|The study started from a modern geographical concept in foreign and Arabic studies. One of the new fields in earth sciences and tourism studies is tourism geomorphology. It is concerned with evaluating the sites of geomorphological value and aims to evaluate the sites of valuable landforms that have acquired aesthetic, religious, economic, historical, heritage, educational, educational, cultural and scientific values according to a concept called, Geomorphosite (M.M, hossein zadeh, S,H), Al-Uzayr region was chosen as a model. The study area is located in the southeast of Maysan Governorate - Iraq) on a latitude (31.19_31.20) north and longitude (47.24_47.27) east, From the results of applying the modified KubaliKava (2013) formula values and criteria used in the study, it became clear that the site is of high value for tourism and economic purposes, and the final evaluation results concluded that the site obtained a percentage of (82.35%), The aesthetic, historical, religious and heritage criteria, geographical preservation, ranked first with a rate of (87.5%), which is a high percentage granted to sites of global value.|
