The research approach used is qualitative research with an analysis unit based on the six elements of geotourism box concept, namely process, form, tourism, geobasic, geohistory, and geo +. Primary data acquisition is carried out through field observations and semi-structured interviews on four natural tourist attractions in Bandung Basin, namely Lembang Fault Area, Pawon Cave, White Crater, and Mount Tangkubanparahu Natural Tourism Park. While secondary data is obtained through the desk study method. Data analysis methods use qualitative content analysis method and descriptive analysis, this analysis is used as a method in the study to consider the shape of the data and information collected in the form of interviews, survey and official documents that require techniques to understand and interpret the data.
