Posted: Updated:

Hawaii National Park, Hawaii (AP) - Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is forming a sister park relationship with a national park in China.

Wudalianchi National Park is located near China's border with Russia and has 14 volcanoes. Two of the volcanoes are active but aren't currently erupting.

The park is also known for its mineral springs, giant boulders, and lava tubes. About 1 million people visit the park each year.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island has two active volcanoes. Kilauea is currently erupting at two locations while Mauna Loa last erupted in 1984.

The Hawaii park said Friday the new partners will exchange managerial, technical and professional knowledge.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park also has a sister park agreement with Jeju Volcanic Island and Lava Tubes of South Korea.
