    The number of annual tourists visiting Mt. Baekdu on the far north of the Korean Peninsula passed the 1 million mark for the first time last year.

    China's Mt. Baedu management committee reported that a total of 1.4 million tourists visited the scenic mountain last year, up 60 percent from 2010. Consequently, tourism revenue for 2011 also jumped more than 75 percent from a year earlier to 370 million yuan, or roughly US$60 million.

    The committee cited the strong response to various festivities organized to promote the mountain resort and expanded air routes from Shanghai.
