Monpa Tribal Women from Arunachal Pradesh

I was backpacking through the lovely valleys and hills of Dirang in Arunachal Pradesh when I spotted a group of local women walking along the side of the road. It looked like they were done with their daily quota of work and were heading home.

Their colourful attire, head gear and their smart way of carrying loads were the things that stood out.


It was only later did I find out these women were actually the local Monpa tribal women and were labourers in the neighbouring village.
