitude get to keep their ribbons. Underwater and underground geohashing are eligible for this award.

Anyone who can reach a hash within the top three or below 100 meters below sea level should put their hash down for an honorable mention.

There needs to be a proper discussion about what constitutes proper proof because altimeters are usually not so accurate. It's better to take official data.

According to this site http://geology.com/below-sea-level/, the second lowest depression in the world is in Djibouti at 155 meters below sea level. That means that in order to pass the current record without doing anything drastic, a hasher must go to the Dead Sea Depression in Israel and Jordan.
