Today, natural ecotourism has become more and more important not only as an endless source of income, but also as a sustainable development model. The present article has been compiled based on the strategic planning process, with the basic aim of identifying and prioritizing appropriate natural tourism strategies in the village of Qaleh Qafeh Pa'in. The pristine and extraordinary nature of the mountains and the historical background of this region have made Qaleh Qafeh Pa'in a very powerful village in terms of rural tourism. However, this village lacks the necessary facilities and equipment to accommodate tourists and also lacks the appropriate advertising capabilities to attract tourists. The research method in this study was descriptive-analytical and collecting information from library sources and authors' observations from the study area. The analysis is based on the SWOT analysis model, which ultimately leads to the presentation of four strategies. By obtaining four strategies and using the matrix of internal and external factors, the strategic tourism position of Qaleh Qafeh Pa'in village in Minoodasht county, has been determined. The results of this study indicate that the vulnerability threshold of this village is very high and needs to be reviewed and appropriate policies to address weaknesses and avoid threats. Also aggressive-development strategies are the most appropriate method of managing activities and practices and also using the strategic planning matrix, the best aggressive-development strategies were presented in the form of conclusions and practical suggestions.
