dc.description.abstract East Gojjam Zone has high tourism potentials due to the presence of numerous cultural and natural attractions. But the potential was not explored well. This study is aimed at assessing the tourism potentials, challenges and mechanisms of tourism development using Geographic Information System and remote sensing in East Gojjam Zone. Purposive sampling was employed to identify 70 samples from target populations in East Gojjam Zone. Six criteria and thirteen factors were considered for land suitability evaluation for tourism. These are landscape (visibility, land use land cover), wildlife (wildlife areas), topography (elevation, slope), accessibility (proximity to cultural sites, natural attractions, roads, river and town), vegetation and climate (rainfall, temperature). The result without constraint indicates that 5% of areas were highly suitable and 9% were moderately suitable for tourism. Less and not suitable areas, on the other hand, accounts for 14% and 72%, respectively. The major challenges that militate against the potentials of tourism development in the area include lack of infrastructure, natural resources degradation, lack of tourism professionals, and poor coordination of stakeholders. The potential tourism resources of the area needed to be developed and well promoted in a desired way.
