The conclusions of this study are: Cibodas Village has been running and feeling the impact of community-based tourism and can be an example for other tourist villages in West Bandung Regency. The community of Sunten Jaya Village has not been active in managing tourism activity, this village has the potential to develop community-based tourism with serious assistance and support from the government. Cihanjuang Rahayu Village also has good potential to be developed with the concept of community-based tourism but assistance is still needed to be more focused on improving accessibility and tourism support facilities. Rende Village, there are some issues that need to be addressed in this village related to tourism management, community involvement and village managers where previously there was an assistance but it did not work well.
