Georgia is one of the few places in the world where transhumance is still alive. Each year it takes two journeys during which people are exposed to weather conditions, diseases and wolves. The weak do not survive the journeys. It takes experience borne out of generations of knowledge to herd sheep from Azerbaijan border to Turkish border and back.
