Geothermal energy has great potential to provide clean energy so that the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can be achieved. The purpose of this study was to identify the geochemical characteristics of the geothermal fluid in the Hungayono area. Geothermal fluid sampling is performed at two points of manifestation which have the highest temperature. The cation and anion testing of geothermal fluid using Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS) and isotope testing using the Picarro Water Isotope Analyzer. Data analysis using Giggenbach diagrams. Hot spring temperatures are 54 - 60°C. The deposits at the point of manifestation are iron oxide with neutral fluid pH. Based on the results of the analysis of cations, anions, and isotopes, the Hungayono geothermal fluid is a type of chloride fluid that has been mixed with meteoric water. Based on the geothermometer calculation, reservoir temperature is 232-234°C. Hungayono Geothermal is a type of system with moderate to high concentration.
