Tourism is an activity traveling to a place that is intended to freshen up both soul and body (refreshing), after struggling for so long with routine activities that are considered tiring. Everyone, including people with visual impairment, needs tourism activities and wants the opportunity to travel. Traveling does not have to be done by traveling to far and expensive places. Traveling can be done by visiting a location that is able to help in order to restore both energy and mind. This study used the descriptive method, and the result showed that There are several stimuli caught by the senses of the ears, nose, and skin felt by tourists with visual impairments as a different sensation when they travel in the mountains.
