This essay delves into the fundamental concepts that underpin environmentally responsible tourism. Governments, environmental and social organisations, and even multinational corporations are all putting pressure on the tourist industry to make the transition towards "sustainable tourism." In the realm of tourist administration and planning, it is very necessary to take into consideration the impacts that tourism has on not only the economy but on the environment and society as a whole. In recent years, community-based tourism has emerged as a viable alternative to traditional tourism in its pursuit of community well-being and empowerment. This shift can be attributed to the growing awareness of the benefits that community tourism can provide. The relevance of community engagement in development, which has resulted in an increase in community-based tourism (CBT), is primarily responsible for the rise of villages as viable tourist destinations. The primary goals of this article are to investigate the difficulties that crop up at various points during the process of community-based tourism development and to discuss strategies that may be used to ensure the sector's continued viability in the long run. This research makes use of secondary sources, such as previously conducted research and scholarly journals, in order to gather, assemble, evaluate, and draw conclusions from the information that these sources provide. According to the findings, the majority of individuals hold the misconception that the type of tourism that takes place inside individual communities is in direct competition with large-scale tourist. Because local people, in general, do not have sufficient knowledge, resources, or strength to solve different issues, local people are basically objects and are particularly susceptible to being exploited. This is because local people do not have appropriate information, resources, or strength to make these decisions. A programme of coordination and transition between relevant agencies or institutions, in field planning, implementation, and implementation of participatory monitoring and evaluation has been put into action as the strategy that has been implemented.
