Mountain Tourism will take its own course of time to be completely sustainable as every activity leaves a carbon footprint .The tourism industry has its own share of positive and negative impacts, but the mountain tourism can prosper and work towards becoming more sustainable by following the environmental practices.Therefore,the research topic of the ‘Issues, understanding and interpretation of sustainable tourism development in Shandong Province, China’ have been chosen by the researcher. .3.11The pilot study ‘A pilot study need not be a “scale model” of the planned main-stage evaluation, but should address the main uncertainties that have been identified in the development
6.3.3 Linguistic Ontology The purpose of Linguistic ontology is the Web containing data of sort that are routinely gathered by field of linguistics and different languages can be automatically searched and compared o the World Wide Web. The linguists, indigenous communities, and language learners can be access to resources that are until difficult to obtain now. For linguists, scientific data from world’s languages will be easy to get information in on-line newspaper. For indigenous communities, the Web will be a great mechanism for upholding language as educational resource. For students and educationalists, a new tool will be available for teaching and learning minority and rare languages.
To achieve sustainable economic growth Sri Lankan Government has already recognized “Tourism” as a priority sector. Nevertheless, mass tourism has its own negative effects such as environmental and socio-cultural degradation. Various forms of alternative or sustainable tourism such includes, ‘nature-based tourism’, ‘ecotourism’ and ‘cultural tourism’.

Many sectors participate to contribute to sustainable development, and economy is one of the factors. Sustainable economic growth relies on various sectors, corresponding to the strength of the area. As in developing countries, economy depends enormously on tourism which is mostly related to the local nature and culture. In order to sustain the contribution from tourism, nature and culture must be ensured to be long lasting.
