The Tushs are themselves nowadays based in Alvani, Kakheti, at the feet of the Tushetian mountains. The families live there, whereas the shepherds spend a big part of their time in the mountains or in the steppe.
Except in the only village, Kasristskhari (or Eldari), where live real families, the Tushs, besides some closely related Pshavs and some Azeri shepherds, are a majority in the Steppe. As this pastoral way originates in a nomadic tradition of transhumances, their is almost no woman in the area.
