Khampa with earring
Khampas (men of Kham) consider themselves handsome, and take great care with their appearance. They are generally taller than other Tibetans (and Chinese), and tend to have straighter noses, although there are many execptions. Khampas are infallibly identified by their trademark red tassels. This man wears a single earring made of turquoise, which is especially popular as personal adornment in the Dege region.
