Comparison of Quantitative Analysis of Geosite and Geomorphosite for Geotourism Purposes in Baturraden and Guci Hot Springs Tourism Areas, Central Java, Indonesia

Baturraden (Purwokerto) and Guci (Tegal) are renowned tourist destinations situated on the slopes of Gunung Slamet in the Central Java Province. Each site boasts natural hot springs, which hold significant geotourism potential. The research area falls within the Slamet Volcano Lava Rock (Qvls) and Undifferentiated Slamet Volcano Rock (Qvs) regions, comprising Quaternary volcanic formations such as andesitic lava, breccia, tuff, and more. The research was conducted in three stages: literature review, field research, and analysis of geosites and geomorphosites, employing a quantitative assessment method following Kubalikova's approach (2013). Five sites were evaluated: Pancuran-7 and Pancuran-3 in Baturraden, and Pancuran-13, Pancuran-5, and Sigeong hot spring in Guci. The quantitative analysis yielded scores of 82%, 75%, 79%, 79%, and 63% respectively. These results suggest that Pancuran-7, Pancuran-3, Pancuran-13, and Pancuran-5 are highly suitable for geotourism. However, the Sigeong site requires improvement, particularly in infrastructure. Conservation efforts should focus on mitigating existing disaster risks, such as volcanic eruptions and landslides, and potential threats to site sustainability. Additionally, educating residents and visitors about the geological significance of hot spring formation is crucial. This can be achieved through informational signage at the sites and on local websites.
