  • Being open to public;
  • Significant coverage and scope of geoheritage;
  • A natural area of special geological significance and natural beauty;
  • Not a geological park but an area integrated with geology, ecology, natural landscape, local culture and history;
  • Tools to promote earth science and sustainable development through geo-tourism and education;
  • Conserved and managed with a sound protection and management system; and
  • An area where science and local communities were engaged in a mutually beneficial manner.
