Drokpa Women



Drokpa women set off silver and beaded woolen caps with bouquets of flowers. A broad collar of alternating strands of coral beads and silver medallions is worn over heavy, warm goat hair cloaks. Only a few hundred Drokpa--a pure Aryan race--inhabit the restricted Dah-Hanu region of the Himalayas.
