Dard Aryan community hails from the valley of Ladakh. The rare tribe has only 4,000 people in India. There is a huge cultural legacy of Ladakh based Dard Aryans. Their costume intrigued me, so did some searching and here is the brief.

Dard women have braided hair with attached false hair for the length. They wear heavey necklace and jewelry. Dard men wear undyed woolen hat embroidered with flower, needles and coins. Their clothing is made of mostly raw wool to keep them warm is extremely cold conditions.
