World Natural Heritage Jeju and UNESCO Mixed Heritage site Mt. Tai of China recently established a ‘Sisterhood Relationship,’ for the benefit of both. They are hoping it’s the start of a beautiful friendship.
According to the Jeju World Natural Heritage management office, they established a sisterhood relationship with representatives of Mt. Tai National Park management committee of China on March 9.
The sisterhood relationship with China is a second of its kind for Jeju, after the first international tie was created with Hawaii Volcanoes National Park in 2008.
By forming this relationship, both institutions will pursue projects such as international promotion of the World Heritage sisterhood relationship, and the mutual exchange of research results and policies, as well as tour program development and the exchange of tourism industry development.
Mt. Tai of China, which has been acclaimed as the world’s best mountain, was listed as a UNESCO World Mixed Heritage in 1987 and designated as a World Geo Park in 2006.
