Annual Japan-China-Korea student exchanges through mountain climbing held in South Korea

 

The 8th annual Japan-China-Korea student exchange program through mountain climbing was held successfully in Seoul and its vicinity from August 6 to 12. Forty people – 27 students and 13 staffers – from Japan, China and South Korea participated.

 

In the exchange program, the students together received climbing lessons, climbed rock walls of a mountain outside Seoul, and competed with each other over their skills in a climbing contest. During their stay, they also visited the mountaineering museum, enjoyed sight-seeing and took part in various exchange programs.

 

The Japanese Alpine Club and its Chinese and South Korean counterparts have been organizing annual student exchanges through mountain climbing alternately in their countries to promote mutual understanding and friendship among the youths.
