Rijab valley، located in 180 Km west of Kermanshah، is considered to be one of the tourists centers of kermanshah because of having various landscapes and monuments. However، the results of one of the field studies of 157 tourist subjects show that the majority of the tourists do not know much about all the attractions of the valley. In a way that about 31.2% of the tourists were not aware of the existence of Ejdeha valley in Rijab. The other 26.8% did not like to visit the sight because of not knowing about its ecotourism beauty although they had passed it many times. 44.6% of the tourists had not even heard the name of the Piran waterfall. While Piran waterfall with nearly 300 meters height is one of the most beautiful and attractive scenes of Rijab valley. Also، only 24.6% of the tourists were aware of the existence of the historical monuments of Sasani''s period there. About 58.8% of them did not know that Rijab had a cave called Roteylan. Based on these facts، we should accept that nearly all tourists were not aware of how these phenomena have formed. This happens at the time when the developing tourism in this region requires the necessity of knowing tourism capacity for the tourist. The aim of this article is to fulfill this need. Therefore in this article، while describing most beautiful phenomena in Rijab applying two field and library methods، tourism capacity of the region has been studied applying SWOT methods.
Keywords: Geotourist, Rijab, Piran waterfall, kerned fault, Hanging syncline
