Geological heritages are legacies that are gifted to human beings by nature, and human duty is the conservation of these resources for sustainable use. Geomorphoturism is one of the new affiliated disciplines that adheres to nature and, by preserving their local identity, introduces geology and geomorphology phenomena to tourists. Geotourism involves visiting sites with special landforms and special geology for recreation, promenade and make a sense of wonder in watching and understanding of landforms, and finally learning and teaching from nature. Today, geotourism has become a widespread audience. In this research, by identifying and ranking of geomorphosites using Pereira (2010) in Esfarayen county, and evaluating selected geomorphosites, and finally by running of Pereira model, paramount geomorphosites have been identified and ranked, so management and geomorphologic criteria of this attraction have been studied. The documentary and field observations have been used to collect needed information to run this model. The results showed that the highest score in studied sites in the geomorphologic section (6.8) belonged to Bidwaz Dam Lake and the highest score in the management section (7.43) belonged to Nowshiravan Cave. The results of this research can be an appropriate guide for managers and planners to identify and plan for attracting tourists, and also help them to protect and create the proper infrastructure for promotion of geomorphosites in the area.
