Drokpa

The cultural exuberance of Aryans is clearly reflected in exquisite dresses and ornaments they wear.

 

Costume worn by women is more grand and rich when compared to that worn by men, who rather like to keep it simple ;)

 

The women don special woolen dresses and adorn themselves with shells, beads and pure silver jewellery in multiple layers. Goat skin capes are worn over the back, while unusual headdress decorated with flowers, coins and seashells complete the look.

 

Though it looks absolutely fantastic, I still wonder how they manage to carry the weight and dance while performing rituals.
