The method for conducting research uses a qualitative study approach. Collecting data sources were collected through participatory observation, interviews with various relevant stakeholders, and analysis of forest management and tourism documents. The research sample consisted of forest managers, local community members, tourism entrepreneurs, and visitors involved in this study. The results of this research provide an understanding of implementing the ecotourism concept in forest use in the Mount Dago Natural Tourism Area.
