Abstract: 

In this research, the Geosite of Sahoo Mountain has been investigated using Geosite Assessment Model (GAM) which considers providing sustainable planning and natural heritage management and rendering them to tourism targets. It is based on previously- mentioned assessment models and proposed to evaluate the geo sites through two groups of main values and supplementary value. In the general assessment of Shahoo Mountain, the geo sites including Ghoori Ghal'e Cave, Sirvan Valley and Ravansar Spring got the high score of 20.5, 16.75 and 16.5, respectively and were identified as the best geo sites for geo-tourism purposes. The results show that they involve almost suitable scientific-educational and aesthetic value; however, they are not in good conditions in terms of tourism values of the studied regional geo sites. Also, from a conservation perspective, no active protection is done and as they are unknown, they become safe. Finally, it can be said that besides other natural and cultural values of Shahoo Mountain, it can provide an appropriate perspective to develop sustainable development of geo-tourism.
