Geomorphosites and geomorphological landscape concepts have newly entered the realm of tourism and geography emphasizing the spotting of specific and valuable locations for tourism. These geomorphosites by combining cultural, historical and ecological heritage offer great potentials for development of sustainable tourism. Kavir National Park is one of places that embody many diverse ranges of geomorphosites. In this article we attempt to assess the Geomorphotourism potentials of geomorphosites in Kavir National park, by using Pereira method and field works. Employing two criteria of scientific and complementary values, we identify the geomorphology value of the site from the tourism perspective. Also the management criterion is obtained via adding the conservation and usage values. Final value of geomorphosites is achieved through the sum of two main values mentioned above. Findings are of great significance for tourism planning and investment in tourism development. It is demonstrated that among different landforms in Kavir national park, sand dunes with the score of 14.38 own the highest value. At the end, we propose that every planning and development in tourism in this area be done with a good consideration of sustainability issues.
