Abstract: This research aims to study local capacity through regulating the relationships between social, economic and environmental aspects, as well as measuring the sustainability of tourism management. The study was carried out in Ngadas village, Poncokusumo sub-district, Malang regency. The research approach uses surveys to explore qualitative and quantitative data. The method of analysis used path modeling (partly least square, PLS), and a multidimensional scale (MDS). Local capacity has successfully demonstrated the influence of institutions on environmental and economic variables. At the same time, social variables also affect economic variables, and economic variables affect the development of ecotourism. The relationship shows that economic variables become a bridge, which connects the indirect effect of social influence on the development of ecotourism. Measurement of the sustainability index on institutional variables is 41.30, social 36.57, environmental 43.01, and economic 41.76. All variables are categorized as less sustainable. Indicators to support sustainability include infrastructure, improving the village economy, availability of trash bins, protection from landslides, and communication.
