community-based tourism and Dieng Kulon


The development of a tourist village is one way to alleviate poverty in rural areas, especially in Dieng Kulon Village, Banjarnegara Regency, Central Java Province. This tourist village is following rural communities' characteristics because it has a community-based tourism development strategy. The community must play an active role in the tourist village's efforts to improve welfare with its potential and capabilities. The development of tourist villages has resulted in a phenomenon, namely that not all tourist villages are developing rapidly. This phenomenon also occurs in Dieng Kulon Banjarnegara, even though Dieng Kulon Village in the Dieng Plateau has the same culture, tourism potential, and social potential of its people. This study aims to explore the potential for community-based tourism in the village of Dieng Kulon, Banjarnegara. This research uses a descriptive qualitative approach. In this study, Respondents were village heads, heads of farmer groups, community leaders, and community activists of tourism. This research shows that tourism in Dieng Kulon Village has the potential to be developed through CBT. Potential tourist attractions that can be featured in Dieng Kulon village are natural tourism, cultural tourism, and culinary tourism.
