Tusheti - Located on the northern slopes of the Greater Caucasus Mountains and One of the most ecologically unspoiled regions in the Caucasus. Tusheti is a most popular touristic destination and mountain trekking venue. Historically, Tusheti comprised four mountain communities. The largest village in Tusheti is Omalo. Traditionally, the Tushs are sheep herders. Tushetian Guda cheese and high quality wool was famous and was exported to Europe and Russia. Many of these families practiced a semi-nomadic way of life. Even today sheep and cattle breeding is the leading branch of the economy of highland Tusheti. The locals spend the summer months high up in the mountains between April and October, with the flocks of sheep in the highland areas of Tusheti and wintering their flocks in the lowland, in Kakheti. The descendants of the Old Georgian pagan tribes, whose ancestors had fled from Christianity to Tusheti, are regarded as Tushians. Pork is considered taboo in Tusheti. Farmers will not raise pigs and travelers are usually advised to not bring any pork into the region. Locals will however eat pork themselves when not in Tusheti.
