Historically, Tusheti comprised four mountain communities: the Tsova (living in the Tsova Gorge), the Gometsari (along the banks of the Pirikitis Alazani River), the Pirikiti (along the banks of the Pirikitis Alazani River), and the Chaghma, living close to the confluence of the two rivers).

Tusheti is an area that preserved the spirit of the past, and time seems to stand still. These, you can see even though the inhabitants. The vast majority of these are shepherds who spend their days tending their herds with herding dogs. However, they are friendship-minded, willing to talk to strangers, absorb the news of the world, sharing local culture. The great attraction of this region is the stone towers encountered almost in every village. You will also have an opportunity to taste local aromatic and hearty cuisine. So we advise you to see this magnificent land and have unforgettable memories of real life from the past.
