Vashlovani Protected Areas have long been used as winter pastures, which are of great importance for the population of the Eastern Georgian regions, where livestock breeding is a traditional sector of the economy, particularly for the population of Tusheti. Because of their geographical position and climate, the VPAs and the adjacent Shiraki and Eldari Valleys represent a zone of semideserts with an insignificant amount of precipitation (and rarely as snow) in winters. Thanks to it, the Tusheti population has used these areas as winter pastures for ages.
