Jeju Olle Foundation and the Jeju Tourism Organization (JTO) are poised to sign a deal with the government of Ulaanbaatar, the Mongolian capital, on June 16.
JTO chief Choi Kab-yeol and Jeju Olle Foundation head Suh Myung-suk signed a business pact for development of the Mongolian Olle Trail on June 8.
As part of the agreement, the Foundation will plan a series of courses in the landlocked East Asian state. It will manage the route with the JTO, which will be responsible for raising funds.
The plan is part of a deal between Mongolia and Jeju to boost tourism and cultural exchanges.
Since construction of the Olle paths began in 2006, the Foundation has developed 422kms of its walkways along the island's coastline.
The Mongolian Olle is set to open in the first half of 2017. The new route will be the first in a landlocked country, although it will not be first time an Olle has opened outside of Jeju.
In 2012, Jejul Olle Foundation opened the Kyushu Olle in Japan, comprising four sister routes in Takeo, Okubungo, Iwo Jima and Ibuski.
