Layap Woman. The Layap are indigenous people inhabiting the high mountains of northwest Bhutan.

“The dress of the Layap women consists of yak wool garments with a distinctive conical pointed hat (that is unique to Laya). The hat is the same hat in which they were banished from Tibet in the 15th century and they continue to wear it to this day. If they fail to wear the hat they believe they will upset the village spirits.”
