Community based tourism is an emerging form of sustainable tourism.The UNWTO has guided many local communities to develop tourism under the principal of sustainability through the development of Community Based Tourism projects. Many rural tourism initiatives are being conceived within the framework of Community Based Tourism, which combines aspects of community development, poverty alleviation, cultural heritage and conservation. Community Based Tourism CBT or homestay is a new form of tourism product in which tourism is managed by the local communities. The local communities are fully responsible in every aspect of their tourism management ranging from decision making, planning and evaluation. The present study explores the Community Based Tourism potentiality of Ziro Valley, located in the Lower Subansiri District of Arunachal Pradesh State. Ziro Valley is a worth visiting tourist destination to explore the indigenous Apatani tribe who has a unique tradition of nature conservation and natural resource management. As tourism is still in its infancy stage in Ziro, it is imperative to study and identify the sustainable tourism principles so as to preserve the inherent ethnicity thereby making it economically beneficial for the local community. An attempt has been made in this paper to analyze potential for the development of Community based tourism in Arunachal Pradesh general and in Ziro Valley particular.
